Christianity Today Article Named to Daily Beast’s “Best Long Reads of 2012”

jang_from_CTThe Daily Beast, a renowned news reporting and opinion website  announced its best reads of 2012 recently, and named Christianity Today‘s (CT) investigative piece on Korean evangelical leader David Jang, “The Second Coming Christ Controversy”, as one of their “Best Long Reads of 2012.” CT noted the accolade in a recent news release.

The investigative report, co-written by journalist Ken Smith and CT online managing editor Ted Olsen, examines David Jang.

David Jang is controversial. Part of the controversy comes from alleged claims  he is the “Second Coming Christ.” Some websites allege that David Jang used to be a member of Sun Myung Moon’s “Unification Church” (the “Moonie” Church) in the 1980s. The CT article seeks to address those issues.

Jang is as busy as he is controversial. He’s the founder or financier of several youth mission organizations, including the Young Disciples of Jesus in China, Apostolos Campus Ministry and Olivet University. He also is behind several influential for-profit websites, like the Christian Post, Christian Today (not to be confused with Christianity Today), the Gospel Herald, and the International Business Times.  The CT piece fairly lends a voice to both critics and defenders of Jang and his ministry.
