Special Easter Edition

Never let it be said that a godless Jew can't celebrate Easter in style. With that in mind, I give you The Prophet:





I have to tell you, when I first saw this I couldn't figure out why Jesus was so damned (ha, get it!) unhappy. Then I read that it was actually Amos on the cover and, yup, still couldn't figure out why he was so unhappy. Did the sheep reject him? That lamb sure doesn't seem to mind be clenched in a stinky guy's arms while said guy howls in pain. Maybe Amos was an early rocker, and he's about to jam with the lamb? Or rock with the flock? Either way this cover worries me.

Note to all artists who draw covers on devotional fiction: PEOPLE IN THE BIBLE WERE BROWN!!! NOT CAUCASIAN!!! Kenny Rogers here would be considered freakishly pale. Okay?! *whew* I feel better.

Rock! Rock!! ROCK!!!

That cover is one of the coolest things I've ever seen. Ol' Amos is really goin' to town on that there sheep.

You know I actually had an argument with someone about whether or not Jesus was blue-eyed?

Won't someone please give Jesus some fiber?

Read Amos (the book in the Bible) and you'll understand.

go ahead. It's short (only a few pages) and he rails on and on and on about everyone going to hell but him. He was the street preacher of his time.

No, don't you see? He's not unhappy at all, but LAUGING MANIACALLY!
The big swiveling executive chairs hadn't been invented yet to depict him sitting in, but it's still all classic Bond-villian composition: Stroking his bleached white pet lovingly while throwing his head back in malicious glee having just dropped his nemesis (Christ....Jesus Christ, Agent 00+) down a trapdoor to an almost assured firey doom.
