THE VOICE OF ONE CRYING OUT IN THE WILDERNESS...,
This review is from: National Geographic (Magazine)
A rose in Hell would be all the fairer as a God-breathed thing casting its beauty even in depths of darkness.
I have grown quite fond of National Geographic Magazine over the past few years. I am not a subscriber. My parents are. Yet, even as occasional bathroom lit, this magazine has enlightened me on much and changed my view on a subject more than once.
Is there any greater prophetic voice calling out in the wilderness today? None that I have found.
National Geographic has been going after some HUGE issues: the diamond trade, modern slavery, global warming, the epidemic of obesity, nuclear waste. They have covered these issues well and cast a bright light on many of the world's darkest places.
In this new age--where we have been softened and too often cozened by the prevalence of opinion, attitude and style over fact--National Geographic is the one place I know I can go for hard hitting journalism and writing (and excellent images--let's not forget that here) that rises above the everyday.
This remarkable magazine accomplishes all this and still covers the interesting places of the world (and beyond) with excellence. One recent article of this sort that springs to mind is one they did on Badlands National Park. I visited the park this summer and feel that my visit was deepened and enhanced by having first read the article.
I give National Geographic my highest recommendation.
