Default what do you see here?

There is an add that says:
Jimmy Swaggart made me Catholic!
As an European, I am perplexed at the photo. It would not attract me at all to buy the book but it should attract many for of sure it is appealing for many people.

The guy is with a micro in one hand (out of fashion), mouth wide open like shouting, leaning forward and with an extended fashion with the 5 fingers in a circle.

It looks lihe he is shouting something ofr a crowd. shouting what? It looks more of a Protestant Preacher than a Catholic Monk.

I am not criticizing anybody, only saying my feelings. But would other people interpret that image in another way, please?

Thanks.

I'm sure Tim Staples has exactly the thought-provoking image he wants on the book.

If you don't know his story, it's well worth the read!
