Hi Thomas, 
You'd need to check with Time Magazine directly, or else google the photographer's name from the credit information. I don't know any of the photo editors there any more, having left in 2007. But the main number should still be 212-555-1212.

Contextual translation attempting to capture the perception of contemporary hearers. This reading was presented in worship of Rutgers Presbyterian Church on 2011-11-13 by the church youth. N Or think about it this way.    S...
