A Spectrum of Faith
Knjiga/udžbenik u izdanju Drake Univerziteta koja je svjetlo dana ugledala u četvrtak, 6. aprila 2017. godine u kojoj je opisana bosanska kula odnosno Islamsko-edukativni centar EZAN u Des Moines-u baš u pravom svijetlu te u kojoj je jasno i nedvosmisleno spomenut počinjeni genocid nad Bošnjacima. Ova knjiga/udžbenik biti će svojevrstan dokument koji će BiH i Bošnjake štititi od falsifikovanja i podmetanja lažne historije.

A Spectrum of Faith invites readers on a vivid pictorial journey into the diverse religious communities of greater Des Moines. Explore the south-side office park transformed into a Buddhist monastery or the Basilica in the city’s center named to the National Registry of Historic Places; discover the Hindu temple rising above the cornfields of nearby rural Madrid, or the mosque, temple or gurudwara tucked away in a neighborhood near you.
The book, a 134-page coffee-table-style paperback, is a culmination of more than two years of work by Drake students and faculty, as well as numerous academic courses, an editorial board, a local photographer, donors, community-involved committees, and an interfaith partner. Rich with stunning images, each chapter is a story of one faith community written by a student who spent several months immersed in that community. While the production of the book enhanced the skill sets and portfolios of students and faculty alike, the goal from the beginning was to bring the local diversity of religious faiths and their sacred spaces to light.
“One goal of this book is to make Iowans more aware of the rich diversity of religion in their state and how that diversity is a function of Iowa’s rich history of welcoming refugees and immigrants,” said Tim Knepper, professor of philosophy at Drake and editor of the book.
