No religion has received as many headlines or as much misunderstanding in recent years as Islam. Our panelists study the faith in its many manifestations, from everyday lives in Indonesia and Malaysia to the extreme edge of violent terrorism. Come beyond the front page for a thoughtful take on this prismatic theology.

Dalam beberapa tahun terakhir ini, tak ada agama yang mendapatkan pemberitaan atau kesalahpahaman sebanyak yang didapatkan Islam. Panelis-panelis kami mempelajari keimanan dan manifestasinya, dari kehidupan sehari-hari di Indonesia dan Malaysia hingga ke dampak yang diakibatkan oleh kekerasan terorisme. Pahami hal mendasar di balik pemberitaan utama untuk mendapatkan pencerahan mendalam mengenai teologi prismatik ini.
