Knox students launch new journal examining faiths

From:  The Register-Mail

Knox College students have launched a new publication that encourages religious dialogue and represents what its editors describe as “a continuation of our desire to learn from and grow with one another.”

The inaugural issue of Fusion: Knox College Theology Journal can be viewed at http://fusionatknox.com/journal/ The publication’s mission: “Promoting awareness of, and respect for the various faith systems represented at Knox College.

In an editors note, co-editors-in-chief Yumna Rathore and Kyle Cruz wrote that they hope “this journal will go a long way toward bridging some of the gap of understanding that still separates us from one another. We believe it is always  necessary to think and speak intelligently about issues concerning faith.”

Knox College faculty member James Thrall, the Knight Distinguished Assistant Professor for the Study of Religion and Culture, serve as Fusion advisor. “The journal was very much a student generated project from the initial idea to the writing and editing,” Thrall said. “I have been quite impressed with their energy in making the journal come to be, and with their thoughtfulness in conceiving of the journal’s purpose.”
