Mapping faith in America

Mapping faith in America

Geitner Simmons, a phenomenally bright and collegial fellow, runs the editorial pages of my hometown newspaper, the Omaha World-Herald. He also writes a outstanding blog called Regions of Mind. Geitner has come across a fascinating set of maps put together by the Glenmary Research Center that chart faith in America. Among other things, the maps reveal a Westward shift in the “Bible belt” from the Southeast to the Heartland. Has anyone seen similar maps for Europe? If you have, send us an email. It would be particularly interesting to see concentrations of Islamic followers mapped out in Europe.
