Not by Faith Alone : Social Services, Social Justice, and Faith-based Organizations in the United States Paperback
Edited by Julie Adkins, Laurie A. Occhipinti, Tara Hefferan
This volume builds on the existing ethnographic literature on faith-based development internationally to offer a fresh and sophisticated analysis of faith-based organizations in the United States.
The case studies included offer starting points for expanded discussions on the meaning of 'faith-based' development, the differences between faith-based and secular development approaches, the influence of faith-orientation on program formulation and delivery, and whether faith-based organizations can offer more efficient and effective solutions to structural inequality and poverty alleviation.
