Summary
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
