This book explores what becomes of faiths when seen as social capital. In the grip of the current debt crisis, where the social and capital seem increasingly unbalanced, this book examines whether faiths can help rebalance society through drawing communities together.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Not only is this book a wonderful introduction to what faith-based social action contributes to the UK today, it also puts forward a striking and significant argument. Dinham suggests that the notion of 'social capital', fashionable with policy-makers and faith groups alike, has been so hollowed out that it fails to make sense of faith's distinctive contributions to society - good and bad. Faith has many dimensions, not least reverence for what is good, true and Godly. To judge it in terms of the 'capital' it can generate is to subject it to a market logic which turns it into a mere instrument of social policy and economic progress'. - Linda Woodhead, Professor of the Sociology of Religion, Lancaster University and Director of the AHRC/ESRC Religion and Society Programme, UK

'a stimulating read' - Roger McCormick, LSE Review of Books
