This volume collects several of Amy Sherman's published and unpublished reflections on "faith-based welfare reform". Part One estabishes why public policymakers should care about the faith community, including both a discussion of the specific contributions religious institutions are making to solve social problems and an analysis of how religious institutions are strengthening society's moral and cultural fibre. Part Two describes models of faith in action, giving a human face to the issue while reminding readers that the policy debate over faith-based organizations is about improving service to the needy. Later sections specifically address government-faith collaboration, highlighting general principles and specific "lessons learned" from a variety of efforts in the last five years, concluding with specific recommendations for unleashing the power of faith-based organizations.
