Editorial Reviews


"Criticizes the motivations and results of the president's policy of involving religious organizations in the delivery of social services."


The Chronicle of Higher Education

"Wineburg wanted to pretend impartiality and provide a study of several representative cities in the US, in order to impress his colleagues and protect his status as an academic. He could not even begin until he decided instead to tell the story he knew to be true. Drawing from 20 years of data he has gathered since the Reagan administration, he describes religious based social services and sectarian services in Greensboro, and the community's reaction to continuing policy changes."


Reference & Research Book News


"No one will accuse Bob Wineburg of pulling punches in this hard-hitting critique of the Bush Administration's faith-based initiative. But the book offers much more than a critique. By weaving the story of a successful church-based social service effort into his analysis of the national initiative, Wineburg shows us a better way to enhance partnerships between government and religious organizations providing social services: promote cooperation rather than competition among community agencies, and build on local knowledge and experience." (Mark Chaves, Professor of Sociology, University of Arizona)

Format: Hardcover
Of all of the studies I have ever engaged in our John l4:12 "Because you believe in Me (TRUTH) greater works will you do than I" outreach to Veterans Incarcerated, this study goes beyond any separation of church and state - how can we get copies through our Faith-based nonprofit?
