Editorial Reviews

Review

"Provides valuable resources for studies of the effectiveness of faith-based programs. it also provides useful advice for policy-makers concerning how to improve the effectiveness of welfare-to-work programs. Scholars of public policy and scholars of religion and politics will both benefit from the ground-breaking research presented in the book."—Politics and Religion

Review

"A must-read for scholars, lay audiences, and anyone seriously concerned about contemporary social problems like employment in urban America. Monsma and Soper have produced a solid piece of research on a topic long-neglected by social scientists."—Byron Johnson, professor of sociology and director, Center for Religious Inquiry Across the Disciplines, Baylor University, and senior fellow, Religion and Civil Society Program, The Witherspoon Institute

"In this important book, Monsma and Soper offer a trenchant, empirically well-grounded analysis of the comparative effectiveness of the different types of faith-based and secular welfare-to-work programs. Their valuable book will be of broad interest to policymakers, scholars, and practitioners concerned with the future of social services and the role of faith-based organizations in helping people in need."—Steven Rathgeb Smith, professor of public affairs, University of Washington
