From the Publisher"Tomalin adds a great deal to our understanding of how religion and development intersect. This intersection of religion and development has long been ignored, misunderstood or misrepresented in the literature. This important book goes a long way to correcting this imbalance." Professor Matthew Clarke, Deakin University, Australia.
"An understanding of the links between religion and development, literacy in relevant concepts, approaches and faith traditions is much needed, as well as an understanding of the evidence on how the relationships play out in varying contexts. This book provides a provocative and readable introduction, examining religious perspectives on some key development issues (wealth and poverty, human rights, gender inequality, environmentalism) as well as a measured consideration of the development roles of so-called 'faith-based organisations." Carole Rakodi, Emeritus Professor, University of Birmingham, UK.
