Lewis D. Solomon offers a balanced, hardheaded analysis of faith-based organizations, examining what they are, presenting his original 'faith-factor' theory for their effectiveness, and treating the various arguments raised by opponents of faith-based organizations and the new social policy approach, fairly and professionally. This book provides 'reader-friendly' answers to constitutional law questions, empirical studies of effectiveness, and prescriptions for funding and staffing.
