Description

* Focuses on anthropological analyses of and engagements with Christian faith-based organizations (FBOs). * Examines the varied and shifting meanings of religiosity, volunteerism, "doing good," development, charity, and justice * Calls for a greater understanding of the macro-level promises and pitfalls of increasing reliance on FBOs to design and deliver social services and development * Redresses the imbalance of anthropological studies that have focused on the role of secular NGOs
