Bridging the Gaps: Faith-based Organizations, Neoliberalism, and Development in Latin America and the Caribbean

March 1, 2009

Bridging the Gaps: Faith-based Organizations, Neoliberalism, and Development in Latin America and the Caribbean examines the particular role of faith-based agencies in Latin America. Essays from experienced contributors, grounded in empirical case studies, explore topics like the meaning of "faith-based" development, the influence of faith orientation on program efficiency and format, and the difference between faith-based and secular development approaches, all set in the context of the globalization of neoliberal philosophies and economic models. The book ultimately reveals both the benefits and the limitations of the increasing proliferation of faith-based NGOs in Latin America.
