Mind, Heart, and Soul in the Fight Against Poverty
November 30, 2003
In this World Bank book, Katherine Marshall and Lucy Keough provide a comprehensive analysis of the role of faith in the global fight against poverty, advocating increased dialogue among development institutions. Marshall and Keough explore numerous issues ranging from community level interventions in support of excluded populations, work on education, and health (including HIV/AIDS), to restoring communities after conflicts and global efforts to bring greater clarity and meaning to challenges such as poor country debt, labor, and the struggle against poverty. They explain that what is emerging is a set of new partnerships founded on common concerns for the welfare of poor communities and the global cause of social justice. Katherine Marshall and Lucy Keough's book highlights the centrality of faith in the human experience.
