Millennium Challenges for Development and Faith Institutions

Richard Marsh Katherine Marshall
Price: $ 15

Faith organizations and development institutions can work together to alleviate poverty and combat social injustices. This premise inspired World Bank President James D. Wolfensohn and Archbishop of Canterbury George Carey to launch a dialogue aimed at strengthening partnerships and understanding between the worlds of faith and development. It is in this context that leaders from the world¿s faith communities and key development organizations, as well as representatives from the worlds of philanthropy, the private sector, and the arts, joined together to explore new ways to meet global challenges.

The major themes of their dialogue were the Millennium Development Goals, poverty, HIV/AIDS, gender, social justice, and conflict¿and the urgency of a shared responsibility in confronting these challenges. What emerged is a vision of stewardship, global cooperation, and pragmatic compassion¿a vision that emerges powerfully in the essays and the case studies of development-faith partnerships brought together in this book.

The product of a historic meeting between the worlds of faith and development, this book reflects debate on the disparate effects of globalization, trade, and international politics on poor and rich countries and points the way toward future collaboration in the creation of a world free of poverty.
