Serving Those in Need: A Handbook for Managing Faith-Based Human Services Organizations

(Edward L. Queen II). Jossey-Bass, 2000.

There is much discussion of the role of faith-based organizations in the provision of social services. This discussion needs to include not just whether FBOs and congregations should take on this role, but how they should manage their responsibilities having done so. This edited book includes such chapters as "Religion and the Emerging Context of Service Delivery," "Funding the Dream," and "Developing Financial Accountability and Controls." The book is meant not just for FBOs but also for congregations. Clergy,laity, and nonprofit executives will benefit from this book.
