Item Description...
An insightful new book on the challenges of international development and how the church can gain a more effective voice in working for solutions.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
An interesting study  Oct 11, 2003
Mr. Lawlor uses a scholarly, yet readable approach to this subject. Well worth reading for any "religious" economist.
