520 1 |a "In God We Trust? represents one of the first significant efforts to assess recent attempts to address American social problems through faith-based organizations. Lewis D. Solomon takes an in-depth look at faith-based organizations, the basis of one of the most controversial and groundbreaking pieces of legislation proposed by President George W. Bush in his "compassionate conservatism." The Bush administration had emphasized the potential value of these organizations for curing social ills, but many have questioned both the effectiveness and legality of federally funding them. Using empirical evidence, Solomon argues that such organizations are highly effective. 
520 8 |a He also explores the major obstacles facing the federal effort to fund faith-based organizations, spending considerable time on the financial and legal challenges that have been posed by political opponents. In God We Trust? is a timely analysis of a deeply important issue."--BOOK JACKET.
