Nesbitt's work stands as an important resource for anyone interested in the role of religion in social change, politics, law, and globalization. It makes a significant contribution in both its breadth and depth of coverage in addressing the role of religion in social policy formation processes. -- William A. Mirola, Marion College * Sociology of Religion: A Quarterly Review * This collection of essays...is a welcome exploration of the nature and role of religious arguments, language, worldviews, assumptions, and leadership in public affairs, especially in the crafting and implementation of social policy and legislation...An important volume for library collections, it will also be useful in...upper-level undergraduate, graduate level, and scholarly and professional settings. -- Christopher Johnson, Gustavus Adolphus College * Religious Studies Review, Vol. 29, # 3 (July 2003) * This book reflects a wide range of topics dealing with various aspects of religion and social policy in different settings around the world. All 15 chapters are interesting in their own right and are intended for a broad audience of scholars, practitioners, and laypersons interested in religion, politics, and social policy....The complex and varied aspects of the relationship between religion and social policy as documented in this collection makes it difficult to summarize and evaluate the book. But this diversity is one of the book's appealing features and makes it well worth reading; Paula Nesbitt deserves our gratitude. -- D.
