The Ambiguous Embrace: Government and Faith-Based Schools and Social Agencies

Synopsis

"This book has much to offer scholars and policymakers. The recommendations with which Glenn concludes are challenging and are likely to spark useful debate."--William Galston, University of Maryland, College Park

"Glenn's argument is an impressive one, making a comprehensive case for a new relationship between government and faith-based organizations that will meet the Constitution's First Amendment requirements, protect the autonomy of the faith-based organizations, and answer some of the most important questions about the crisis of the welfare state and the relation of government to civil society."--James W. Skillen, Center for Public Justice
