What are the key debates in religion and public life? Temple Tracts is a series of seven short and accessible e-books offering engaging analysis, case studies and discussions on current important issues for religion and society.The first title in the series Faith, Progressive Localism & the Hol(e)y Welfare Safety Net is written by William Temple Foundation Associate Research Fellow Greg Smith, who has 40 years’ experience working in urban mission and community development. Launching the series, Smith’s pre-election analysis of the British welfare system takes a candid look at the role of faith-based organisations, and asks how and why these groups try to plug the service gaps created by government spending cuts. Faith, Progressive Localism & the Hol(e)y Welfare Safety Net explores the relationship between Local Authorities and faith-based service providers, through a combination of revealing case studies from the North West of England, and strong theoretical analysis.
