Ten case histories of successful collaboratives show how positive socio-economic changes were accomplished at local, regional, and national levels.

Religious collaboration is a unique organizational form that aggregates people, power and financial resources to leverage socio-economic change for the common good. This is a book of hope. It reveals how the successful collaboratives built trust, cooperation, and effective long-term strategies for achieving social justice. The qualities that make religious collaboration effective are defined and described. Resource materials are provided for study and action.

This book is unique in its sharp focus on the values and social technologies of religious collaboration, qualities that are highly useful in today's politically and economically challenging times.
