Faith & Giving: From Christian Charity to Spiritual Practice
Written By: Robert Wuthnow, Ph.D.
Robert Wuthnow, Ph.D. argues that we need to consider religion and giving in relation to the important social and cultural changes which are taking place in our society and in our world at the start of the 21st century. To do this, we need to consider the relationship between religion and giving less as a matter involving the motives and decisions of isolated individuals and more as an aspect of social life that is embedded in social institutions.
Robert Wuthnow is Gerard R. Andlinger ’52 Professor of Sociology Emeritus and former director of the Princeton University Center for the Study of Religion.
