Each chapter of this important and innovative book narrates the inspiring story of how faith is the prime motivation for an organised response to social and political need in different contexts.
This book tells the story of a number of different faith-based organizations based in different parts of Europe, but characterized by the same set of goals and aspirations to bring faith-inspired action into contexts of social injustice and marginalization in urban areas.

Andrew Williams

Andrew Williams is a human geographer. After graduating from the University of Bristol in 2007, with a BSc in Human Geography and MSc in Society and Space, Andrew worked as a research assistant for the University of Bristol's Widening Participation Research Cluster. In 2008, he arrived in Exeter to work with Paul Cloke on an EU 7th Framework project investigating faith-based responses to poverty and social exclusion in European cities. Subsequently, he went on to complete doctoral research on faith-based drug services in the UK.
Building on his interest in ethics, volunteerism and neoliberalism, his work with Mark Goodwin examines the impact of recent political-economic restructuring on small towns in Devon. In particular, he is interested in how different places have been used to constitute, or resist, new forms of neoliberal subjectivity in the UK countryside.
