About Book

One Country, Volume 9 Number 1, October-December 2000
Anyone who is concerned about issues related to world poverty, sustainable development and globalization will find this book of interest.

Wendy Tyndale, Coordinator of the Faiths, World Faiths Development Dialogue
"This is a fascinating and highly informative book on a topic that is vital for our day."

Book Description
Current international development discourse is starting to look at how religion affects globalization, peacebuilding and the environment. But how do the roles, approaches and world views of science, religion and international development intersect? And how does this intersection express itself in different cultures?

The Lab, the Temple and the Market tackles these questions in four outstanding chapters, each meshing a discussion of development issues and processes with a different religious belief system: Hinduism, Christianity, Islam and the Baha'i Faith. Each contributor, a scientist as well as a person of faith, shows how religious belief and personal faith can be deeply motivational and fruitful in scientific pursuits.

This work furthers the search for a more "people-centered" model of development and for a scientific practice that supports tolerance, sustainability, peace and justice. It is for all those who feel that current models of (and approaches to) human progress are constructed on a too-narrow definition of humanity.
