About this book

Reviews

Managing Religion is the extensive exploration of the literature of organizational theory and management in search of perspectives to help explain the structures and behaviors of these kinds of organizations. … This is a book whose audience may be … people who care deeply about the Church and its institutions, and who have a strong interest in management and organizational theory. Nonetheless, for people with those particular interests, it may be an engaging and helpful text.” (Thomas H. Jeavons, Nonprofit and Voluntary Sector Quarterly, Vol. 45 (3), June, 2016)
