Re-Discovering Charity
By  Andrew Lightbown   Click to see more Items by this Author
Book Description Has charity had its day? Does it simply create dependency? How does it relate to aid? This book is written for anyone with an interest in the role of charity in the 21st century: those in the academic community, those who work in the charity world, those who give (and those who don't), Christians and non-Christians. Based both on academic research and in-depth interviews with recipients of charity in a village in rural Uganda, the book aims to invite people to take another look at charity, clear away some of the myths and misunderstandings that have accumulated over time, and re-discover its transformational power. Review Charity is a compromised word today. It conjures up images of Victorian piety and patronage. But this book redefines the virtue of Charity and testifies to its continuing power and relevance today. It demonstrates both theoretically and practically how well-being increases when ordinary people love ordinary people. I warmly commend it. --The Venerable David Meara Archdeacon of London This lively volume re-instates charity as one of the great defining actions of faith. The authors draw clear and helpful distinctions between charity and its near but different neighbours - aid, philanthropy and altruism - and demonstrate in lived examples the transforming effect of genuine charity. This is an unusual and heartening story and one which deserves careful reflection and enjoyment. --Rt Revd John Pritchard Is there any think we need more than love -- acting, thinking, and being about love? Lightbown and Fane invite us to reflect deeply and act boldly to promote well-being. In doing so, we express charity and thereby contribute to the loving reign of God in the world. --Dr. Thomas Jay Oord About the Author Andrew Lightbown worked in the investment management industry for fifteen years. Andrew first visited Kabubbu, with Quicken Trust, in 2004. His experience in Uganda and his friendship with the people of the Quicken Trust led Andrew to radically review his vocation. Andrew left the City of London in 2006 and returned to university. Andrew now lectures in Management and Business Ethics at the University of Buckingham. His research is concerned with understanding the economic manifestations and consequences of Christian charity. Andrew is married to Sallyanne and they have two daughters: Katherine and Elizabeth. The Lightbown family are frequent visitors to Kabubbu and are all actively involved with the work and mission of the Quicken Trust. Nick Fane has been a teacher (of English), education officer and local government manager. Now formally retired from but informed by experience in these roles, he works part-time as a counsellor for a Christian counselling agency, among other voluntary activities. He has a long-standing amateur interest in the psychology of religion. He is married to Sue and they have a grown-up family. They are supporters of Quicken Trust s work in Uganda, and frequently visit South Africa.
