Religion, Global Health, and Human Rights

Author: Susan R. Holman

Publisher: Oxford University Press

ISBN: 0190228237

Category: Religion

Winner of the 2016 Grawemeyer Award in Religion Global health efforts today are usually shaped by two very different ideological approaches: a human rights-based approach to health and equity-often associated with public health, medicine, or economic development activities; or a religious or humanitarian "aid" approach motivated by personal beliefs about charity, philanthropy, missional dynamics, and humanitarian "mercy." The underlying differences between these two approaches can create tensions and even outright hostility that undermines the best intentions of those involved. In Beholden: Religion, Global Health, and Human Rights, Susan R. Holman--a scholar in both religion and the history of medicine--challenges this traditional polarization by telling stories designed to help shape a new perspective on global health, one that involves a multidisciplinary integration of religion and culture with human rights and social justice. The book's six chapters range broadly, describing pilgrimage texts in the Christian, Hindu, Buddhist, and Islamic traditions; the effect of ministry and public policy on nineteenth-century health care for the poor; the story of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as it shaped economic, social, and cultural rights; a "religious health assets" approach based in Southern Africa; and the complex dynamics of gift exchange in the modern faith-based focus on charity, community, and the common good. Holman's study serves as an insightful guide for students and practitioners interested in improving and broadening the scope of global health initiatives, with an eye towards having the greatest impact possible.

HE HAS TO HAVE HER Despite his vow to remain a bachelor and sire no children, Octavius Rupert Henry Mayne, eighth earl of Lexden, wed Eleanor Dryden. Their physical connection was explosive-and brief. Regretting the marriage almost before the vow left his lips, Lex banished his new wife to the country. Now, six years later, she must come back. Lex needs her like he needs a backfiring musket: her fiery temper, her flashing green eyes, the elemental attraction he's never been able to shake...and her desire to talk. Yet a charade must play out if he is to avenge himself and his father. For that, Eleanor must be silent and compliant. She must not bring "their" son. Above all, she must not pry into his past or his family's tragic secrets and besiege the desperate fortress around his heart. Otherwise he will be beholden to her, and love, so long denied, shall return.

BeholdenVol. 4 of Love Through the Ages, a 5-Book Bundle of Contemporary Romance Novellas By R. J. Will One week after Clare graduated as the valedictorian of her high school senior class, her parents were killed in a horrific car crash.The tragedy set Clare adrift, and she ended up canceling her plans to go to college. Instead, she stayed home and married Henry, her high school sweetheart.The early years of Henry and Clare's marriage, when their two children were growing up, were happy years. Clare suffered from empty-nest syndrome after the kids were grown and gone, but in time she got over it. Or thought she did. Now in her mid-50s, her dissatisfaction with being what she called a "stay-at-home wife" was growing. She wanted to be more than that. She wanted to "do something of worth" before she died. The empty-nest syndrome had not disappeared; it had merely morphed into a burning desire to work outside of her home. Henry, who described himself as "old school," was fiercely against the idea, and their marriage started to unravel. Enter Steve, a classmate of Henry and Clare's who had been a big-city banker before he returned to his hometown to manage the local bank. Steve had a shock of silver hair and a silver tongue to match. He reconnected with Clare and offered her what she considered a dream job – running the food bank he wanted to set up. But there was a catch. Steve made it clear he expected certain favors from Clare. Let the power struggle begin.
