This paper provides an overview of assessing the effectiveness of newly legislated social policies. in an era of growing public reliance on faith-based social services, it is imperative to be accountable and assess the efficacy and effectiveness of this set of providers. it discusses the paucity of such attempts and the complications involved in measuring effectiveness of social programs, especially when religion is involved. it then reviews the contributions provided in this volume and draws conclusions for future studies.
