The innoFaith Reading List
The following is a list of books and articles, some faith-focused, some not, that we think provide a great foundation for understanding social innovation generally and in the context of faith. Some of them are specifically about social innovation or social entrepreneurship. Some are the stories of social innovation. Some are by social innovators. We think you will enjoy and learn from all of them.
We are always updating the list. Do you have other recommendations? Send them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
