Friesen, Milton and Joshua J. Yates, Noah Toly, Kristin Ljungkvist, Ram Cnaan. "Religion and the Good of the City: Report 2." Cardus, 2017. https://www.cardus.ca/research/spirited-citizenship/research-report/religion-and-the-good-of-the-city-report-2/
Much academic research and popular media coverage neglects the vital role of religion and religious communities in North American cities. This roundtable report can help stimulate a conversation on how to begin to bridge that gap in your community or sphere of influence. Focusing on the state of research into religion, it is the second report in a three-report series on the social and cultural good of religion in the city. What insights does research provide that could inform people and help shape public relations and policy efforts on behalf of the socio-cultural good of religion? What are the stories that need to be told? What do educators, journalists, and cultural influencers need to know? How could this work be undertaken today?
