Beholden: Religion, Global Health, and Human Rights

Susan Holman's Beholden: Religion, Global Health, and Human Rights has won 2016's Grawemeyer Award in Religion. Set up by the late H. Charles Grawemeyer, the Awards celebrate "the power of creative ideas, emphasizing the impact a single idea can have on the world."  Talking about Holman's book, prize director Shannon Craigo-Snell said:

“Holman investigates specific events, people and situations to glean wisdom regarding both religion and global health. By the final chapter, she evokes an image of global humanity in which we all recognize that we are beholden to one another—both givers and receivers in inescapable interconnection.”
