Faith, Hope and Charity by Paul Martin

PAUL MARTIN’s book Faith, Hope and Charity: The A to Z of govern­ing a charitable organisation is not alpha­betically arranged, as might be in­­ferred from the title, but in sec­tions that begin at the very begin­ning with the spirit of charity and what a charity is, and proceed through types of charities, regula­tion, the image, governance and manage­ment, the board, account­ability, administration, and so on, in 29 chapters, broken up into sub­sections, followed by six appendices and an index. Property, employ­ment, safe­guarding, financial, data-protection, and intellectual-property issues are among the areas covered. Clear presentation with spot colour gives the book an im­­mediate attraction to busy trustees and administrators. The contents are commended by Rob Parsons in a foreword, and by other leading figures from the Evangelical charity world. The author is a senior partner with the Wellers Law
Group in London, and a specialist in charity law (Malcolm Down Publishing, £16.99 (£15.30); 978-19107-8660-4).
