This is the most complete introduction to Unitarian Universalism available, covering ministry, worship, religious education, social justice, and history. Extensively revised, the sixth edition prepares readers with resources and information for this crucial moment in Unitarian Universalism. It also gives voice to many individual Unitarian Universalists—people of all ages, coming from many backgrounds and holding many beliefs—as they share their personal and deeply heartfelt testimonies. Contributors include Rosemary Bray McNatt, Erika Hewitt, Cheryl Walker, Jessica York, Elizabeth Nguyen, Aisha Hauser, and Dan McKanan. The foreword was written by lifelong Unitarian Universalist Melissa Harris-Perry—writer, professor, political commentator, and editor-at-large at Elle.com.
