    1. This is a solid introduction to Unitarian Universalism. It's a VERY brief handling of the foundational ways and thoughts and traditions of UU. As someone just learning about the UU church and principles, this was a helpful resource. And that's the cohort of people this book was written for: the newcomer. I would imagine if you know more than just the most basic ideas of UU, this book won't be very useful to you.

    2. I found this at my local UU church. It's obviously out of date (the 1999 edition) but it's cute, concise, and clear.

    3. It was an okay read. It was sort of dense on names, dates, and little details without too many pictures to help describe it to the reader. I wish they would've used graphics and images to place it better in the reader's mind's eye. It was a good read though overall, because when I first started the book I thought it was a form of Christianity but Unitarian Universalists, while coming from Christian roots are not Christian. UU is a separate religion based on the concept of social justice and a pr [...]

    4. Obviously a good introduction to Unitarian Universalism, but mostly a repetition of what you will find in many other books such as "A Chosen Faith". I think I would recommend that volume more strongly to someone seriously considering the faith or wanting to truly learn about it. But if you don't want to commit to a week of reading or are more interested in the history, then this is certainly a good little collection of essays and a more in depth timeline and history. Definitely a book to keep on [...]

    5. Unitarian Universalism is sometimes critiqued by non UU folks for not being clear about its principles or lacking substance. These critiques reflect a misunderstanding of Unitarian Universalism. This book does a great job of illustrating the principles UU members live by, the movement UU members are involved in, and the history of the UU faith. It's an excellent, brief introduction to a profoundly progressive, healing, and inclusive faith.

    6. This books has helped open my mind about Unitarian Universalism. The articles are well-written, the history of the church is properly traced and concisely retold, and the overall premise of the church is best summarized by the following motto: "We are a religion of deeds, not creeds."

    7. It's short and dry but it provides an excellent overview to the church. I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in UU, but if you are just looking for an interesting religious read, I can recommend many that are better.

    8. With a new introduction by UUA President Sinkford, this edition includes essays on our faith, heritage, worship, religious education, ministry and important dates in UU history. Classic resource for visitors and new members. (Skinner House) 2004. 120pp. 2

    9. This was almost too brief. But what can you expect from a "pocket guide?" It was a good overview, with an excellent list of resources in the back for who those who want a little more in-depth information or history.

    10. Informative in a Pocket Guide kind of way A little dry.cially compared to the energy of the UU meetings I have attended.

    11. An excellent introduction to Unitarian Universalist thought; highly recommended to anyone interested in Unitarian Universalism.

    12. This is a quick, accessible, and reasonably thorough introduction to many aspects of UUism: faith, ministry, worship, religious education, social justice, evangelism, and history.

    13. Short, readable if a bit dry, a basic introduction to the UU doctrine (such as it is.) Kind of an infomercial in print form.

    14. Nice basic introduction to Unitarian Universalism. A good thing to hand to friends/family members who are baffled as to this obscure church you've joined.
