Editorial Reviews

Review

?It consists of a narrative text, an extensive series of biographical sketches ... and a comprehensive bibliographical essay, thus recommending itself as an essential part of any reference collection. The narrative itself is a very able analysis of the intellectual and theological development of Unitarianism and Universalism in America.... What it does ... it does extremely well, and is highly recommended as a reference tool and a contribution to the history of American religious thought.?-Choice

17 of 20 people found the following review helpful By Thomas Hochmann on September 17, 2005
Format: Paperback
I'll keep this review short and sweet, because there's not much to say, really. /The Unitarians and Universalists/ offers a comprehensive look at the history of Unitarianism and Universalism, and their mixing in recent times. However, the book is rather dry and offers very little "food for thought." It's mostly names, dates, and movements. The writing is uninspired and not very compelling.

As a guide to the history of UU, this book is acceptable. I've encountered far more interesting books and essays on the subject, however. The level of detail is high, but you will definitely not find yourself reading this book for anything beyond obscure details of the past.

I recently gave this book a second try and am very glad I did. This book is an indispensable reference to the many struggles in a religious tradition that is largely trying to move away from previous religious traditions. I’m finding it very helpful in addressing my own very large questions about Unitarian Universalism and its future prospects and relevance. It sheds much light into the struggles inherent in such an institutional framework and provides a survey of those very thoughtful Unitarian and Universalist thinkers who fought and supported this denomination.
