Warning: Rating for even numbered chapters only!

The book is actually co-authored; Forrest Church writes the odd number chapters and Buehrens writes the even. The two have completely different styles of writing, which Church acknowledges in the forward (which begs the question of why they would attempt such a book). It makes it feel like two different books altogether. Beuhrens' is far better and clearly quenches the objective of the book, giving a splendid introduction and education on Unitarian Universalism. I urge him to write his own book. Church, ironically, represents the very kind of religion I would assume UU's want to avoid. He "preaches" (he even compares himself to a spider - one "who spins what he has to say out of himself") and often speaks in complexed, theologian rehtoric that only a scholastic author of religion text books would understand. You might as well read a King James Hymnal. Buehrens words flow like Emersons, which warm with logic and burst with revelation the way one's free religion teachings should. Skip the odd chapters and you'll be satisfied.

An Excellent Introduction to Unitarian Universalism

This book clearly explains what Unitarian Universalism is. At the same time, it is an incredibly enjoyable read. I find it inspirational and insightful. I recommend this book to anyone looking for an open-minded faith that emphasizes service and the search for Truth instead of dogma.
