Skinner House Books

Skinner House Books publishes titles directly aimed at the spiritual needs of Unitarian Universalists, seekers, and others who share the values of liberal religion. Skinner House publishes worship and church resources, books on theology and religious history, books for children and families, introductions to Unitarian Universalism, pastoral resources, and religious commentary on current issues and social justice concerns. While all Skinner House books express the Principles of Unitarian Universalism, many are distributed to the general public and accessible to people of all faiths or none. Content from Skinner House books is woven throughout Unitarian Universalist ministerial formation, preaching and worship, religious education, small group ministry, outreach, and programming at congregational and national levels.
