Unitarian Universalist “Common Read”

Reclaiming Prophetic Witness: Liberal Religion in the Public Square by Paul Rasor (Skinner House Books, 2013) asserts that conservative Christianity is not the only valid religious voice in our national social policy. The 2014-15 Common Read invites Unitarian Universalists to explore and claim our contribution, as religious liberals, to the pressing moral and ethical debates of our contemporary world. 

The UUA Bookstore offers Reclaiming Prophetic Witness at a bulk discount (five or more books).

By October 2014, a discussion guide for the 2014-15 Common Read will be posted on the UUA website offering plans for a single 90-minute session and a series of three 90-minute sessions.  

Why Participate?

A Common Read invites participants to read and discuss the same book in a given period of time. A Common Read can build community in our congregations and our movement by giving diverse people a shared experience, shared language, and a basis for deep, meaningful conversations.

Each year's Common Read is chosen by a committee including both headquarters and field staff of the UUA. Anyone may nominate a book. Read the criteria for Common Read selection. Nominate a book for 2015-16 using our online form.
