Our Theological House: An Introduction to Unitarian Universalist Theologies

Many progressives do not realize that they even have a theology, much less that there is a systematic theological worldview that is characteristic of the liberal/progressive tradition. This course, developed by Starr King President and Professor of Theology Rebecca Parker, has now resulted in a book, published in early 2010, co-authored with John Buehrens. Using readings from the history of American liberal theology and contemporary progressive sources, those enrolled–ministers, religious educators, lay leaders, and seminarians–will have a chance to deepen their theological competency and creativity, to reflect on the dynamic post-modern context, and to engage in online discussion with others exploring a progressive approach to the classic issues of systematic theology, including the nature of God and humanity, the purpose of religious community, issues of salvation, worship, Christology, and Spirit.
