My New Book on Theology has Arrived

My new book, entitled THEOLOGY ABLAZE: Celebrating the 50th Anniversary Year of Unitarian Universalism, has just arrived and copies are now available. This volume explores 29 classic themes such as God and death, silence and forgiveness, evil and justice, love and evolution…with questions for both personal reflection and group discussion.

This book is my essential work on Unitarian Universalist theology, and I’m very excited about it. The Rev. Dr. William Schulz, President and CEO of the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee, has written the Foreword.

Although this blog posting is all new to me, I plan to add a contribution weekly.

Cheers and blessings,

Tom O-T

    Hi! I saw the advertisment for your book Theology Ablaze and went to check it out on The Flaming Chalice Press, but there wasn’t a listing for the site.

    I’m in a class, “Create Your Own Theology” in Ludington, Michigan at People’s Church.
    I would like to read the table of contents and perhaps a bit of the text as I would like to find some new material for our group.

    Any suggestions would be helpful.


    • Suzanne, the book is 328 pages long and starts with a history of UUism since 1961, documenting how we have grown spiritually and deepened in theological dialogue and literacy. The core of the book explicates 29 different theological themes such as love and death, justice and forgiveness, evolution etc. There are questions for personal reflection and group discussion after each chapter. This book is already being used for covenant groups and adult RE classes. I hope this helps and encourages you to order a copy.

      Thanks, Tom Owen-Towle

    Hi Tom, your website is winsome! I’ve perused your latest book, but just purchased it and look forward very much to reading it. I recently went back and reviewed WRESTLING WITH GOD, and appreciated anew just how fine a constructive, practical theologian you are.

    Thank you for this offering.

  4. I thank you very much for what you think about this. But this is very important for me. Thank you.
