I really like the idea of a book of the month. Why not let you know what I’m reading and invite discussion? That’s it. Its official!
The “UU Growth Blog Book of the Month” for December 2009 is The Almost Church Revisited, by Michael Durall. Perfect for some inspired action come the new year. This title is not a reworking of the original Almost Church but an entire new edition.
You can order it from the UUA Bookstore here or directly through Durall’s Vital Congregations website with great discounts for bulk orders.
Have ideas for a future book of the month? Comment below.
