Over at Transient and Permanent, there's great thread about the history of congregation v. denominational polity among the Unitarians, circa 1870-1945. Great if you like that kind of thing, anyway. So about 10 comments down, Murfin says "Check the standard Unitarian histories."
So what would those be. More to the point, if you had, say, $200 to build up a congregational library's History section, what would you buy? Or if you were stocking the book-sale tables at a district event, what histories would you be sure to include? (I'm thinking of specifically UU history.)
I'll throw out a few to start with
- The Larger Faith: A Short History of American Universalism- Charles A. Howe
- The Premise and the Promise: The Story of the Unitarian Universalist Association - Warren Ross
- Stream of Light: A Short History of American Unitarianism - Conrad Wright
