In addition to the books I’ve published on my own, I have also co-authored, with John Sias, One Hundred Questions Non-Members Ask About Unitarian Universalism. (Transition Publishing, 1993). This book has been carried by the UUA Bookstore for nearly 20 years and continues to sell well. The copyright is owned by the UU Church of Nashua, NH, and the text has been shared with numerous UU congregations who include it on their websites.

Kerouac’s Nashua Connection

(Transition Publishing, 1999). This book explores author Jack Kerouac’s French-Canadian ancestry and how it gets reflected in several of his novels—especially the ones that deal with his childhood and adolescent years in Lowell, Massachusetts.

The Beat Face of God: The Beat Generation Writers as Spirit Guides

Troubadour and Poet: The Magical Ministry of Ric Masten

Troubadour and Poet: The Magical Ministry of Ric Masten

(Trafford Publishing, 2007). This book offers an overview of the life of Rev. Ric Masten—best known in UU circles as the writer/composer of Let It Be A Dance—and his troubadour ministry with Unitarian Universalists from the late 1960s until his death in 2008. It also uses Ric’s alternative style of ministry to shed light on some of the more basic areas of ministry in the liberal tradition.

Bring Your Own God—The Spirituality of Woody Guthrie.

(Trafford Publishing, 2012). This book is the result of two years of research at the Woody Guthrie Foundation and Archives. Drawing on letters, journals, and scribbled notes by Woody Guthrie it illustrates how he had a very rich and well informed religious and spiritual life. This is a dimension of Guthrie’s life that his biographers have not devoted a great deal of attention, and this work “fills in the gap.”
