Liverpool Unitarians: Faith and Action (edited by Daphne Roberts and David Steers)

The Unitarian churches on Merseyside have an unbroken history that stretches back over four hundred years. In that time they have included in their congregations many people who have made remarkable contributions to the life of Liverpool, the region, and the nation, whether in industry and commerce, in education and the arts or in responding to the needs of society, particularly the poor and marginalized.

This well illustrated book examines a number of prominent individuals and families who have been part of this story. Its contributors are all people who themselves have a contemporary connection with the same community of faith.
