Dr. Michael Mickler Published in Book on Minority Religions

UTS is pleased to announce that Dr. Michael Mickler, UTS Vice-President and Professor of Church History, has contributed a chapter to a newly published book, Minority Religions and Spiritual Movements: Reactions to the Law by Minority Religions, edited by Eileen Barker and James T. Richardson.

Out of a total of thirteen chapters, Dr. Mickler’s “No Stranger to Litigation: Court Cases Involving the Unification Church/Family Federation in the United States,” is one of two pieces that have been contributed by Unificationists. Mr. Peter Zoehrer is the contributor of the other chapter entitled, “Legal Challenges Posed to the Unification Church in Europe: Perspectives from a Unificationist Advocate for Religious Freedom.” Both chapters provide an in-depth account of the legal battles that the Unification Church has faced in both America and in Europe.

We invite members of our UTS community to participate in the upcoming online book launch, hosted by the Information Network on Religious Movements (Inform) on Thursday, April 29.
