Skinner House Books is a book publisher run by the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA), specializing in books for Unitarian Universalists -- meditation manuals, worship and church resources, and books on theology, UU history and social justice concerns. The editorial direction of Skinner House is provided by the Skinner House Board, a body of UUA staff and non-staff.

The publisher began as an imprint of Beacon Press in 1976, and later split off,[when?] with its own name. Skinner House Books is named after Clarence Skinner (1881-1949), a Universalist minister, writer, and social activist who was Dean of the Crane Theological School at Tufts University.
