Product Description

The Urantia Book may be the most powerful evidence ever that mankind is not alone and that there is intelligent life in the Universe. The Urantia Book boldly claims to be a revelation of truth to our world from a friendly and well-ordered universe. A revelation, in book form, intended to help guide humankind into the next era of evolutionary progress. It provides a deeper appreciation and understanding of our own planetary family, as well as our place in the cosmic family of freewill intelligent beings. It reveals as never before an infinite circle of creation, at the center of which reigns our beneficent and loving creator.
 
First published in 1955, The Urantia Book is a literary masterpiece that harmonizes science, religion, and philosophy, while illuminating mankind s origin, history and destiny. A full third of the book is devoted to the life and teachings of Jesus and is undoubtedly the most sublimely beautiful story of Jesus ever told.

Part I, The Central and Super Universe, deals with God the first source and center all things and beings in a vast creation. It reveals as never before the perfect and loving nature of God, who is not only our Creator but the creator of a Universe of Universes. It exquisitely portrays God s as the divine source of all that is and the divine parent of every freewill intelligent being. It provides unfathomable depth in describing both the spiritual and physical organization of the entire cosmos.

Part II, The Local Universe, focuses on our part of the cosmos, describing life as it is organized and exists in our Local Universe. It explains the many celestial helpers who guide us in our journey inward to the center of creation, giving a detailed account of what happens to us when our life on Earth is done, as well as revealing our personal, planetary, and universe destiny.

Part III, The History of Urantia, is an extraordinarily insightful depiction of the evolution of life on Earth. It describes humanity s journey from the most primitive forms of civilization to our current situation, and reveals practical next steps to help us advance to even higher levels of existence. Dedication to the ideals of marriage and family life are revealed as critical to advancing civilization.
Eventually, the cosmic reality of the global family of all mankind will carry us on to our ultimate goal of planetary progress. The details and significance of Adam and Eve and Melchizedek further complete our historical knowledge. The presentation of the Divine Spark of God that lives within each individual is one of the major concepts presented.

Part IV, The Life and Teachings of Jesus, lifts Jesus out of the context of the Christian religion and portrays his life and teachings in a way that is inspiring to people of all faiths and all walks of life. This includes a profoundly moving account of Jesus' life in chronological order from birth, through childhood, adolescence, adult years (including his private and public ministries), and eventual death and resurrection.

Readers of The Urantia Book commonly experience profound transformation, and an uplifting desire to grow in spirit and grace, to actually live in partnership with God.
 
From the Inside Flap

"There is in the mind of God a plan which embraces every creature of all his vast domains, and this plan is an eternal purpose of boundless opportunity, unlimited progress, and endless life. And the infinite treasures of such a matchless career are yours for the striving!" (The Urantia Book, p. 312)

The Urantia Book presents comprehensive answers to age-old questions about the nature and personality of God, the life and teachings of Jesus, the relationship between science and religion, spiritual living, and much more. It describes a near infinite universe containing millions of inhabited worlds similar to Urantia (the universe name of our planet earth), each lovingly fostered by a vast host of celestial personalities.

The Urantia Book reveals God as our loving Parent, one who cherishes each of us with an affection that surpasses human understanding. God’s spirit indwells us, inspiring us with intelligent faith as we face the manifold problems of earthly existence. After this life, we continue our spiritual ascent until, in the far-distant future, our perfected souls find God in person on Paradise.

Is the Urantia Book a revelation?

Almost nothing is known about how The Urantia Book came to be written. What can be said is that it presents a philosophy of spiritual living that integrates and unifies all aspects of human existence to a degree far exceeding anything previously available. Thousands upon thousands of individuals have concluded that its qualities of thought and expression are beyond the power of human invention.
 
Decide for yourself whether The Urantia Book is a genuine revelation, as it claims, or merely an inspired work of fiction. Whatever you conclude, this account of the history of the universe, the evolution of humankind, and God’s plan for our eternal careers is likely to transform your life and your understanding of the world around you.

"What a mistake to dream of God far off in the skies when the spirit of the Universal Father lives within your own mind!" (The Urantia Book, p. 55)

  1. Only for the serious student 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Sep 2011

    This book is a bit intimidating in that the concepts are far-reaching and for the most part unknown to even those who may consider themselves advanced and of 'new thought' generation.
    Be prepared for study into multi-level universes and hierarchy with references to Paradise and the Paradise Sons. As well as about one third of the book being devoted to an indepth study of Jesus’s life and teachings.
    I have read the Keys of Enoch by JJ Hurtak and I can tell you that the Keys was a walk in the park compared to the depth of Urantia.
