About the Urantia Book


Introduction

The Urantia Book is compelling reading and evolves into an extremely personal piece of literature. This book is a volume of over two thousand beautifully bound pages of fine rice paper, truly a book to last for a lifetime of constant use. When the papers were completed in 1934 a group of dedicated people spent nearly 20 years getting them into print. They formed a non-profit foundation just for that one purpose. The Urantia Book is listed in the United States library of Congress and has been translated into many languages. The Urantia Foundation is dedicated to the purpose of making this magnificent book available to everyone. 

The book is about religion, the love of God, relationship with your fellow man, and advocates a good-humored attitude toward life.

It tells you where you came from, what you are doing here, where you going, and how to get there.

It delves into nearly all of the sciences existing before 1934 and is an education in itself.

The book is crammed with gems of philosophy, pearls of wisdom, and unassailable truths.

It answers truthfully, clearly, precisely, and logically almost every question you have ever wanted to ask, generating ethusiasm and creative speculation while at the same time warning against fanaticism advising you to keep an open mind at all times.



A Brief Description of The Urantia Book


The Urantia Book
, first published by the Urantia Foundation in 1955, was authored by a revelatory commission of authors as a comprising information from human and universe personalities for the benefit of the people of our world, Urantia.

The book's message is that all human beings are one family, the sons and daughters of one God, the Universal Father. It instructs on the genesis, history, and destiny of mankind and on our relationship with God. It also presents a unique and compelling portrayal of the life and teachings of Jesus, opening new vistas of time and eternity, and revealing new concepts of Man's ever-ascending adventure of finding the Universal Father in our friendly and carefully administered universe.

The Urantia Book's view of science, philosophy, and religion is perhaps the clearest and most concise integration of these subjects available to contemporary man. There is little question among the over 400,000 people who have purchased, read, and who study the Book: The Urantia Book has the capacity to make a significant contribution to the religious and philosophical thinking of all peoples; it truly has the potential to shape world destiny.

Over and over, people from around the world have discovered that the Book has profoundly impressed and changed their lives - inspired and stimulated them to reach new levels of spiritual growth and enhanced living.

While almost every generation produces a number of people who pose as the bearers of a 'new revelation,' it is surprising that The Urantia Book does not advocate a new organised religion. Its viewpoint builds upon the religious heritages of the past and present, encouraging a personal, living religion based on faith and service to one's fellows.

Where Did The Urantia Book Come From?


In the early 20th century, a physician practicing in Chicago became the head of a group known as the Contact Commission. This small group was the focal point for the production of, and the primary custodian for, the final text of The Urantia Book. They were sworn not to disclose details about the transactions in order to preclude future generations from venerating the participants. It was considered important that no individual might be exalted through their association with The Urantia Book. Because of its revelatory nature, the book stands on its own merit, nature and content.

As the contents of The Urantia Book were being transcribed, the Urantia Papers were read to, and questions were requested from "The Forum," a group that had been meeting regularly for discussions at the doctor's house. The answers to these questions were then incorporated into the papers. These early readers formed the first core group of believers in the revelation and became committed to the mission of bringing the teachings of The Urantia Book to all of mankind.


What People Are Saying About The Urantia Book


"I have been reading The Urantia Book over the last 27 years and as I am transformed through the marvellous process of 'sacred' evolution I am still constantly amazed by the multi-dimensional richness that stimulates my thought processes via this wonderful revelation of creator and creation, The Urantia Book.

151:4.6 "Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a sweep net which was cast into the sea, and it gathered up every kind of fish. Now, when the net was filled, the fishermen drew it up on the beach, where they sat down and sorted out the fish, gathering the good into vessels while the bad they threw away."
