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
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.
In the dynamic equilibrium of life's exfolding with
sublime uncertainty reflecting through the Faith sons and
daugthers, I am one of the many who stand within the
