An Introduction to the Urantia
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 the headquarters of a
trillion inhabited worlds. This revelation, in
book form, is 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. The last 800
pages are undoubtedly the most sublimely beautiful
account of Jesus’ life and teachings ever told.
Part One, The Central And Super Universe, deals
with God “the first source and center of all things
and beings” in a vast creation. It reveals as never
before, the Creator’s loving nature and relationship
to the part and whole of creation. It offers a
deeper understanding of both the spiritual and
physical organization of the Universe of Universes.
Part Two, 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 when our life on Earth is
done, as well as revealing our personal, planetary,
and universe destiny.
Part Three, 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 Four, 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.
