From the Publisher

Love
Love is truly contagious and eternally creative. (p. 2018) “Devote your life to proving that love is the greatest thing in the world.” (p. 2047) “Love is the ancestor of all spiritual goodness, the essence of the true and the beautiful.” (p. 2047) The Father’s love can become real to mortal man only by passing through that man’s personality as he in turn bestows this love upon his fellows. (p. 1289) The secret of a better civilization is bound up in the Master’s teachings of the brotherhood of man, the good will of love and mutual trust. (p. 2065)

Prayer
Prayer is not a technique of escape from conflict but rather a stimulus to growth in the very face of conflict. (p. 1002) The sincerity of any prayer is the assurance of its being heard. ... (p. 1639) God answers man’s prayer by giving him an increased revelation of truth, an enhanced appreciation of beauty, and an augmented concept of goodness. (p. 1002) ...Never forget that the sincere prayer of faith is a mighty force for the promotion of personal happiness, individual self-control, social harmony, moral progress, and spiritual attainment. (p. 999)

Suffering
There is a great and glorious purpose in the march of the universes through space. All of your mortal struggling is not in vain. (p. 364) Mortals only learn wisdom by experiencing tribulation. (p. 556)

Angels
The angels of all orders are distinct personalities and are highly individualized. (p. 285) Angels....are fully cognizant of your moral struggles and spiritual difficulties. They love human beings, and only good can result from your efforts to understand and love them. (p. 419)

Our Divine Destiny
If you are a willing learner, if you want to attain spirit levels and reach divine heights, if you sincerely desire to reach the eternal goal, then the divine Spirit will gently and lovingly lead you along the pathway of sonship and spiritual progress. (p. 381) ...They who know that God is enthroned in the human heart are destined to become like him€”immortal. (p. 1449) God is not only the determiner of destiny; he is man’s eternal destination.

Faith
...Faith will expand the mind, ennoble the soul, reinforce the personality, augment the happiness, deepen the spirit perception, and enhance the power to love and be loved. (p. 1766) “Now, mistake not, my Father will ever respond to the faintest flicker of faith.” (p. 1733)

History/Science
The story of man’s ascent from seaweed to the lordship of earthly creation is indeed a romance of biologic struggle and mind survival. (p. 731) 2,500,000,000 years ago...

The Urantia Book: Revealing the Mysteries of God, the Universe, Jesus, and Ourselves 4.5 out of 5 based on 1 ratings. 36 reviews.

I must be the most skeptical person I know, and yet after reading the Urantia Book, I find it is not simply a book one reads and makes a judgement on. Rather, this is a great text and reference book that covers broad spectrums that include God, science, pure religion, civilization, philosophy, history, astro-physics, morality, and perhaps the most important answers to my life-long questions: Why am I here and where am I going? The URANTIA Book is the most comprehensive and informative book I have ever read. It contains no elements of doubt---no, not one.

The Urantia Book is most likely the greatest book coming out of the 20th century. Although the vast science and cosmology and even history may seem out of date and antiquated, the spiritual truths, corroborating the bible and other spiritual works, are the most advanced ever seen today. They match the attitude that there is a loving universe setup with a plan for us; that there is a loving Father/God who has a great enterprise spanning many universes and ages of time and even then, He indwells all of us here on earth. But, the greatest Spiritual Truth is the entire fourth section of the Book, chronicling the entire life and teachings of the Greatest Human who ever walked on this planet and the Creator of our universe, Joshua Ben Joseph aka Christ Michael aka Jesus of Nazereth.

An exceptional biography of Christ's life. Challenge your knowledge of the gospel and attempt to disprove this theorem.

When I was younger, I became very disillusioned with the answers to certain cosmic mysteries given to me by my parents and the priests at the Catholic school where I attended. Among the questions I asked were those pertaining to the many inconsistencies I noticed in the bible, like if Adam and Eve were the first two human beings and Cain and Able were there first born children, when Cain slew Able, how could he go to the land of Nod and take a wife? I thought there were only four people on the planet at that time! Most of the answers I received for this and other questions was, "It's a mystery of faith." Surely, I figured, there must be answers that make sense. The Urantia Book is the only book that gave me ALL the answers I was looking for. It clearly explained where I came from, why I'm here, where I'm going, and MORE. In addition, the section on the life and teachings of Jesus gave me a loving affection and understanding of one of the greatest men to ever walk the earth, far beyond the meager interpretations of his teachings in the bible. If this review resonates with you, don't hesitate. Buy it now, and read it starting with anything in the table of contents that is of interest to you.

The Urantia Book is a remarkable source of information, which like a precious stone shines in a special way which might suggest that is has equally special proprieties. Still I firmly reject opinions saying: This is THE BOOK or that is THE TRUTH everyone has been looking for! If the stone should be harder than diamante, then test it. If it shines more that other stones, show it around, ask how other perceive its brilliance. You will at least then notice that truth is considered in different ways by different people. Meaning that YOU have - fully and to its right value - understood the Book , is a way to say that you are not looking for another truth anymore. Wouldn¿t that be foolish? I think this would suggest a sort of misunderstanding of this truth people want to refer themselves to. But I would approve for everyone who likes The Urantia Book (or at least the last part) to read it several times to try to understand it in a more and more personal way. I think then, with testing and trough experience it will unfold some of its special truth to you in a special way as it happens all so often every day if we are attentive enough.

The Urantia Book is a collection of revealed knowledge that pertains to every aspect of contemporary life. It does not diminish our understanding of religion and the history of this planet; it only adds to it. Essential reading for all enlightened minds.

This is the most enlighting compilation of papers I have ever seen published in my life. By far the most important and interesting book I have ever read.

Never before has a book been so conclusive in it's findings / Revelations. What also amazes me is how the book is not bound to any one established religion. The Urantia book includes all, and is for all. It confirms every thought I've ever had reguarding God and existance.

It's depth immeasurable.It's spiritual, philosophic and cosmic insight uterly astonishing. It was when I approached the day of the crusifixion and balled like a baby that i knew the Urantia book had indeed touched me deeply.

Answered some questions that I had about Jesus' life. Such as why did Jesus say, 'My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?' when he was on the cross. You got to read it to believe it.

I've had this book by my bedside for the last 28 years and I continue to reread our fascinating cosmic history. It has been a life-long inspiration. The section on Jesus is simply the most descriptive record of his life and times and helps one understand how one man/god influenced human history to this day.

I have read many books on religion and spirituality and nothing comes close to The Urantia Book. It is quite simply the greatest book ever published. It is a complete description of the central and superuniverses, the local universe, the history of earth and an inspiring account of the real life and true teachings of Jesus. I hope that everyone who reads this will have something like the thrilling experience it gave me.

I had no idea what I was getting into when I finally decided to read this book. My son told me about it 3 years ago. I started at the beginning and found my head spinning with new terminology and descriptions of a Universe I had never heard before. Quite honestly it made my head spin but I also found it intriguing and compelling. After the first 10 papers I decided to do some internet research and found some graphics that helped me understand what I was reading. This helped considerably. I then chose to read Part IV about the life of Jesus, thinking I knew more about that and would find the reading easier. In this section I could not put the book down! Not only did I NOT know much about the real life of Jesus but it was fascinating and amazing and made more sense to me than anything I had ever read or heard before. At this point I have still not decided if I believe this book to be Truth or fiction but I am definitely going to continue reading. There are so many life affirming words of love and wisdom that it deserves much more study. I believe any Truth seeker will want to invest some time reading The Urantia Book.
