Synopsis:

This priceless and inexhaustible resource is the ultimate synthesis of science, philosophy and truth, of reason, wisdom and faith, and of past, present and future.

Synopsis:

First published in 1955 by the Urantia Foundation, The Urantia Book was written in the form of a revelation from celestial beings. The writers refer to Earth as "Urantia" and state their intent to "present enlarged concepts and advanced truth" as a pathway to expanded cosmic consciousness and enhanced spiritual perception. The book became a cause célèbre worldwide for its persuasiveness and its wide reach, covering everything from the genesis, history, and destiny of the human race to our collective and individual relationships with God. The Urantia Book proposes a consistent and compelling integration of scientific, philosophic, and religious thought. Building on the world's religious heritage, it describes a sublime destiny for humankind, encouraging a personal, living religious faith as the key to individual spiritual progress. A detailed biography of Jesus recasts the leading figure of Christianity as a guide for seekers of all faiths. This edition has been thoroughly reviewed and corrected by the Trustees of Urantia Foundation.

Excerpts

God , …God is the source and destiny of all that is good and beautiful and true. (p. 1431) If you truly want to find God, that desire is in itself evidence that you have already found him. (p. 1440) When man goes in partnership with God, great things may, and do, happen. (p. 1467)

(p. 365) This new gospel of the kingdom… presents a new and exalted goal of destiny, a supreme life purpose. (p. 1778)
