Have you ever thought that the idea of a loving all merciful God was a great idea, but that the various religious doctrines turned you off? Have you thought that much of the contents of the Bible and Koran is just not up to scratch for today's world? And what about the other religions, Hindu, Taoism, Shinto, etc... If there were truly an omniscient, omnipresent Deity, then why would he/she put up with all the errors, and all the misguided and perverted religious prejudices that abound?

The answer is to read The Urantia Book. This is a work authored by a compilation of spiritual beings, angels if you will, who asked for and were given authorization to complete this tome of 1096 pages; a veritable feast for genuine Truth-Seekers everywhere. The exact techniques as to how these revelatory papers were commissioned and put into print has spawned another industry, but the positively overwhelming conclusion of most of those who have read and studied The Urantia Book, is that this book is an official communication from intelligent life outside our local solar system and from the planetary angels still here on Earth. Urantia is the local universe name of our planet, and Nebadon is the name of our local universe. Details of the creditable reason (i.e. The Lucifer Rebellion) are revealed as to why our world has been cut off from normal universe circuits of communication; and for how long we have been - and can further expect to remain - in quarantine.

To accept this book for what it claims to be, ie the Fifth Epochal Revelation, one has to consult one's conscience with a view to favoring the influence of the Spirit of Truth.

The Uversa Press edition of The URANTIA Book is superior to the "alternative" ones because:

a) the text is laid out in two columns, making it easier to read.

b) the paragraphs are numbered, making it easier to locate or refer to a place in the text.

c) Index

d) the list of all changes compared to 1955 first edition. The only other edition that I know of which lists these changes is my son's "English Study Edition" but it is too expensive (in printed format) for an average reader.

e) DVD with the Audio recording (in mp3 format) of the entire Urantia Book in "one section per file" format, nicely laid out in a hierarchical directory tree of papers.

Overall, excellent work --- thank you, Uversa Press!

This book is a wonderful expansive view of the reality and world we live in, it answers many questions that you are left asking after reading the Bible and many other texts of this nature. The style is good, the language is strange at first but always uplifting; at times it become difficult to understand this is when you should rest and reflect on what you have read, do not try to read too much it is a big read the first time and this is where the audio CD that is with the book is a fantastic idea. Have you ever read a book and did not know how to say that or pronounce this, well you can read word for word as the CD plays on you computer mac or pc, walkman what ever, this CD will suit all. IT is a perfect well thought through experience and gives you so much more enjoyment and understanding of Urantia which at times is full of complex ideas and levels.

Chapter IV about the life and teachings of Jesus is the reason why I got this book. Being a Christian with an open mind has meant that the agnostic texts not included in the Bible were more interesting and revealing than the interpretations offered in study in the church scene and I began to wonder why that should be the case. Now after reading Urantia a can see why I was right to keep an open mind and to feel a little short changed when reading about the teachings and message of Jesus from just the Bible.

Whilst I quite agree with those reviews I have read that say that much of the early theological discussion in this book is somewhat dense and jargonesque, and that it does not make for light, or always particularly intellectually satisfying reading, nevertheless there is a long section in this book, giving a blow by blow, and very scientific, account of the early evolution of our planet, which would be enough to justify buying it in itself. The fact that it then goes on to give the fullest account of the life of Jesus ever written, and written in a scholarly and well-researched way to boot, truly does set this book apart. It is not at all like some of these Gnostic Gospels or some of the other New Age tomes we have had on the same subject. This one is clear, readable, and its manifest and useful content is not hidden behind a long stream of Victorian or Bible-esque language designed to give it a "feeling of genuineness" without revealing anything important or pertinent. This is not merely a good book. It is an historical work, and I can truly say that I can think of many people who would benefit from reading it.

The book is a positively challanging read. As a bible reader I found the Urantia book delves deeper into explanations not readily available in the bible.
