Without a doubt, the most important book in print today!,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Urantia Book (Hardcover)
Doubt its' source, question its' Truth, be sceptical, or even mock it, but read it. Cover to cover.
Merges the belief systems of humanity, no matter what one's background is: Jew, Christian, Doukhobor, Materialist, Athiest or Agnostic. See p 1130: "While your religion is a matter of personal experience, it is most important that you should be exposed to the knowledge of a vast number of other religious experineces to the end that you may prevent your religious life from becoming egocentric..."
You want simplicity? Buy a colouring book or read a romantic novel. Not that it is completely complicated, a good portion is elusive.
This book does not offer itself as complete, nor The final source. It is but a step along the path of eternal growth in knowledge. Be prepared to re-read it.
A few words of caution on the last 1/3 of the book. This section is about the intimate and personal experience of Jesus' life here on earth. It may provide a depth of insight about the way many people think that you had never expected, and you could wind up much more connected to everyone on earth!
After reading this book it will be easier to accept the lack of uniformity of thought among the people of earth, and easier also to see the spirit essense that binds us and makes all men equal.
