The Urantia Book – A General Perspective

Many of us in this troubled world desire to make a difference—to help and to heal. But from where comes such a desire? How do we get to that place where we become truly interested in each other? How does this interest become friendship, and ripen into Love? If we can answer this, we have found the key; for once we love someone, the desire wells up to help and to heal.

But from where comes this desire to love one another? It appears naturally among family and friends; it builds between neighbours who work together; and it begins between strangers once trust is won. And why is Love so powerful, so efficient at resolving the knots in our relationships? To understand this we need to know more about what and who we are.

The Urantia Book offers enlightened answers to these old questions. As well as providing a larger frame in which to think—one that may satisfy scientists, philosophers and religionists alike—the Urantia Papers reveal a fresh perspective on Personality. They trace for us the rise and role of Love, from the eternal core of the Absolute directly into the human heart. 

The Urantia Book, first published by Urantia Foundation in 1955, is the latest in a series of revelations of truth to our world. It provides in­tensely moving insights that could transform humanity and inspire all peoples.

The central message is that all human beings are one family, the sons and daughters of one God, the Universal Father. The authors instruct us on the origin, history, and destiny of mankind and on our relationship with God. They also present a unique and compelling portrayal of the life and teachings of Jesus, open new vistas of time and eternity, and reveal new concepts of mankind’s ever-ascending adventure of finding the Universal Father in our friendly and carefully administered universe.
