The Urantia Book

7 posts in this topic

I've been reading several religious texts in recent years and during my research online, I stumbled across this book. I have not read it yet or purchased a copy so I will not say too much about it though there is A LOT one can say about this book.

The book is about 2000 pages long, the author/authors are anonymous, there is an interesting story of how the book was written and the book covers a wide range of topics including science and religion. At first the idea of a massive tome was daunting, but after thinking about it I realized how much I could learn from reading it and giving me more than a year of fascinating reading material!

The book is said to be a divine revelation and has its believers but there is no religion built around it and there are no people going around trying to impose their belief in the book on others. The bright blue cover is also aesthetically pleasing. I've heard how this book draws people in or how this book 'finds you'. I can completely agree with this.

Has anyone here read this book?

The story regarding its initial publications and author(s) was really interesting, but the portions I read that were available online somewhere - it's been awhile, I cannot remember the resource - were bizarre and lost my interest rapidly. It's definitely worth reading the Wikipedia article and a couple oddballs praising it on their blogs, if not the thing itself. What do you mean, you completely agree? The book found you, or it drew you in?

I'm just interested in religion in general although I am not religious. I also love reading.

A bright blue book with over 2000 pages claimed to be divine revelation with the author being anonymous. When I say it finds me and draws me in, I mean the book being what it is, one cannot help but pick it up and read it. 

The book is available online to read for free, but I'm going to purchase the book on Amazon because I prefer paper.
