What is The Urantia Book?

The Urantia Book is a revelation of truth for our world from higher beings in the universe. Its teachings blend science, philosophy, history, cosmology and religion seamlessly into a big picture revealing our origin, our purpose, and our divine and eternal destiny, "the agelong process from animal to angel, from angel to spirit, from spirit to God." The Urantia Book, page 558

The teachings include information on the composition, organization, administration, and personalities of the cosmos; the history of our planet; our continuing spiritual evolution; a new view of reality by explaining the concepts of personality, mind, and soul; the evolutionary experience of our progression towards God in partnership with God's spirit in our minds; and lastly, a new and enlarged account of the life and teachings of Jesus.

Who Wrote It?

Oral tradition holds that the book was received from superhuman revelators working through a human contact personality. This information, assembled into 196 papers over a 20-year period, resulted in The Urantia Book. Dr. William S. Sadler, a Chicago psychiatrist, was the custodian of the material although the identity of the contact personality was never identified. In the appendix to his book, Mind at Mischief, Dr. Sadler stated that the information imparted from this source was always "consistent within itself" and "in a class by itself."

When was it published?

The Urantia Book was originally published in 1955 by Urantia Foundation, in Chicago. Urantia Foundation continues to publish The Urantia Book although it is now in public domain and offered through multiple publishers. Over 700,000 copies of The Urantia Book are in print in the English language, and translations are available in French, Spanish, Finnish, Russian, Dutch, Italian, Portuguese, German, and Korean. Additional translations are underway and available online.
