This group is dedicated to the exploration of the teachings of the Urantia Book --- geared towards new readers or the simply curious, but experienced readers are always welcome.
The Urantia Book or "UB" was published in 1955 and contains religion, philosophy, world history, and science.
It contains a strong interfaith spiritual philosophy that embraces the truth in all of the world's religions; in other words, there is no one path to the infinite God.
At the same time, the UB embraces the evolutionary perspective of modern science --- that "animal evolution" was part of God's purpose and plan; to evolve creatures who could eventually know God, have morality, and build civilization.
In addition, it contains an extraordinary narrative on the life of Jesus, including his childhood years, which makes up at least a quarter of the Urantia Book.
The book can be read for free from on the internet... the main readership sites are urantia.org and urantiabook.org.
"There is in the mind of God a plan which embraces every creature of all his vast domains, and this plan is an eternal purpose of boundless opportunity, unlimited progress, and endless life. And the infinite treasures of such a matchless career are yours for the striving!" -The Urantia Book
"The many religions of Urantia[Earth] are all good to the extent that they bring man to God and bring the realization of the Father to man. It is a fallacy for any group of religionists to conceive of their creed as The Truth;such attitudes bespeak more of theological arrogance than of certainty of faith." -The Urantia Book
