Fascinating -But I don't believe a word of it. Religious ( )

If you can handle 2000 plus pages of how the entire Universe works then jump in! ( )

In my honest opinion, of all the religous, spiritual and new age books out there, this is positively the most comprehensive, engross-ing, and all-encompasing book of our time. The Urantia Book will undoubtedly change humanity and your nature and style of living for the better! I would suggest starting with The Jesus Papers as that is the most treasured and familiar part of this book. This section of the book will make you fall in love with the Jesus you learned about in the Bible.
The beauty of this book is that it combines the nature of religion and science into REALITY. It does not pit science against religion or vice versa. It also does not directly contradict any religions. In fact it gives people a greater appreciation and understanding for whatever religion they may be in! In addition to that, this book will give you an incredible understanding of the universe, where you are going, where you came from, and hundreds of other BIG questions that WILL be answered! This is the Fifth Revelation of God to Man.those who wish to degrade this book, that is mainly because they are comfortable and secure with the Bible, Koran, etc., and are not comfortable with change or dynamism. But for those of you who feel as though you need more, and are willing to broaden your per-spective of the nature of God, Man, and your role in the Universe, this book is the beginning of an enthralling, exciting, epic, and ever-lasting journey to ultimately find God and be like him!!!

I don't like to poke fun at texts that others find spiritual or enlightening, so I'll just say this: You could not find a better work of sci-fi/fantasy if William Gibson, Terry Pratchett, and the folks at Forgotten Realms collaborated.

It's like The Passion of The Christ and Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and Dune rolled into the Star Wars saga. I wish I were exaggerating. ( )

Book description
From the Inside Flap

Love
Love is truly contagious and eternally creative. (p. 2018) “Devote your life to proving that love is the greatest thing in the world.” (p. 2047) “Love is the ancestor of all spiritual goodness, the essence of the true and the beautiful.” (p. 2047) The Father’s love can become real to mortal man only by passing through that man’s personality as he in turn bestows this love upon his fellows. (p. 1289) The secret of a better civilization is bound up in the Master’s teachings of the brotherhood of man, the good will of love and mutual trust. (p. 2065)

Prayer
Prayer is not a technique of escape from conflict but rather a stimulus to growth in the very face of conflict. (p. 1002) The sincerity of any prayer is the assurance of its being heard. … (p. 1639) God answers man’s prayer by giving him an increased revelation of truth, an enhanced appreciation of beauty, and an augmented concept of goodness. (p. 1002) …Never forget that the sincere prayer of faith is a mighty force for the promotion of personal happiness, individual self-control, social harmony, moral progress, and spiritual attainment. (p. 999)

Suffering
There is a great and glorious purpose in the march of the universes through space. All of your mortal struggling is not in vain. (p. 364) Mortals only learn wisdom by experiencing tribulation. (p. 556)

Angels
The angels of all orders are distinct personalities and are highly individualized. (p. 285) Angels....are fully cognizant of your moral struggles and spiritual difficulties. They love human beings, and only good can result from your efforts to understand and love them. (p. 419)

Our Divine Destiny
If you are a willing learner, if you want to attain spirit levels and reach divine heights, if you sincerely desire to reach the eternal goal, then the divine Spirit will gently and lovingly lead you along the pathway of sonship and spiritual progress. (p. 381) …They who know that God is enthroned in the human heart are destined to become like him—immortal. (p. 1449) God is not only the determiner of destiny; he is man’s eternal destination. (p. 67)

Family
Almost everything of lasting value in civilization has its roots in the family. (p. 765) The family is man’s greatest purely human achievement. ... (p. 939)

Faith
…Faith will expand the mind, ennoble the soul, reinforce the personality, augment the happiness, deepen the spirit perception, and enhance the power to love and be loved. (p. 1766) “Now, mistake not, my Father will ever respond to the faintest flicker of faith.” (p. 1733)

History/Science
The story of man’s ascent from seaweed to the lordship of earthly creation is indeed a romance of biologic struggle and mind survival. (p. 731) 2,500,000,000 years ago… Urantia was a well developed sphere about one tenth its present mass. … (p. 658) 1,000,000,000 years ago is the date of the actual beginning of Urantia [Earth] history. (p. 660) 450,000,000 years ago the transition from vegetable to animal life occurred. (p. 669) From the year A.D. 1934 back to the birth of the first two human beings is just 993,419 years. (p. 707) About five hundred thousand years ago…there were almost one-half billion primitive human beings on earth. … (p. 741) Adam and Eve arrived on Urantia, from the year A.D. 1934, 37,848 years ago. (p. 828)
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

So Eleanor Roosevelt finds herself en route to France, joined by Vicky, a sexy Resistance agent, and Kevin O'Neil, the witty Irish mercenary who ultimately leads them to a small chateau in the French countryside. There the unlikely trio meets a variety of strange and colorful guests, including General Erwin Rommel. But the real mystery begins when SS Colonel Artur Brandt is found lying facedown in his bedroom, with a slug embedded in the back of his head! The year is 1941. France has fallen into the hands of Hitler's Germany. Even the most optimistic of Americans are forced to admit that our country would soon be rushing toward armed conflict with the Nazi war machine. When Eleanor Roosevelt is summoned to an urgent meeting in the Oval Office, she hardly expects that her husband will want her to engage in a covert mission to Nazi-occupied France! Yet this is exactly what Colonel William Donovan has suggested and the President wishes. A French/German resistance group is planning to assassinate Hitler, and they are requesting Eleanor Roosevelt's presence as a demonstration of the United States' commitment.… (more)
