The Urantia Book
English Indexed Version - Paperback - Uversa Press
Reviews from Amazon
The only fully indexed edition available. Integrating the highest concepts of spirituality, science, philosophy, and history, this book was
written to lead readers to higher levels of individual and collective spiritual living. Not a text included for any one religion, this guide
correlates the cultural common ground of Judaism, Christianity, Islam, and all Eastern religions. Included are four sections: The first two deal with
the structure of the universe, the third retells the history of Earth, and the fourth offers a detailed description of the life of Christ. The Urantia
Book offers religion as an all-embracing philosophy of living and opportunity for spiritual growth and perfection.
The Best Story of
Jesus Anywhere, September 9, 2003
Reviewer: A reader from Boulder, CO United States
This book contains the best biography of Jesus
ever written. If you love Jesus and long to know more about him, you will love this book.
This edition is the only edition in print to
include a comprehensive index making it easy to find favorite passages and explore topics of interest. Separately published Urantia Book indexes start
at $19.95 and are not as good as the one that comes with this book. It's like getting two books for the price of one.

Reviewer: A reader from Hillsboro, OR United States
Finished around 1934 but not published until 1955, the
Urantia book has a depth and clarity that is sometimes missing from our traditional books of revelation. It must be remembered that the authors claim
to use as many existing words and concepts as possible (1930's) and yet I find it to be consistent with such newer material as The Seth Books and
others. It emphasises the Judeo-Christian tradition and at times it may seem to be a bit "conservative" but it clarifies many of the "distortions"
that arose in the Christian faith after the time of Jesus. Its a bit like a cool old dictionary or encyclopedia---a great reference book for
evaluating other, newer stuff. It emphasises the highest ideals of humanity. Everyone should at least be familiar with it and read it with an open
heart before forming an opinion.
Helpful Index, March 31, 2004
Reviewer: Leola (Lee) Loots from San Francisco Bay Area, CA
An earlier reviewer referred to the text as "God given," and I agree. One feels gifted by God in the reading of this book,
something I can still say after 30 years of making this cherished text my companion. Many who are spiritually alive (or seeking to be so) will find
their inner "truth resonators" vibrating soundly when they read this text, no matter which edition they read. A beautiful quality of this book is that
no one needs to "tell" you if it is true or not. You will recognize its truth on a soul level, or not.
The same reviewer, however,
referred to this text as "stolen" from the Foundation, the group which performed the valuable task of putting these revelatory pages into book form.
With this, I disagree. Foundation members sought a copyright on this text, but their efforts legally failed. Many (who were equally sincere) disagreed
with the Foundation's methods of distribution, and were relieved by the suit outcome so that distribution could be managed more freely, including the
creation of translations.
The fact is that this text was given to all of humanity for the benefit of all of humanity. It is a text which
has the potential to change lives, and even nations, if sincerely applied. Book distribution by both publishers is a sincere act of service toward all
those who have "eyes to see and ears to hear" what these pages have to offer. A unique aspect of these two publishers is that no one is looking to
earn profit from making these books available. As non-profits, they are run by those who wish to be of service to all, and therefore any proceeds are
funneled back into making the book widely available. It is exciting that people from many nations are now clamoring for translations of the book into
their own languages.
Serious students of the book will find that the index included with this version is invaluable. This is the first
time that the index and the text have expediently appeared in one volume. Furthermore, this index is more versatile in its cross-referencing than any
earlier indexes which had been published separately. Curious browsers will likewise appreciate that the index allows topics of particular interest to
be quickly located. All in all, this publication is more user friendly than prior editions.
However, the particular edition is not nearly
as important as the content, which is the same in all editions. As a general resource, this text uplifts the paths of religionists from many
perspectives. Its contents are not designed to promote or start a new religion, but rather are intended to support one's search for a life of
transcendent meaning (including a personal connection to our Creator). No matter which edition is preferred, this profound book needs to be discovered
(and likely will be) by those who are hungry for spiritual liberation
New Features, February 26, 2004
Reviewer: Lenny Cowles
from Nederland, CO
As a long time student of the Urantia papers, this new edition published by Uversa Press is a welcome addition. Both
publishers (The Foundation and The Uversa Press) have maintained the highest standards possible in remaining true to the original text. The only
significant difference between these publications is in the formatting and referencing. This new edition by The Uversa Press is printed with two
columns for easier reading. More importantly, this edition includes the long awaited and much needed INDEX to the Urantia papers. Now readers can
easily search the papers by Word, Name or Topic. In addition, the text is now numbered by Chapter, Section and Paragraph for faster referencing. And
for scholars, an Appendix has been included citing word or punctuation modification from the original 1955 text to this new edition.
