One day at work, after a discussion of UFOs and the possibilities of extraterrestrial life, my co-worker suggested that I read The Urantia Book, saying I would find it "interesting." I bought a copy, opened it and read just a little. My eyes grew big and my brain caught fire, and I couldn't put it down until I had read the whole thing.
About a year later, I was listening to my favorite radio talk show about UFOs and the like, and a caller mentioned The Urantia Book. The host inquired, "Have you read the whole thing?" When the caller said, No, I haven't," the host put out the question, "If there is anybody out there who has read the whole thing, please give me a call."
I called, thinking myself to be probably the only other person in the world who knew anything about it. I was invited to be a guest on his show and fielded questions from callers for about three hours, only to discover that there were other readers and study groups. That was in 1983 I still read the book daily and go to the study groups. The Urantia Book has changed my life in ways I never could have imagined. Thank you, Father!
