A History of The Urantia Papers     

by Larry Mullins
with Dr. Meredith Sprunger

The unauthorized, untold story of what may have been the most important happening of the twentieth century.

WE HAVE BEEN TOLD by the mainstream media that if science were to discover that intelligent life exists somewhere else in the universe, it would radically change our way of thinking, from top to bottom. Imagine, then, if it were proven that, circa 1906 to 1955, invisible super-intelligent beings collaborated with a small group of humans for the purpose of bringing a revelation of epochal significance to our planet! However, the miraculous materialization of the Urantia Papers can never be proven. And perhaps the superhuman revelators who were involved wanted it just that way. They knew that one of the least desirable reasons to believe anything is because of some supposed supernormal origin. The Urantia Papers were always intended to stand upon their own merits. Their origin was to remain a spiritual mystery, and belief in their authenticity a matter of faith. Somehow, due to indiscretions by a few members of the human contact commission, it didn't work out that way...

Other comments:

Sandra Collins SLIS, Univ. of Pittsburgh, wrote in a Library Journal:  "Given the lack of scholarly distance from the subject, the patronizing tone and the gross editorializing, it would be difficult to recommend this book to any library."  

Sarah Levis, a lecturer of the Univ. of Wales, said about Gardner’s book: "His research is worth noting, although his position as a great skeptic does not allow his conclusions much academic credibility."  

  


 

The Invention of Sacred Tradition published by Cambridge University Press of the United Kingdom. is an anthology that includes a serious study of the origin and nature of The Urantia Book. The author of the chapter titled: The peculiar sleep; receiving the Urantia Book, is Sarah Lewis. Professor Lewis draws freely from many Urantia related sources for her commentary. In the section on authorship, she refers to a statistical analysis study by Ken Glasziou. This analysis concluded that a minimum of nine authors were involved with authoringThe Urantia Book. Glasziou applied his analysis to Dr. Sadler’s numerous books, and determined that Sadler was not one of the authors of the Urantia Papers.

MAPS


 

Maps for a Study of Jesus’ Life 

For the background on how the maps were developed:

See Introduction to the Map series  

Then click on The Map of First Century Palestine (hopefully it is loading ok)

This map shows first century Roman roads, caravan routes and geographic locations referenced in the Urantia Papers.

There are several problems in constructing such a map. These include:

  • ambiguity as to the exact location of some of the sections of first century Roman roads, multiple name changes for towns and villages over the past 2,000 years,
  • multiple towns and villages which have the same name,
  • disputed sites,
  • climatic and geologic changes which even in a short 2,000 years have changed the run of rivers and streams,
  • changes in the location of springs and shifting regions of forestation and aridity.

When a question existed, the German Tubingen data (most recent) was used.
