After listening to Part 1 and Part 2 of The Urantia Book, listening to Part 3 makes you feel like an astronaut returning to earth from a long space voyage. Part 3 depicts the history of life on earth since its origin more than four-and-one-half billion years ago. It traces the story of human existence from the birth of the first two human beings nearly 993,500 years ago.
Beyond explaining our physical evolution, Part 3 describes the development of civilization, industry, government, religion, and family life. The records of human tribulation and progress indicate that we are moving toward a better world.
Highlights from Part 3 include: A scientific explanation of the origin of our solar system and our world; the stages of a divinely guided evolutionary process; the ages of fishes, birds, dinosaurs, and primates; how and why human life evolved on earth; the story of the first two human beings; the triumphs and tragedies of Adam and Eve; Abraham, Moses, Van, Lao-tse, Confucius, Ikhnaton, and other heroes of planetary history; the rise and fall of ancient civilizations; the bleak years of the Lucifer rebellion; the evolution of government and the path to world peace; principles for successful marriages and good families; how personal religion brings you lasting happiness; how the indwelling Spirit of God works to ensure your eternal survival; how to pray and worship more effectively; and how to overcome evil and suffering.
Unlikely but if you've never heard this book you should pick it up now. Most likely you know of this book, and the audio is great! By far the best audiobook version.
