This work is an abridgment of the 2097-page Urantia Book. It answers the questions:
Where do we come from?
Why are we here?
Where are we going?
No book offers such a comprehensive and detailed set of answers as the Urantia Book, a revelation of truth first published in 1955 and now available worldwide in several languages. But its size and complexity have delayed the widespread discovery of its uplifting and empowering teachings. Dr. Sprunger's abridgment contains all the major concepts and captures the essential teachings of the 2097-page original, and closely follows the bookís format and wording. It has has been written to introduce a wider audience to the teachings of the Urantia Book, paving the way for the study of the original text.
