If you have just learned of the book, the Introduction section will give you a basic overview, as well as sources of further study.
Although The Urantia Book is a divine gift to this world, no new religious tradition has been established in its name. Its teachings are for all people. In fact, The Urantia Book reveals information that goes far beyond anything that has come before it. It is possible for The Urantia Book's teachings to enliven and regenerate many of the world's existing spiritual traditions.
