Quietly, with little fanfare, this mysterious and thought-provoking book came about more than half a century ago — a book about life's purpose. Reviews from

"Both otherworldly and down to earth, both simple and sophisticated, both soothing and shaking... I can describe it using a thousand words and still not begin to describe it. There is nothing like it in print, that's for sure."

"A monumental piece of work that clearly was meticulously crafted."

"I most appreciate the wisdom in this book, both in quantity and quality, I have not read anything that even comes close."

"If you have been searching for inspiration, this book is alive."

"Best book on the planet — and has satisfied my every question."

(After 20 years on Amazon and a combined 900+ written reviews, 4.5 out of 5 stars.)

No person is credited as the author. How did this strange but relentlessly detailed and expansive book come to be written? Is it wisdom literature or sci-fi? In methodical prose, it lays out an epic story that has intrigued many people who have come across it.

The application includes:
- Full unabridged book in six languages (no network access needed to use, all is installed on your iPhone / iPad / iPod)
- Powerful search engine custom-designed for the book
- Random quotes feature with thousands of quotes
- Sharing through social media, text messaging, and email
- Text to speech - let the app read the book to you
- Bilingual support to show two languages side-by-side at the same time. Text-to-speech is also fully supported in bilingual mode for each language.

- Reference numbers in the text optionally can be switched on, with multiple types of reference numbers to choose from.
- Page numbers for the English text that match the pagination of the most popular print edition (pages 1 - 2,097).
- Bookmarks
- History

- While reading, a bookmark is added by double-tapping on the navigation bar title (for instance, "Paper 160" in the screenshots you can see here on the App Store). Bookmarks can also be added using the History rows. Tap the blue star on the right side of a History row to bookmark that location.
- By triple-tapping on a navigation bar title, you can conveniently switch night mode on and off. This also works in the Quotes section of the app.
- A helpful tip while reading quotes: simply double-tap each quote to get a new one. This is especially useful on devices with larger screens as an alternative to reaching for the "New" button.

The book is free to read. For app requests and comments, please send them to Enjoy.

What’s New

Version 2.0.0

Version 2.0.0 of the app is the most significant release in the app's 10-year history. Updates include:

- Search feature (3+ years in the making) – read about it inside the app for all the details.
- The app's code base was fully rewritten from scratch to modernize it. The look and feel of the app remains the same, but under the hood, it's much easier to maintain for the future. One visible improvement is that browsing through the book by swiping backward and forward is much improved. All levels of the book can be navigated this way, give it a try. Another improvement is that history and bookmark rows can be swiped to be deleted.
- Text sharing is updated for iOS 11 and is handled through share sheets now, giving more diverse sharing possibilities, depending on what other apps you have installed.
- New optimizations are in place so the app is faster and needs less space on your device.
- iPhone X and iPad Pro are fully supported. While the app could be used on these devices before, it previously didn't look right in some places due to not adjusting correctly to the screen sizes.

En bok for de som er tørste på å forstå universet og historien på vår planet; Urantia

En fantastisk bok!! Den har vært med på å forandre livet mitt. Bare les gjennom kapitteloverskriftene og se om noe fanger din interesse, begynn og les så føler du om det er skrevet av mennesker eller noe høyere guddommelig vesen.

I følge boken er planeten Jorda «Urantia» i karantene fra Gud! Det er beskrevet at mennesker har gjort opprør mot Gud tidligere, så vi mistet all trafikken til planeten og Urantia ble disconnecta fra universet. Vi har fri vilje. Hvis vi vil ha Gud tilbake så du først ønske det, så jobbe med å komme nærmere ditt higher self for å komme nærmere Gud.

Jeg leste blant annet fortellingen om hvordan engler kan transportere personligheten din til et sted etter døden, og hvilke utrolige mengder av opplevelser og erfaringer man kan leve seg gjennom der, før man blir fraktet videre oppover i det himmelske system og fortsetter reisen mot paradis.

Det står også at universet vårt heter Nebadon og det er så lite som en stjerne i en galakse av galakser. De som har godkjent denne informasjonen for tilgjengeliggjøring til oss er i følge boka en kommisjon fra hovedstaden i det ultimate universet av univers «Havona»som ligger inni den største klynga av superuniverser.

Denne boken gir meg ro i sjela. Hvis den er forfattet av mennesker så er det utrolig bra jobba og den burde leses uansett.
