    "Amazing biography of Jesus"

    Thanks for putting The Urantia Book on Audible. The readers do a terrific job so the book is good listening. Since the Urantia Book uses modern English and narrative storytelling, it is much easier to get through than most religious literature. I downloaded the compressed file level 2 so the book did not take up too much room on my IPod.

    I loved listening to Part 4 of The Urantia Book. The first hour was tough to understand because it related to Part 2 of the book. But once I got to the chapter on the birth and infancy of Jesus, it was easy listening the rest of the way. Wow, this book takes a really different look at the life of Jesus. Best I have read so far. It recounts his complete life and teachings. Before reading The Urantia Book, I loved the story of Jesus in the New Testament, but felt disappointed that it only covered 20% of his chronological life. I wanted to know his entire life story, complete with all the missing years. Bingo, The Urantia Book tells about his childhood, teenage years, life in his Twenties, and his entire public ministry. They detail the death of his father Joseph, his 19 months of travel in the Mediterranean region with two East Indians, his year journey as a camel caravan conductor going from Nazareth to the Caspian Sea, and his preparation for his public ministry. It must have 50 times the information, stories, sermons, etc. than the New Testament. It actually helped me understand the New Testament better.

    For spiritual adventurers, this book is a thrill.

    "I have gained new insights by listening"
    If you could sum up The Urantia Book (Part 4): The Life and Teachings of Jesus in three words, what would they be?

    This book has been a long-time companion and has truly changed my life. Listening to this on my iPod while driving long trips has really been a much better experience than I had even hoped for. It's amazing to me that, in hearing the words, I have been able to get a deeper perspective of some of the amazing talks that Jesus gave. It's allowed me to see how the ideas flow into one another with purpose. This, I wasn't able to easily see in reading.

    I would recommend that anyone who's read the Urantia Book download a copy of the spoken version and if you happened upon this and have not read the book, don't wait another minute to get the life-changing benefits from this fantastic book.

    "Wonderful: If It Were Only True"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    The gullible and people who still believe in Santa.


    Has The Urantia Book (Part 4): The Life and Teachings of Jesus turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Oh, absolutely


    What aspect of the narrator’s performance would you have changed?

    I couldn't listen to enough to answer this question


    What character would you cut from The Urantia Book (Part 4): The Life and Teachings of Jesus?

    The character they call Jesus


    Any additional comments?

    Yeah, save your money, buy anything by Bart D. Ehrman, and yep, almost forgot, Santa isn't real either. Don't you get it? The Urantia Book is a 20th Century, biblical forgery. Nothing new and revelatory message here. Sorry folks, just keep moving on. Oh, does anybody want to buy a slightly water-stained 1980, Urantia Book?
