15. Is the Urantia Book a rewriting of the Bible?

ANSWER #1: Although the book contains a phenomenal account of the life and teachings of Jesus, it is not considered a Christian document. Although there are ministers and priests who have discovered the book, the Christian denominations are by and large still unaware of it. The Urantia Book contains information on the major world religions and their histories, stating that there is truth in all religions and that each one would do well to learn from the others, whereas the Bible is limited to Christian doctrines.

ANSWER #1: The Urantia Book could be considered an extension of existing holy writings or possibly a Bible for the new millennium. This one is open to debate. There are teachings which reinforce and expand on certain Bible teachings as well as truths found in other religions. However, there’s also a wealth of information on science, philosophy, cosmology, and advanced teachings on deity which are not found anywhere else.
