  The Sadler Project by Matthew Block (June 2013)

POSTED HERE for your consideration are the parallel charts for three of Dr. William S. Sadler’s books - The Truth About Spiritualism, The Mind at Mischief and Living a Sane Sex Life. The charts show how Sadler wrote each book, chapter by chapter.

The Truth About Spiritualism  Living a Sane Sex Life

William S. Sadler (1875-1969) was a central figure - perhaps the central figure - in the whole Urantia Book phenomenon, but he remains an enigma. He apparently destroyed nearly all of his personal and professional files, leaving historians little to go on beyond the surface facts of his career and the stories told about him by a tight circle of Urantia Book believers who held him in uncommonly high esteem. His most interesting legacy are his numerous books, most of which have not been read by even the most ardent Urantia Book believers, but which - thanks to the parallel studies - reveal much about him, some of it disturbing.

Most remarkable is the fact that Sadler’s techniques of culling and paraphrasing from his sources (which he often didn’t cite) are, sometimes, distinctly similar to those used by the UB author(s) in writing several Urantia papers. Comparative study of the Sadler parallel charts and the UB parallel charts may shed unexpected new light into Sadler’s real role in the creation of the Urantia Book.
