From the formation of the galaxies and earth itself, through the birth of Adam and Eve, to the present time of epochal change, The Fifth Revelation: Key Passages from The Urantia Book encapsulates millennia in three hundred fascinating pages. In 1971, when author Kelly Elstrott discovered The Urantia Book his life was changed forever. Almost thirty years later, as a successful chemical engineer, father of six children, including eight-year-old triplets, he compiled The Fifth Revelation in gratitude for the way The Urantia Book has guided and enriched his life. Seekers of spiritual truth and students of comparative religion will be familiar with The Urantia Book as an epic 2,000-page anthology first published in 1955 from papers indited by superhuman personalities in the 1930s.

Now The Fifth Revelation - so called because The Urantia Book was the fifth time the Word of God was given to the people of earth - offers readers an illuminating sneak preview of the uplifting life teachings recorded in the original text, as well as a stand-alone volume of spiritual strength and beauty. Illustrating the book are sixty black-and-white prints of the world's greatest art, including Mary Cassatt's The Bath in a chapter about family love. Elstrott's personality and sensibility further enliven the reading experience with introductions to each chapter and careful notations guiding the reader to the original text. The wise reader will turn early on to the series of appendices at the back of the book, including an excellent glossary and index.

From the beginning, the reader is drawn into a universe startlingly reminiscent of George Lucas' "Star Wars" with countless inhabited planets. The good guys of earthalso known as Urantiaforge their way to perfection through the path of love and beauty and integrity, while the bad guys, who have rejected God's plan of brotherhood, perennially try to sabotage the way back to God, unwittingly serving as testers of faith. Spiritual Oscar winners Melchizedek, Ikhnaton, Isaiah, and Jesus himself, known as the Creator Son, cheer every member of the human race as we step slowly and steadily toward freedom under the watchful eye of a benevolent God.

The Fifth Revelation is a perfect introduction to The Urantia Book, and will fill a long-overdue place on bookshelves of all spiritually committed inhabitants of this sector of the galaxy.
