Its intersting but as a believer who has the holy spirit I dont think its bringing depth into Yeshua's hero as messaiah or speaks sincerly and in depth about the not looking for a western point of view which its foundation is based in s more than just the Malkizedek line,lets talk about the chosen ones.
Christians and atheists alike will benefit from an in-depth study of this revelation. Answers and explains all those questions that the bible leaves unanswered (speaking to those faithful that believe but also have an education and thus need a lot of gaps left in the bible filled). For the atheist (or agnostic), gives you an explanation that IS PLAUSIBLE on a scientific level, leaving nothing to blind faith. Finally,science and spirituality have been reconciled with one another. One cannot read this book and legitimately claim afterward that he/she hasn't been enlightened on some level. Do yourself a favor by downloading, reading, and digesting this awesome revelation into our Universe and it's Creators!
I am very educated in Christian Apologetics & i grew up in the church. However I have studied & even practiced other religions when I "lost my way" & thought my human knowledge was enough to figure "it" all out. So i know...a lot. And I have ALWAYS WANTED TO BE THE ONE WITH ANSWERS & I have ALWAYS been an intellectual... always NEEDING TO LEARN. But Satan knew that. He used it versus me recently...hell,my whole life! So I beg those of u who don't have a firm grip on Jesus & biblical knowledge 2 be careful
I read and studied this book in depth for a lot of years and I still contemplate it often. Unfortunately I have no idea what to think of it. It's filled with amazing ideas but more and more as time goes on I think it may be bunk. Either that or its fact. We'll never know till we die and then we may not know a thing!
It's free, no gimmick, massive knowledge... not a lot versus it if you look... it's always had my attention... I'm saying its free... I'm already impressed... I mean you can't play a android game without getting bombarded with ads and in application purchases... in impressed
I thought I loved Jesus before this book, but now I adore him. I know him better now. Obtain to know his whole life and how he lived it. I challenge anyone from any religion to search something more detailed than this books accounts of the masters life. Nothing can come close in all of urantia(EARTH). The material found in this book is something I can use for the rest of my life. The masters plan is current even to this day and I choose to live my life by his teachings. No one religion is huge enough for god.
I have studied this book for 50 years now & still learn fresh revelations. I would recommend this deeply spiritual & cosmically all-encompassing vessel to any serious seeker for truth, or at least, to gain insight to the Universe, & the Forces, that humans ignore or are unfamiliar with!! Mind-blowing page turner.
This book is a collection of writings from people under the influence of principalities and powers of the air. The bible, which is the true revelation of our creator warned us that such things would from familiar spirits. These are the spirits of the nephilim and these writings sound credible because these beings are very old. The flood PFG Noah destroyed the nephilim but because their spirits were fallen they have been trapped in what we call the ether. They are evil and want only to lead you damnation
I read this over 40 years ago and, to say the very least, I wasn't favorably impressed. When I ran into it here I just had to give it a reread. Every now and then when I do that I find, often to my own amazement, that a work has a value I'd overlooked. Not this time. Do yourself a favor. If you aren't a diagnosed schizophrenic, or if you have been taking your medicine regularly, leave this where you found it.

This is a tremendous book. It encompasses the full scale of human ascension and often tips to subjects beyond our capacity for understanding. It does not insult the intelligence of the reader, nor does it require or solicite any specific participation. A huge breath of new air!
I've been reading the book so I'm so glad for the app. Before I ever even knew what urantia was my thoughts were already processing in this direction. It was refreshing to search such resonation within the words of this tome of knowledge. Thanks for making it an app.
This is a good, plain language condensed ver of, essentially, the Forward to the Urantia is book's focus is on the Uratia Book's teachigs about God, Deity and Reality. It does not contain the fourth section, on the life and teachings of Jesus.I think this "Simplified" edition will be very helpful for a lot of fresh UB Readers - however, it is not a replacement for the reading the Urantia Book itself - which was given to us in full as an authentic Epochal Revelation for this Age.
If you are a "truth seeker" this is a amazing bonus of revelation to all citizens of earth or "Urantia" as we are told is the cosmic name of our planet. Part 4 is the easiest to read, and another testimony of Jesus Christ that is like reading a journal of his adventure on our planet. Part 1 is out God, our Father and the Trinity and the put of their abode. Part 2 is about the local universe Jesus made and Part 3 is the story of our planet and the inhabitants thereon. A truly inspiring read that should hold me engaged for the rest of my life indeed. Begin your mind, and your spirit to the greatest adventure we can have on this planet, to know ourselves and experience God as real religion. This book is an addition to whatever organized religion you practice now, and will whisk you to a fresh awareness that surrounds us in the cosmos.
4.5 StarsI have wanted to read this book for so long! I picked it up not long after it’s release in eBook, but I came across it in a box set for only $10 just before Christmas, so you know I grabbed it for myself! So what did I do, devoured the first book as quick as I could! It was addictive, I tell you... I loved how the Selection was conducted, the dangers that were faced and the emotional turmoil that America faced!I even enjoyed how well this globe was set up. I was able to learn some of the history of how the globe had changed in the future. It wasn’t like what we have now, with some holidays forgotten and easy things that we take for granted were non e growth in America was done well too. She was kind of pushed into joining the Selection by her mother and also Aspen, America’s boyfriend. She did what she had to for her family and it was easier for her to break her heart to do the best for those she loved. I loved that she didn’t change who she was, she stayed real to herself and held her head high, despite being in a lower class. I wanted her to victory Maxon’s heart... despite old flames returning!Although there seems to be a love triangle in the book, I am hooked! I’m really enjoying Kiera Cass’s writing style and how she sucks me into her world! There are characters that I love and some that were made for you to dislike, and the slow growing romances have me aching for more! I’ll be jumping into the next book immediately!
America Singer is just an ordinary girl, that it, until she was chosen to enter a tournament to become Prince Maxon's wife. But what about her boyfriend at home. And what if she does not wish to be the Princess. As the stakes obtain higher and the tournament gets fiercer, what will America choose? Love in the palace and royalty, or love at home with a peasant?Loved this book. Amazing pace, amazing storyline, fresh idea/concept I had not read before. The characters were amazing had had personalities, liveliness, and were not dull at all. This was my favorite of the series. It kept me on the edge of seat and had so much suspense I read it in one sitting and could not place it down. Perfect rental Guidance:This book doesn't have language, sex/nudity, or anything that would prevent anyone from reading it. 12+, anyone who can read this level would be great. This book is more for girls, too.
Rating: 4.5/5.0This book is really a famous one and I had to pick it up as a lot of of my mates read it. Some really enjoyed it and others did not like it at all. One thing I have noticed that most people who did not like it were actually disappointed more about the atmosphere of the book and the era it was set. Their main purpose of reading this book must have been "to have fun another dystopian book". I can't blame them because in that zone the book was not very deep to focus on the dystopian times. Actually a lot of times I have been imagining this was set in the classical era of dancing ballrooms etc. Of course mince the jeans and other stuff. Disregarding the era that the story takes put in I have throughly enjoyed reading this book and felt the style of writing is very simple to e story even though it is a easy one but written in a attractive way. A girl (America) loves a guy (Aspen) who is lower than her in class. They break up, the girl enters into a competiton with 35 girls from various classes to marry a prince (Maxon). I liked several characters in the book and would love to know more how they will act in the sequel.I highly recommend the book for the fans of young adult and romance genres. If you are only looking for a dystopian book then you might be disappointed but still I would say give it a chance.
If you combined the dystopian setting of Hunger Android games books with the backbiting and forced melodrama of ‘Mean Girls’ and The Bachelor TV series you’d have ‘The Selection.’ While I thoroughly enjoyed the Hunger Android games books, I search The Bachelor insipid and boring. Unfortunately, The Selection is much more “Bachelor” than it is Hunger Android games and because of that I am not inspired or motivated to continue the series even though book one leaves the reader low are some observations I noted as I read:- Selection process reminiscent of Hunger Android games series, but with less emotional engagement or risk- The “Princes” selection process is The Bachelor model for selecting fiancés complete with ‘dates.’- The heroine whines about everything that is various in her life resulting from her choice to participate in the selection. She created the choice to participate to benefit her family so suck it up, buttercup.- The dialogue often reads like ‘Mean Girls’ in a girls’ locker room a month before prom: gossip, speculation, backbiting, wishful thinking, will he/won’t he ask me out; wild jealousy when girls talk about their respective dates with the Prince.- Silly names for the fresh countries: Swendway, Honduragua; feels like the author couldn’t be troubled with more detailed globe tom line: this is a pale imitation of some of the other YA dystopian novels out there. If you wish your young people to read about powerful characters in difficult circumstances, look elsewhere.
This book suggestion I actually got from my sister, which rarely happens because I read a lot more than she does. However, I am amazingly glad that she loaned me the book to read. First of all can we talk about that cover? Seriously, of the millions and millions of covers it seems like I’ve seen, that is definitely near the top if not the top ss does a lovely job of incorporating so a lot of various twists and turns and story lines into this one. At the beginning I wasn’t quite so sure I would like it, seemed a bit too Bachelorette-esque for me. But I quickly fell in love with her voice and her characters. One thing’s for sure, her main girl, America (ignore the name, I never said it was creative lol) is a kick-butt, “I-don’t-take-nonsense-from-anyone” type, which I love. Girls aren’t always simpering and weak and needing a guy to save her. True, she also doesn’t often think before she acts, which does obtain her into some situations, but for the most part she works her method out.While I did highly have fun this one, I can’t say for certain that I agree with the script that they were going to use for a tv adaptation of it. Honestly, I’m sincerely hoping that Cass signed away most of her rights and couldn’t change anything about it, otherwise I lost a fair bit of respect for her. She weaves this unbelievable tale full of creativity, and then lets a TV network pick it apart and create it far more inappropriate? ere are two more books in the series, The Elite and The One. I highly suggest reading both, you won't be missing out.
I didn't expect to like this book as much as I did. I love dystopian novels, and have read all the usual suspects - Hunger Games, Divergent, Matched, Delirium, etc. I loved some, not so much others. When this kept showing up in my recommendations, I just assumed it was because it was so popular, and not necessarily for me. I figured I would read the first one and be done - I was so wrong!! I can't read them quick enough! It's an interesting globe they live in, and that's what makes a amazing dystopian book - when the main characters are just doing something so simple, like falling in love, and yet it impacts the entire political and social scheme. There are really amazing characters, well developed and believable - sweet, conniving, funny, @#$%!y. I search myself rooting for girls that are not America, and still being unable to decide who I wish America to end up with. It's a riveting story and I can't wait to read more!
Finally I know why people rave about The Selection series by Kiera Cass! I’ve heard people talking about it for years, and finally decided to obtain it when I saw that the Kindle ver of the first book was on for $2.99. I finished it in a few days, then immediately bought the second book in the series, read it in two days, bought the third, and read it in 1 1/2. Altogether, they were delightful reads, with a purely lovable main hero and a compelling storyline.What Is The Selection About?For thirty-five girls, the Selection is the possibility of a lifetime. [It’s] the opportunity to escape a rigid caste system, live in a palace, and compete for the heart of gorgeous Prince Maxon. But for America Singer, being Selected is a nightmare. It means turning her back on her secret love with Aspen, who is a caste below her, and competing for a crown she doesn’t want. Then America meets Prince Maxon—and realizes that the life she’s always dreamed of may not compare to a future she never ’s dystopian, in the same sense that Dreamstrider by Lindsay Smith and Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi are: set in a far future where America and the other countries of the globe no longer exist as we know them, but as fresh countries with various names, governments, and alliances. America Singer is the main character, a 17-year-old girl named after a country that no longer exists and part of a society ruled by a monarchy and bound by its caste system. She likes her humble life, but can’t pass up on the opportunity to be part of The Selection, even though she hates it, because it will mean more for her family and a path out of poverty. The whole series follows her transition from the “life she always dreamed of” to the “future she never imagined.”Who Will Like The Selection, And Why?Obviously anyone who likes dystopian and the books I mentioned above will like this series. It’s also been compared to Divergent by Veronica Roth, and that comparison is apt. This book isn’t as bleak as those books or others in the genre, although there’s still violence. Because it involves a monarchy, it has more of a speculative feel along the lines of Dark Breaks The Dawn by Sara B. Larson.What’s the Deal?There’s a used copy available from for $3.98 with shipping.

This is definitely a series for 15 and under. I will say the writing and editing is good, but the characters, plausibility and story line isn't. Silly names created up by a teenager. Silly locations also named by a teenager. The main character, America, is a classic, airhead, selfish teenager who takes far to long long to create her mind up and to do right by the main men in her life. I was irritated throughout most of this series and had a hard time finishing them. I truly regret the I spent.
America Singer lives in a globe of castes: One being the highest and most desirable and Eight being the lowest and poorest. America is a Five which is a caste of the arts and entertainment. When their Crown Prince Maxon comes of age it is time for him to marry. Princes are to keep the Selection, a pool of 35 young ladies chosen from the castes and chose his future wife for this group. To her dismay America is chosen to be one of the 35. Leaving behind her home and the boy she loves, Aspen who is a Six, America travels to the palace to partake in the tournament for Maxon's heart and to be the next Queen of rough the beginning of the tournament America is the only one who doesn't wish to be there. She is still in love in Aspen. She soon comes to search she likes Maxon and might see a future with him. So begins the love triangle and the android game is on to see who will America chose, who will survive the rebel deadly attacks and who will create the top six, The was so simple to obtain lost in the story Kiera laid out for us. This is a quick simple read with smooth transitions into the next stage which leaves you desperate for the next book to see what happens. The only issue I had with the story was how much America went back and forth between Aspen and Maxon. But this was a real love triangle except Maxon doesn't know he is in a tournament himself for America since having an outside romance is versus the rules punishable by death. I was turning pages so quick I couldn't place the book down. I didn't even break before I picked up book two, The Elite.I gave this 4.5 out of 5 stars. It is Hunger android games meets the Bachelor. Personally I hate the Bachelor because I think it is unfair for so a lot of women to be fighting for one guy. I kind of felt the same with this book but it is done so well I easily overlooked this. I recommend this to anyone who loves a amazing romance and a small suspense.
Everything was super predictable. It was fine while you were reading it, but left a really poor flavor behind when you stopped. It was like watching a really poor movie, but you can't stop because you just need to obtain it over with and see how it ends so you can be done with it.
A amazing book that will not create any sense if you have not already done some research in history, religion, the occult and the like. As far as the quality of this specific printing it is amazing and is the one I would recommend buying no regrets about this book. As far as the content it is extremely short, but had enough there to respond several questions that I had and is a book I come back to and reference often. With all that said if you just pick this up and read and that is it and expect it to teach you then you are sorely mistaken this is going to seem like nonsensical gibberish to you if you don't know what is being talked about. So if that is you then begin with the following e gick: Liber ABADoctrine & Covenants.& any of the amazing book on Egyptian culture and that point you will understand a lot of what is being said in this book.On a side note I have seen quite a few reviews on here complaining about typos in this book... /facepalm this is incorrect there are no typos. this is an exact typed ver of written pages that were written in the 1800s, they spelled things differently then and were not as picky about where they place an apostrophe or period etc... these are not typos.
So the average reader might read the first chapter, if that..realistically the first page, and think it's just rantings by a angry man, the "devil worshipper". The issue was that Crowley was and still is vilified by the church. When a person sees you reading Crowley you obtain the "dirty look". Those that do study Crowley's work know it's his works are very in depth and can be quite clever. My favorite quote is "Every man and woman is a star". Sounds insane, but the meaning is so perfectly explained in Lon Milo DuQuette's "Understanding Aleister Crowley's Thoth Tarot". I search that DuQuette is able to "decode" some of the more crazier parts of Crowley's e Book of the Law is the "sacred text" of Thelema. It was supposively dictated to Crowley on his wedding night from an entity named [email protected]#$%. The book only has 3 chapters, in the 1st person perspectives of Thelemic deities Nuit, Hadit, and Ra-Hoor-Khuit. The Book of the Law may be short in pages, but the amount of knowledge is intense and should be revisited as I search with most Crowley works, you just seem to search or understand more each time. So to completely review this book, it's difficult to explain to those that have not read it. It is not a "read through" book. It's very rich and loaded with interesting logic.
An essential part of a library on Africa, but Sir Pease drags at times, work your method to the end. He lacks the literary charisma at times of his contemporaries such as President Roosevelt, but delivers a window into early 20th century lion hunting worth moving through to color in other accounts.
I read "The Eye in the Triangle" first and don't know how I would have fared reading this vertheless, my favourite book to quote from and live e language is so strong that it has become part of my being.I have four copies in this format and about 10 in the other books it has appeared in..
To be honest, I thought this book would be more about court life, and less about the actual traits of a courtier. Much of what was in this book was not what I was expecting; kind of like expecting a class to teach about courtroom procedures and how to best use them, but then being told all about how to show oneself in court. Of course, looking good, having a nice voice, being of amazing breeding, knowing how to dress, maybe play music, and education are helpful, but not in this book when one knows those traits are helpful wherever you go. If this was the book on what went on in the courts, and knowing how the condottiere ran the battlefields, no wonder every nation could invade the Italian peninsula!
There are some key points in this book that are truly worth it for me and well worth the but the rest is just insanity. At least all of it is honest. With most "spiritual" books all of it is garbage. And, this man had and didn't have to write to create but because he wanted to create known what he had experienced. It makes a difference on the topic matter if people are writing for or for love of writing alone, and with no regard for critics. I also suspect that he was called "the wickedest man" or something like that because he dared to worship a woman goddess, and a deity triad that had mother, father and child, and not because he did whatever drug he could manage to search and wrote down whatever came out.I still give it five stars because whatever I have received from it was well worth it. (even if it is half a page in total and you have to read the whole thing)
This book or "poetic essay" is quite ingenious if you're reading it from an experienced spiritual vantage point; (therefore I would say this book is not ideal for total beginners of the Path, but this is subjective of course). The style & quality definitely feels like channeled material, as Crowley alleges it to be, and if it's not, it's quite impressive -- and beneficial nonetheless.• It's split up into 3 thematic sections, narrated by 3 various entity-characters: Nuit, Hadit, & e overall theme consists of overthrowing the old paradigm of self-repression based on dogmatic beliefs about life. With specific regard to the audience of ‘enlightened readers’, its overall notice overthrows misguided beliefs about the Spiritual Path, and replaces them with a lucrative appealing alternative; SELF-WORTH -- and an absence of arbitrary, self-imposed limitations about what should or shouldn't be done. (Obviously, this does not entail doing away with discernment & empathy)• Besides material that can be used to cultivate insights, there are a lot of impenetrable Mysteries/puzzles, and obscure allusions. But, that makes it fascinating. As well as frustrating.• With a lot of the passages that seem to be saying something “controversial” at a glance, one can perceive the hidden/metaphorical meaning behind it. However there were some aspects of Ra-Hoor-Khuit’s section to which i had difficulty doing so, and so they seemed arbitrarily bizarre and disturbing. But perhaps the purpose in this case was to deter (“turn away”) people who up until this point didn't possess the proper discernment to extract the real value of all that was said thus far... Kind of like a final checkpoint. Whatever it means, I was incapable of benefiting from it, so I simply moved Y COMPLAINT: Very short for the - I would have liked a ver that provided a preface with more complete expository insight, and also some essential insights into the meaning of the material. Instead, the other half of the book has facsimiles (as advertised) of Aleister Crowley's handwritten copy of the book, which personally doesn't provide me with any additional value at all...5 stars for the value of the material itself; as for the overall product, it would benefit from some revamping, so people can obtain the most out of the text, without having to undergo unnecessary & laborious external research efforts. (perhaps a more “complete” edition exists like I suggested, but if so I couldn't search it in find results. Maybe I suck.)-Paul
