17. Is the Urantia Book similar to A Course in Miracles?

ANSWER #1: A Course in Miracles also claims to be transmitted through superhuman sources. However, people with knowledge of both bodies of information feel that the Course focuses on individual healing, personal transformation, and the individual experience of spirituality. While the Urantia Book has much to offer in these areas, it also contains a universal group perspective and gives us a broad picture of the universe we are a part of.

ANSWER #2: A Course in Miracles, like many other revelations of truth that have been given to mankind, offers higher teachings for seekers, but it does not give the Urantia Book’s “big picture” that fits our origin, history and destiny within a universe framework. ACIM focuses on one aspect of God’s amazing plan, and for those who are seeking such knowledge it is a useful tool.
