The Dwelling Place of Our Eternal Father

In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

The Dwelling Place of Our Eternal Father, according to "The Urantia Book"

Your world, Urantia, is one of many similar inhabited planets which comprise the local universe of Nebadon. This universe, together with similar creations, makes up the superuniverse of Orvonton, from whose capital, Uversa, our commission hails. Orvonton is one of the seven evolutionary superuniverses of time and space which circle the never-beginning, never-ending creation of divine perfection—the central universe of Havona. At the heart of this eternal and central universe is the stationary Isle of Paradise, the geographic center of infinity and the dwelling place of the eternal God. ~ The Urantia Book, (0:0.5)

Dear Readers,
I started reading "The Urantia Book" about three months ago after downloading a free copy from Google Play. I was particularly fascinated with Part III — The History of Urantia as well as Part IV — The Life and Teachings of Jesus. I must confess – I was going through a period of spiritual sluggishness at the time and experienced difficulty focusing on the enormous amount of incredible detail contained in certain sections. Other sections were so captivating that I simply couldn’t stop reading.

I’ve decided to share this book on this old blog, not because I believe everything published therein, but because the book has profoundly changed my viewpoints on matters of palaeontology, evolution, and religion. It has, most certainly, enriched me spiritually, and given me a better understanding of our Awesome Creator.

The following video provides a brief introduction of what the book entails:
