“Finally! The revelatory, scientific, and evolutionary import of The Urantia Book has been situated within an integrative context for the 21st century and beyond. Byron Belitsos’ wonderful book is a clarion call for all of us to (re)engage the Urantia cosmology and consider its provocative meta-view in a new and grounded way. The contribution Belitsos makes to our understanding of soul dynamics is essential reading in these turbulent times." —Sean Esbjörn-Hargens, PhD, founder of MetaIntegral; executive editor of the Journal of Integral Theory and Practice; editor, Metatheory for the Twenty-First Century

“In this important book, Belitsos brings his great learning in the world’s spiritual traditions to bear on the question of soul evolution. He illuminates the Urantia Revelation masterfully, placing this revelation within the larger context of the nature and function of our soul. In my view, this work truly makes a major contribution and deserves a wide readership.” —Glen T. Martin, PhD, professor of philosophy and religious studies at Radford University; author, One World Renaissance and Millennium Dawn

“Not that often do ‘new revelations’ have an exegetist and polyglot who links them immediately to a pluralistic or integral developmental framework and lens. More often, they linger for years with other adherents believing they have a ‘one and only way.’ Belitsos gives the Urantia message a fortuitous leap by linking it immediately to the modern oeuvre of interspiritual and integral worldviews.” —Kurt Johnson, PhD, coauthor, The Coming Interspiritual Age

Sparks of genuine revelation are contained in many religions and esoteric systems. Your Evolving Soul declares that we’ve been graced with a new revelation for our time: the little-known Urantia Book, which has quietly sold over one million copies in a dozen languages. According to the author of this comparative analysis, the disclosures about self, soul, and spirit in the Urantia Revelation stand alone in their coherence and richness of detail. Your Evolving Soul is the first book to fully explain this advanced teaching for the ordinary reader, offering clarity and inspiration for those on any path.

Belitsos compares the Urantia Book's futuristic teachings about the threefold design of the human self-system to the models of selfhood proposed by many previous thinkers, ranging from from Plato and Saint Augustine to Carl Jung and Ken Wilber. He provides essential context for this discussion by illumining the relationship of the Urantia text to scientific psychology and to the world’s religions, with special emphasis on Christianity and Buddhism. Your Evolving Soul also provides an introduction to the cosmology, theology, and philosophy of the Urantia teaching, and reveals its many affinities with contemporary integral theory and modern theology.

Through his lucid interpretation of the Urantia Revelation, the author offers a model of the human self and soul to be tested, examined, and compared—not a finished truth to be accepted as doctrine. Readers of this book will discover a plausible hypothesis of how our evolving soul becomes an immortal vehicle of our true identity. They also learn how our soul-making decisions can lead to the development of a creative, loving, unified, and perfected personality, now and into the afterlife.

Byron Belitsos is one of the world’s leading exponents of The Urantia Book. He brings to his interpretations a lifetime of advanced study in philosophy, psychology, history, and theology and decades of practice in esoteric Christianity and Buddhism. For the past 20 years Belitsos has been the publisher, editor, or coauthor of numerous acclaimed and award-winning books in these fields. Visit him at evolving-souls.org.
