  • Author Byron Belitsos

    Byron Belitsos is an editor, journalist, political activist, and the publisher of Origin Press. He is the author of The Adventure of Being Human, the coauthor of Healing a Broken World, One World Democracy, A Return to Healing, which won a Nautilus Gold award, and The Secret Revelation, and the editor of The Center Within. He is a board member of the Democratic World Federalists and was an inaugural member of Ken Wilber's Integral Institute. He lives in San Rafael, California.

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.

"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
"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
"Your Evolving Soul is a magnificent and timeless work of genius that will inform, enlighten, and raise the consciousness of truth seekers for this and future generations."
Robert W. Hunt, PhD, professor emeritus of mathematics, Humboldt State University
"Brilliant! Belitsos conveys a profound explanation of why we're here, where we're going, and our contribution to the evolving soul of creation. His seminal work gathers and integrates vast knowledge of our traditions and also explicates the epochal revelation of the age to come that is stunningly delivered by celestial authors. What a journey of mind-understanding and soul-awareness that enables the serious reader to connect with his own soul and cooperate in its growth."
Richard Rosen, PhD, author of Dear Abba and Life After Death
"Your Evolving Soul is intellectually brilliant and at the same time spiritually resonant. The author supports in a most eloquent way the immense value of the revelatory work, The Urantia Book. He has not only performed a great service on behalf of this revelatory text, but he makes it real and meaningful in the lives of readers."
The Honorable Martin Risacher (Ret.)
"This extraordinary and brilliant book unveils the Urantia Revelation for those not yet ready to tackle such a lengthy tome. Byron not only makes a convincing case for its relevance today, but also manages to add a history of spiritual and philosophical thought that I found surprisingly interesting. Today's spiritual fashion seems to be pantheism, but Belitsos' lucid writing will awaken you to richer and far more inspiring ideas about the human soul and the nature of God."
Katie Darling, spiritual teacher and founder of iWAVE Institute
