On page 1092 of The URANTIA Book, we are told, Confusion goes before growth as well as before destruction. As the growth and expansion of readerbelievers of the Book proceed throughout the world, thousands of individuals are seeking new ways to share the supernal teachings with their fellows.

It is with this in mind that the Trustees, in our fall 1998 URANTIAN News, instituted and announced new and liberal Copyright Permission Policies which allow readers to use text from The URANTIA Book, provided that minimal guidelines are followed. We hope that this will signal new growth regarding the spread of the teachings.

With growth comes some confusion and for many of us, when we want to use our teachings for educational purposes, we may not have time or not be aware that there is a very liberal policy for the fair use of the URANTIA teachings. To assist in the clarification of educational use, the PermissiontoCopy Policy for Educational Purposes is listed below.

  1. For purposes of this policy, "academic" andlor "educational" means "pertaining to institutional classroom teaching or learning."
  2. Any person may copy and hand out various portions of The URANTIA Book amounting up to one full paper of The URANTIA Book per each academic or educational use without the necessity of requesting or receiving permission from URANTIA Foundation provided that:
