Calvinist Baptist preacher William Miller (1782-1849) was the first prominent American popularizer of using biblical prophecy to determine a specific and imminent time for Christ's return to earth. On October 22, 1844 - a day known as the Great Disappointment - he and his followers gave away their possessions, abandoned their work, donned white robes, and ascended to rooftops and hilltops to await a Second Coming that never actually came. Or so the story goes. Reflecting Rowe's meticulous research throughout, God's Strange Work does more than tell one man's remarkable story. It encapsulates the broader history of American Christianity in the time period and sets the stage for many significant later developments: the founding of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, the tenets of various well-known new religious movements, and even the enduring American fascination with end-times prophecy. Rowe rescues Miller from the fringes and places him where he rightly belongs - in the center of American religious history.

Published in 1955 under the direction of psychiatrist William Sadler, The Urantia Book is the largest and most sophisticated work of New Age literature ever produced. This massive tome of over 2,000 pages is believed by devotees to be a revelation to our world, which is allegedly called Urantia in the language of the unseen higher beings credited with inspiring the book. Unlike other channeled bibles, The Urantia Book contains a vast amount of modern science as well as an extensive biography of Jesus Christ, filled with details not found in the Gospels.Well-known skeptic and acclaimed popular science writer Martin Gardner presents a complete history of the Urantia movement, from its beginnings in the early 20th century to the present day. In addition to providing an outline of the Urantia cult's worldview, Gardner presents strong evidence to establish the identity of the man whose trancelike orations formed the basis of the book. Gardner also analyzes the flaws in Urantian science and points out many instances of plagiarism in various sections of the book.In a new postscript to this paperback edition, Gardner details recent developments in the Urantia movement, corrects some errors in the original edition, and responds to critical reactions from Urantia believers to his skeptical perspective on the book and the movement.Although there are other histories of The Urantia Book, this is the only one written by a skeptic. Anyone interested in the New Age, cults, or the development of new religions will find much fascinating material in Gardner's thorough overview.Martin Gardner, the creator of Scientific American's Mathematical Games column, which he wrote for more than twenty-five years, is the author of almost one hundred books, including The Annotated Ancient Mariner, Martin Gardner's Favorite Poetic Parodies, From the Wandering Jew to William F. Buckley Jr., and Science: Good, Bad and Bogus. For many years he was also a contributing editor to the Skeptical Inquirer.

A posthumous collection of early communications Harold Sherman received from his Higher Self, whom he named "Ara." HAROLD SHERMAN (1898-1987) was an ESP investigator and a lifelong student of the mysteries of the mind. He published a number of bestselling self-help books, beginning with Your Key to Happiness in 1935. A popular lecturer, he traveled across the United States spreading the message that man needs to learn to utilize the powers of his own mind in order to live life to the fullest. Sherman's wife Martha shared in these studies. In 1941, while living in New York, they began corresponding with a man named Harry Loose in California, who quickly became their spiritual mentor. Loose told them about the Urantia manuscript, a voluminous document reporting to be a revelation from higher universe beings. He believed that this work, which was finally published in 1955 as The Urantia Book, would change the thinking of the world. Loose described to the Shermans much of the manuscript's contents, including its portrayal of a universe teeming with spiritual beings and influences. Sherman was particularly struck by the manuscript's teaching that a fragment of God lived in each human being. The manuscript called this fragment of God the "Thought Adjuster" and said that a Thought Adjuster indwells each of us, to guide and inspire us. Harold believed that he was becoming aware of this inner voice, which identified itself as "Ara." Ara began to communicate messages of various lengths, which Harold copied down as they presented themselves in his mind. Many messages had to do with the role Harold believed he was destined to play in the eventual presentation of the Urantia revelation to the world. The Ara messages were recorded, neatly typed, in a loose-leaf binder, together with accounts of dreams, psychic impressions, and Urantia-related poems. These writings span the years 1938-1952, with the bulk of the material recorded in 1941-42.
