Ontario, Canada (PRWEB) February 05, 2014
From author Nicholas Snoek, author of The Great Chain on Urantia, comes a factional account of the two-part revelation underlying the Christian faith, using a staged setting and storyline to present the second part thereof in a less formal way, to make the presentation of that revelation less intimidating and more personal. The book is titled “Another View,” and true to its name, gives readers a unique perspective on important matters of faith.
Inasmuch as the Bible is to millions of Christians the be-all and end-all of Christianity, this book is an opportunity to learn an addendum and didactic expansion to the contents of the Bible, entitled “The Urantia Book,” which was published in Chicago in 1955. Snoek’s tale follows two characters, Erin and Lieu, as they engage in a discourse that subtly explores the content of “The Urantia Book.” Through these two principal protagonists, readers will witness a study of revelation, revealed religion and its background. The staged setting facilitates a low-key drama structure to what is otherwise a narrated journey from the infinite past to the current situation as regards revelation in history and in philosophical and theological unfolding. This book is not an exegetical study, but source material is never treated lightly. Only the staged setting has a patina of entertainment and some grounding in the world of solids. To wit, there are no footnotes – scholarship is not intrusive, but it does build the book.
With this book, and the intriguing theological and philosophical discourse in its pages, Snoek recounts a drama delineating the history of revealed religion, giving readers “Another View” of life and faith.

About the Author
Nicholas P. Snoek lived in Holland from 1940 to 1952, then in British Columbia, Canada, till 1979, and since then in Ontario, Canada. He took a year of theology in 1959. He graduated with honors in English from UBC in 1963. Then he taught first-year English and philosophy. He was offered a working philosophy of psychology professorship in 1968 but settled for a teaching certificate—big mistake. His strong interest: the revelationary underlay to comparative religion.
Snoek published “Urantia the Earth: The Origin of It All” several years ago, and it was also an examination of “The Urantia Book” but more formally done, and it reiterated the essentials of part two of the preceding volume “The Great Chain on Urantia.”
About three months after Urantia the Earth he started receiving a series of invitations to apply for membership, from a group labeled ‘The World’s Highest IQs.’ He also received invitations from various coteries specializing in different approaches in the fields of philosophy and theology, including some non-Christian, and these still arrive now and then. So far, as in the case of the professorship invitation of 1968, he has been more discreet than adventurous. The love of wisdom is not necessarily its possession.
