Given by the Master Hilarion via Danish author Martinus (1890-1981) through overshadowing, as confirmed by Benjamin Creme (Maitreya's Mission Vol.III, p.418). Martinus Thomson (his full name) was a 2.3 degree initiate. The Master Hilarion was St Paul in Palestine.
    This volume gives a meticulous description of the dual nature of creation, and the origin of 'good' and 'evil', as the process of life. "Livets Bog will give an insight into how ... life's direct language exists as life's absolute sole fundamental religion, only able to exist with literally everybody as teachers, everybody as pupils and with all things as doctrines." (p.15) The Book of Life "has been manifested with the purpose of stimulating the individual's ability to understand [the religion of life]". (ibid)
    Eight cosmic symbols are presented and explained in this book to aid understanding of the analyses.

Martinus' Det Tredie Testamente (The Third Testament), as he called it, consists of 11 major works -- Livets Bog (The Book of Life; seven volumes, first published in Danish between 1932 and 1970) and The Eternal World Picture (4 volumes, first published in Danish between 1963 and 1994), which is an elaboration on The Book of Life -- and over 30 smaller volumes.

This volume was first published in English in 1959 and is seen as the introduction to the 7-volume Livets Bog.

Includes colour plates by the author.

The symbol on the cover of all Martinus' main works is symbol no.23, titled 'The fully-evolved human being in God's image after His likeness'.
