Rob has been a student of religion - really a seeker of truth, since his youth. He became dissatisfied with Christianity when he was only 10 years old and found himself unable to accept the concept of purgatory - he just couldn't believe God would punish his innocent children in that manner. As with many of us, the more he read, the more he became convinced that he'd never run across a religious text with such depths of spiritual truth. Gradually, he began to realize that The Urantia Book could only have been written with divine spiritual guidance and he made that leap. Now, many years later he is happy to be part of the Hawaii Islands Urantia Readers Group and to find himself firmly on the ascension path as a Son of God.
He teaches "The Life and Teachings of Jesus" for UUI's Urantia Book Studies Program and Part IV of The Urantia Book for the Teacher Training Program with his partner, Geri Johnson.
