An eternal world picture

Martinus (1890-1981) has described in his works - collectively known as "The Third Testament" - a logical, cohesive world picture that shows that all living beings form part of a living universe and evolve continuously towards higher forms of life. The great upheavals and crises of our time are expressive of the downfall of a world culture and the birth of new, humane world society.

A spiritual science

In a logical and scientific way the analysis of the living universe makes it probable that an eternal, all-loving God exists, a God that has always been the source of religions and spiritual life. Martinus also shows how our consciousness, psyche and morality evolve through reincarnation and karma according to natural laws that in the course of time result in all experiences, both pleasant and unpleasant, benefitting the individual. Martinus’ collected works constitute a cosmology or spiritual science that can give the reader an optimistic view of life and inspire him to practise tolerance, neighbourly love and a living relationship to God.

The Third Testament

Martinus’ main work consists of Livets Bog (The Book of Life) in 7 volumes. The Eternal World Picture in 5 volumes forms a supplement to Livets Bog. He has also written a series of other books and a substantial number of articles and many of his lectures have been transcribed and published.
