It all began when I enlisted in the US Army. I went to basic training, just like every one else, and about a month in, I noticed a friend of mine reading The Urantia Book. At the time, I had had no prior knowledge of the book, and I asked my friend about it. He told me he really did not know, that his dad had given it to him, and so I asked if I could read it.
Instantly I was hooked. Everything that I had ever wanted to know was in the book, and I could identify with the book, and its teachings in general, like I never had before. A new sense of joy came over me as I realized that what I was reading was the most complete reference quide ever to the world that I now live on. It gave me new hope and new love. I owe my life to this book and will always be willing to serve God accordingly.
