FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS - with multiple answers from readers around the world

6. Where should I start reading?

ANSWER #1: Although some people start at the beginning and read through to the end, many prefer to pick topics of interest to read through at first. As a suggestion, papers 100 through 102 are excellent chapters to begin with. From there you may want to read Part IV on the Life and Teachings of Jesus, because this section is extremely interesting, rewarding, and easy to understand. There will be some sections of the book which you won’t understand without the help of experienced readers. At this point we suggest you join a study group which will be invaluable.

ANSWER #2: First ask yourself, What is my biggest question in life? Do I want to know more about God? About the structure and organization of the universe? Adam and Eve? Evolution? The history of our planet? Jesus? Life after death? Then find that subject in the Table of Contents and start there. If you allow yourself to be led through the book all your questions will be answered.
