I'm interested in deepening my understanding of the faith.
What books would you recommend for someone getting into the faith?
Ones with stories such as the origin of the religion and ones about the teachings.

Nabil's narrative, known also as The Dawnbreakers, is what got me into the faith, as I very much love to hear stories of the sort.

The books are free on line --virtually ALL of them. It's convenient to have 'em on a reader like Kindle.

Still, by far (imho) the fastest most efficient way to learn is w/ a community study circle using the book series. Something about going over it w/ a group is neat, I like learning more plus being w/ friends.

I only ever got to take part in children classes growing up because I had not other youth in my area and I've only completed Ruhi book 1.
I'm interested in learning the origin of the faith and stories and also the teachings of the faith.

In that case I'd second the recommendation of The Dawnbreakers.
