My name is Basil. I am a Roman Soldier. May I tell you a story?
My name is Basil and this is the 13th day of the month of Junius. I am a Roman soldier. I’m keeping this journal because I want you to know what lead me to your God. I was loyal to my country and my emperor. My victories were celebrated, and I was praised by my superiors for my bravery in battle. My future in the Roman cohort was secure, yes even rising. And then you. You and your God.
