One Year Reading Program

One Year Reading Program

The following twenty-six books constitute a one-year reading program. At the pace of one book every two weeks, this is an easily attainable goal - particularly as the books have been selected with a manageable length in mind.

The making of any such list is highly subjective, but the following books were selected by James Emery White under the following criteria: 1) easily read within a two-week space of time, almost regardless of schedule; 2) the books, taken together, would constitute an excellent foundation for Christian thought and life; 3) if he had to pick twenty-six books for his own four children, or member of his church, for a one-year reading program, these would be the twenty-six he would select.

It should be noted that the order of the books is alphabetical, by author, and is not intended to determine the actual order of reading. The only suggestion is to be sure and read one book every two weeks to ensure that the twenty-six titles are covered in a one-year span of time. Enjoy.
