Required Course Texts
Students must purchase two text books for the course. There is significant reading that must be done ahead of time so make sure you order these as soon as possible.

  • Wheaton Passage Workbook:
    This can be purchased through the Wheaton College Bookstore >>. It contains the course syllabus, assorted readings and several assignments that must be completed before arriving for Passage. Students currently residing outside of the U.S. or Canada will be emailed a PDF copy of the workbook upon purchase from the bookstore and the hard copy will be provided at check in.
  • Embracing the Love of God by James Bryan Smith (either edition)
    This text is required and can be purchased through the Wheaton College Bookstore >>. You will not have access to electronics at passage so you MUST have a hard copy of this book. Students currently residing outside of the U.S. or Canada have the following options regarding this book:
  1. Order from the bookstore and have it shipped to you (sometimes we have issues with books getting to international students on time but if you are confident you will receive it then this option is great!)
  2. Order from the bookstore and request that it be kept with your hard copy of the workbook to receive it upon your arrival at Wheaton. Because this book must be read before you come to Passage, if you choose this option you must purchase an eBook edition through a separate vendor (amazon, Google etc) so that you can read it ahead of time. An eBook option is available by clicking here>>.
  3. Order a hard copy from a separate vendor (example: amazon.com) and have it shipped to you by clicking here>>.
