What is Core Book?
Each year, the College selects a "core book." This book is chosen because it embodies and illuminates important themes of Wheaton's Christ at the Core general education curriculum. Throughout the year, we read, discuss, reflect, and learn together about the book and it’s themes. Our faculty contribute thoughtful study guides, cultural and historical contextual background, spiritual insights, and other scholarly resources related to the Core Book. And we host Core Book events such as author lectures, panel discussions, film showings, reading groups, and more.
Who Reads the Core Book?
Everyone! All students, faculty, and staff are invited to participate in the conversation. We also invite local community members as well as the wider public to take advantage of Core Book resources and events. The Core Book program fosters a shared experience across the Wheaton community and beyond as we read, reflect upon, and discuss the book together.
