Click on the link Textbook List Year A 2017 - 2018 to see the list of new texts for the upcoming 2017 - 2018 year of the Programme.

The interlude books noted in the text book list have been added to the study list to enhance the theme of the year and the themes of the Common Lessons. This year, Year A the interlude books will be, Fighting with the Bible: Why Scripture Divides us and How it Can Bring us Together by Donn Morgan and The Dream of God: A Call to Return by Verna Dozier. Next year we will have different interlude books.

The fee for the year is $350 for a student in a sponsoring diocese. This fee will include the cost of the Reading and Reflection Guide, and its shipping costs, the mentor fee, texts for the mentor(s), the graduation certificate and support and resources from EfM Canada. Students are expected to purchase their own text books and interlude books which they may do from their preferred bookseller. One of the advantages to the student will be the ability to choose new books, used books, borrowed books or E-books according to their own preference and need.

Each of the four years of the EfM programme has been given an alphabetical designation:

A new Reading and Reflection Guide for Year A, revised to include assignments appropriate to the current reading texts, and new Interlude texts for exploring the theme of ministry in a personal context. The RRG will be produced in Canada; it will support the work of the whole group and it will be supplied to each student only when they register, by EfM Canada.

Things to note in the Reading Assignments:

The core value of EfM is still Theological Reflection and continuous learning about how to live what we believe in our daily life and work . There will be Theological Reflection in most sessions, other common lessons, and groups of students with a mentor or mentors. Mentors will receive regular training to deepen their skills in group leadership and theological reflection. EfM, we are condifdent, will be transformational for all participants and that is the best news of all.
