Click on the link EfM Text Book List - Year B - 2018 - 2019 to see the list of new texts for the upcoming 2018 - 2019 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 B the interlude books will be, Wrongs to Rights, Steve Heinrichs Ed. (Canadian Content) OR Living into God’s Dream: Dismantling Racism in America, by Catherine Meeks, editor and Faithful Neighbors: Christian-Muslim Vision and Practice, by Robert S. Heaney, Zeyneb Sayilgan, and Claire Haymes. Next year we will have different interlude books.

The fee for the year is $350 for a student in a sponsoring diocese. {EfM Online is considered to be part of a Sponsoring Diocese, so the fee for Online students is also, $350.00.} 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 B, revised to include assignments appropriate to the current reading texts, and new Interlude texts for exploring the theme of multiculteralism 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, by EfM Canada, when they registered in a group.

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.
