Church Youth "Must Reads" List: What Say You?
If a church asked you to fashion a reading curriculum for the youth of the congregation, 1st grade through 12th grade, consisting of yearly “must reads,” grade-by-grade, with one or more fictional, non-fictional, and Biblical/theological works, how would you advise?
My main focus: Biblical/theological/doctrinal works.
Is there already a list of which you are aware that you would access and provide? If so, what is that list and where might it be obtained?
Or would such a curriculum have to be created? And if created, what book(s) would you recommend for each grade, in each category?
I thought about putting together such a list after talking with some guys at church about what we’d love to see the kids of our church read by the time they graduate, i.e., “these are the books that we want to make sure the youth have read while in our care.”
I appreciate your thoughts and suggestions. Please forward/link to friends and family and ask them to weigh in as well.
The resulting reading list is posted here.
