It is compiled by the Passage Staff at HoneyRock in conjunction with the CFM department at Wheaton and published through Kendall Hunt Publishers. You will not have access to electronics at passage so you MUST have a hard copy of this book. You can purchase it online through their website, <<click here>> to purchase.
  • Embracing the Love of God by James Bryan Smith (either edition)

***Important Note About E-book’s: You will notice that e-book options are available for both books. If you purchase an e-book you must ALSO purchase the hard copy. You will not have access to electronic devices (phone, computer, kindle, reader etc) so all assignments must be completed in the workbook. If you choose to type your responses you must print them before you leave for Passage and attach them in your workbook. You must have hard copies of both books to effectively participate in discussions.

Special Note for students currently residing outside of the U.S. or Canada:
Sometimes we have issues with books getting to international students on time. If you are confident that you will be able to get your books on time to complete all assignments then you are encouraged to order your books as normal, having the hard copies of both texts shipped to you.

If you are concerned about getting the book in time, you have the following options:
1. Embracing the Love of God: Order an e-book AND a hard copy of Embracing the Love of God. Have the hard copy sent to HoneyRock using the following as the shipping address. It will be waiting for you in your cabin when you arrive. (Your Name, Wheaton Passage, 8660 HoneyRock Road, Three Lakes WI, 54562)

2. Wheaton Passage Workbook 2017: Order the hard copy and have it sent to the following address (Your Name, Wheaton Passage, 8660 HoneyRock Road, Three Lakes WI, 54562).
