The Calvary Reading List

Whether it's a book, a video series, movie, or some other resource, the goal is the same for each selection: that we would have the opportunity to engage with it over the course of a month and be able to come together for a time of sharing and reflection.

We will have a limited amount of each selection to loan out. We also highly recommend using the local resources of the Kent District Library to borrow any books if possible! If you would like to get a discounted rate for buying one yourself, or you want to participate and need help getting a book, please do not hesitate to ask John Quist.

Want to share reflections or thoughts on a particular resource we've read? Been encouraged by a particular idea or thought from one of the resources? We'd love to hear from you!

Learning to follow the unconventional travel itinerary of a first-century carpenter and his rag tag group of friends as they hop fences, cross borders, and generally go where most people don't.

Donald S. Whitney

The ten diagnostic spiritual health questions Donald Whitney unpacks in the book are as follows:

  1. Do you thirst for God?
  2. Are you governed increasingly by God’s Word?
  3. Are you more loving?
  4. Are you more sensitive to God’s presence?
  5. Do you have a growing concern for the spiritual and temporal needs of others?
  6. Do you delight in the bride of Christ?
  7. Are the spiritual disciplines increasingly important to you?
  8. Do you still grieve over sin?
  9. Are you a quicker forgiver?
  10. Do you yearn for heaven and to be with Jesus?
