Required And Recommended Reading

In his farewell letter to Timothy, the apostle Paul writes “...give attendance to reading.”

Because we cannot teach all that is needed, guided self-learning is also an important component of the course. The following is therefore a list of books necessary for reading between Saturdays and Fridays. You may secure these yourself in either hard copy or electronic format or order them at the academy.


  1. You will need a good size print Bible. We recommend either the NKJV, the KJV or the ESV. These are the versions your tutors will be teaching from.
