The Covenant 100
The Covenant 100 is a collection of books and art recognized for having special significance in worldview and spiritual formation within a orthodox Christian tradition. Each of these works transcend time and denomination, stretch the imagination, and generously cultivate a deep sense of reality through faith. These resources are identified for student research and serve our entire community (parents, alumni, friends) for life-long learning.
The list is a reflection of Covenant’s unique ethos and heritage as a distinctly evangelical, academic institution that honors the richness of authentic Christian thought throughout the centuries and across cultural lines. The list is organized around Covenant’s “Life’s 15 Universal Questions” demonstrating the singular, comprehensive, and cohesive impact of biblical truth on human life in contrast to the inadequacy of other worldviews. This approach is offered within the core evangelical conviction that Scripture is “the supreme authority … for knowledge of God and as a guide to Christian living.”
Within the collection there are three designations:
- CLASSIC (20) – demands universal engagement
- ESSENTIAL (40) – highly illuminating on Christian thought and practice
- ANCILLARY (40) – uniquely carries forward a faith-strengthening dialogue
