12 Rounds with 1 Book in 1 Year


I’ve thought of an interesting idea for my reading load in 2014. I am going to read a Christian Formation book 12 times in 1 year.

I’ve already completed Richard Rohr’s Falling Upward: A Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life this year and I think that I’d like to read it 11 more times before 2015.

This type of reading will:

– Allow me to read at a brisk pace, not having to take the time to underline or “dog-ear” pages… because I am going to see that same content 12 times in a short amount of time.

– It will allow me to become familiar with a complete thought/system of formation. Much like the drills that I do in Jiu Jitsu class each week, I will develop 2nd nature familiarity with Rohr’s content.

– Rohr’s thoughts about formation are different than a few other authors that I’ve read. The different octave of the same theme is good for intellectual and soul development.

If you had to read 1 book, 12 times for 1 year, what would it be?
