The desk format of Choice Gleanings is small and compact and provides a short devotional, Bible reading and a related poem or hymn. The copy is printed on both sides, coil bound and able to stand upright for easy reading.
Every morning as believers around the globe lift up their hearts to God to begin their day, a familiar component of that routine will be the Choice Gleanings calendar.
In 1922 William J. Pell began Gospel Folio Press. Becoming exercised about producing a daily devotional calendar, Choice Gleanings was launched in 1940 and was an immediate success. Within a few years Gospel Folio Press found itself producing 40,000 calendars annually. Material for the calendars was gleaned from books, originally, but over time the calendar included more original writing than "gleanings." Today almost sixty writers from around the world contribute meditations to the Choice Gleanings calendar.
