Warm and Caring Nov 1, 2007
The book was recommended to me to use in my campus ministry. I found it a wonderful guide to spirituality for all young folks away from home and even for those of us extending care to them. The authors continually remind the reader that God is always there to help in making the many tough life choices on college campuses. The book seems intended as a help in finding God and staying close to His Covenant with us through Jesus Christ. One statement really came home to me where it is said that we must make choices for ourselves but we do not have to make them alone -- God is always there to help. I could not find the specific reference to the other review in the book. I did find that the authors exhorted young people to "...use the gift of sexuality in the way God intended..."
God Goes to College Jun 20, 2007
I bought this book for those in our youth group that are heading off to college and I was VERY upset with the views on sex. The writers merely said it should be safe and in love. God DOES NOT approve of sex before marriage. Read Romans 1:29; 1 Corinthians 5:1, 6:13, 18, 7:2; 2 Corinthians 12:21; Galatians 5:19; Ephesians 5:3; Colossians 3:5; 1 Thessalonians 4:3; Jude 7. Sex between a HUSBAND and his WIFE is the only form of sexual relations that God approves of (Hebrews 13:4). Shame on the writers for leading our youth astray from the Bible and God's direction. I did return the book.
