FIVE Reasons to buy this book Feb 21, 2008
Welcome to College is an outstanding work! As wise as it is current. Here are FIVE reasons why you should buy this book today.
1. Relevant. Welcome to College is focused on college students--on their concerns, on their needs, and on this pivotal time of their lives. But it is not just a book for college students. It is for anyone who knows, interacts with, teaches, ministers to, parents, or is involved with college students (or college age folks). Welcome to College is a worthy read, no matter your age.
2. Accessible. These chapters come out of a life lived. They are practical, thought out, lived out insights into a Christian life. Not just Jonathan's life, but all of those he's served, worked with, and befriended--a vast number of whom are college students. He's lived this stuff.
3. Diverse subjects. Welcome to College synthesizes subject matter normally not found together. Practical `how to's' like how to deal with syllabus shock, bad roommates, alcohol use and abuse, are combined with intellectual challenges that many young people face on campuses like how Christianity and Science relate and what sort of things we can actually know to be true. Not to mention questions of Christian spirituality, like how to come to know God's will, how become more like Jesus, and Biblical man and womanhood. This is a timely handbook.
4. Great resource. Jonathan has thought through these many issues to provide a ready reference for the most common questions, concerns, and difficulties a college student will face. But knowing that every person is unique and generally will need more of one thing than another, he also provides an abundance of suggested readings and resources (internet and other) if one desires to dig more deeply into any of these issues.
5. This book is an integrated expression of a Christian worldview and a great gift to the next generation of Christendom.
Great and much needed book! Feb 20, 2008
This is a great insight into college life for a Christian student. It's written from a "I've been there" perspective and really hits home for those of us still in college. Highly recommend for anyone going into or in college, especially if you have any questions on what it means to be a Christian in an environment where the right answer is not always clear. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
