Publishers Description What does it mean to follow Jesus after college? If it was ever easy to graduate from college, choose a direction, and move on in life, it's not easy today. The terrain is unmapped, the destination uncertain, the stakes high. To add to the pressure, Christians often find themselves looking back nostalgically on their school days. Then they knew genuine community, found time to pray, weren't obsessed with money. The "real world" they were promised (or threatened with) during college turns out to be a maze in the haze. Where is God in all this? Richard Lamb deftly blends scriptural insights, stories of recent graduates, and his own life experience to offer sound advice and practical encouragement for a confusing time. As he shows time and again, on matters from jobs to ministry, discipleship can continue after university. Whether you're just finishing a degree or graduated a decade ago, if you look back longingly on the spirituality of your college years and wonder how you can regain it, this the book for you.

Not Just For Soon-To-Be-Grads Jan 5, 2000
This book helped me "take stock" of where my life is going several years AFTER my own college graduation. I found Rich Lamb both practical and inspiring. This book is an excellent resource for anyone in their 20s and early 30s as well.
Wow - perspective altering Dec 29, 1999
In this book, Rich Lamb takes our preconceptions of life after college and reverses them. In doing so, he suggests wonderful alternatives to the acceptable post-college tracks: med school, law schoo, business school, grad school, ibanking, etc. It's a very practical guide for Christians in college -- and I wouldn't wait until your senior year to read it. I've met the author, and it's wonderful to see how he and the students he has discipled have tried to live this good life.
An _essential_ workshop in hands-on Christian discipleship! Aug 18, 1999
In this visionary work, Richard Lamb provides a rare and long-needed treatise on what it means to take a Biblical foundation in the Gospel of Jesus Christ and turn it into the practical choices of how to spend your life. Written by a Stanford grad, Biblically based, with questions and exercises--almost a workshop on evaluating your priorities and values. Not just for college seniors-- A treasure for anyone preparing to "enter the real world" and hoping to live boldly as a Christian in today's society! A great gift for college students.
Practical ways to serve Apr 7, 1998
How do I put my faith into practice if I'm just starting out in the real world? This book answers the question with examples of young people who took the call to serve seriously. It taught me to examine the use of all of my resources--time, money, and posessions--and to realize who they really belong to. Excellent book!
