Is there a more frightening question for a graduating high school senior than “What will you do with your life?” In college, whether they realize it or not, students will answer that question every day with each decision. All of the new friends and new experiences of higher education will shape their future. It’s critical that students know how to handle college before they’re in the thick of it.

Jonathan Morrow tackles the tough questions that arise during these formative years, including:

  • How do you grow spiritually?
  • How do you manage your time to both study well and have fun?
  • Is all truth relative?
  • Are there good reasons to be a Christian?
  • As a Christian, how should you view issues like dating and sex?

Each chapter of this new edition has been updated, and the author has included a new chapter on Christianity, homosexuality, and the Bible. Grounded in both his own extensive experience and biblical truth, Morrow’s book is full of quick, easy-to-read chapters and excellent advice.

My thoughts:

This book will give so must backbone to the new college student who wants to stand strong in their faith as they head into a new life.

Most of the chapters are short reads and I definitely think this book should be taken in small bites so the reader can fully absorb what is being said.

The author brings up a lot of points that will be challenging as our children head off to college and gives some logical reasoning and research of why what we believe as Christians can be believed.

I think this would be the perfect time of year for a senior in high school to start reading this book. Any sooner and they would probably forget all they have been reading. Maybe even start the summer before they leave for school. But you want to have it read at some point, this will give them so much more confidence as they head into the unknown world of “adulting”.

Grab your copy at your local bookstore, Amazon, or your favorite retailer.
