About-

The time in college is such a precious time of freedom and searching for students walking the maze of new ideas and new relationships. This book offers some guidance for those living that college adventure as Christian disciples. The vocation of the college student is a positive one when Jesus is recognized as an active critic and companion in the midst of college's challenges. The book applies Christologically based analyses to very aspect of the contemporary secular American college experience, enabling the student of faith to understand the challenges, minimize the dangers, and embrace the positives that enrich faith.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"I wish this book had been available before my daughters went away to college. I would have surely placed a copy in their hands. From start to finish, Goldsmith provides a practical guide for believers headed off to 'the new world of the university.' In addition to being practically minded, his intellectual prowess challenges his readers to rethink their usual categories for higher education. A must-read for every disciple who dares to combine faith and learning."
--Howard K. Batson, Pastor, First Baptist Church of Amarillo, Amarillo, TX and past chairman of the Board of Regents of Baylor University.
