Editorial Reviews

Review

"Wow! What a book! Quite frankly, this is the book I've been waiting for the last forty years to give to college students. It is the single best volume I have ever read for preparing students for how to follow Jesus and flourish as his disciple in college." -- J.P. Moreland, Distinguished Professor of Philosophy, Talbot School of Theology, Biola University

"Jonathan has both the intellectual resources as well as the practical experience to provide an effective students' survival guide to university life. I'm impressed with the wide array of issues he discusses, from intellectual challenges to financial problems to sexual snares to getting enough sleep! All this is done in easily digestible bits for the student on the run." -- William Lane Craig, Theologian and author, Reasonable Faith

"Reading this book is like having your own personal mentor and friend to guide you through the rough rapids of college life. College is a great experience, but it can also be faith-shattering if you are not adequately prepared. This book is perfect for the high school senior who is curious about what college life will be like. It is also helpful to the college student who is dealing with the day-to-day challenges and questions faced both in and out of the classroom. -- Mark Schmahl, Pastor of Student Ministries Believers' Chapel, Murfreesboro, TN

"This book will prepare anyone who is either enrolled in college or is planning to go to college for the daily challenges Christians deal with on campus. Jonathan Morrow is aware of the real college world and is dead-on with his excellent insight." -- Blake Smith, Junior, Texas Tech University

"Unpacking biblical truths, Welcome to College is a treasure book of wisdom that will literally save lives and help build a culture of life." -- Kelly Monroe Kullberg, Author, Finding God Beyond Harvard: The Quest for Veritas

"Whether you are an incoming freshman or upperclassman, Jonathan provides straightforward, practical insight for dealing with current issues regarding living the Christian life on campuses everywhere. Not only is this a great read, but you will find a place to turn to when questions or struggles show their face." -- Taylor McCabe, Junior, Baylor University

It covers many issues a student will face on that journey; I think it should be very helpful.
Jennifer Saks
Still the book offers tons of other material that one can use to further study a topic and the chapters are a very quick read and very entertaining.
joecool
I just started reading this book and I can guarantee that I'm going to start recommending this book to seniors in high school!

Format: Paperback
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.

Format: Paperback
Obviously this is written for Christian students entering a secular university, but its uses extend well beyond that narrow audience. Anyone who struggles with one or more of the plethora of topics listed in the Table of Contents will find that chapter insightful, concise, accessible, and practical. There are always discussion questions and suggested further reading, if one wants to go deeper into that subject.

I strongly recommend this book for the above reasons, and also because it's obvious that Mr. Morrow has a strong grasp on such a diversity of subjects, both intellectually and existentially. Very few people could write a book with this wide a swath and do it well -- Morrow is one.

Format: Paperback
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!

18 of 20 people found the following review helpful By Chris on March 21, 2008
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Fresh out of High School and that last summer break, you pack up your child and send them out into the world. You have had 18ish years to prepare them for the world, and now you send them out into it. Your biggest concern is for their safety and that maybe they will call home now and again.

But what about their faith? Have you, your church and their youth group been enough? Are they strong enough? Do they know where to find the answers? Do you? How do they deal with the first "God is dead" statement they hear from a professor?

Morrow provides a handy and engaging resource for just this dilemma. Designed not just for full reading but also a flash-point resource, the book is packed with Godly wisdom, practical advice and "been there, done that" experiences. For situations that demand more information he provides a wealth of resources for further exploration and the end of each chapter as well as a synopsis of each chapter for quick review.

Written for the new college student this book has value for anyone who has ever been stymied, stifled, cajoled, ridiculed or ostracized for trying to defend the faith. It will be even of greater value for those who don't even know were to start. It is a magnificent work in helping you to think Christianly, live Godly, build your faith and defend God and his word.

Format: Paperback
This is being typed quickly because my day is chaotic at the moment :) But, overall, it's a
homerun! I work with Campus Crusade for Christ so it is very pertinent to my work. I read it quickly and enjoyed it personally very much. I think it's
very applicable because it is readable and covers many topics. Students
today have very short attention spans. I think your book answers and
instructs very well. For many, it will also invite deeper study and be an
appetizer for topics they've overlooked and/or been passive about. I like
that you've included the Big Ideas section after each chapter. That's
different. I also like the font, layout, bullet points, and numbering. I
think that it is graphically more inviting to a generation like this. It's such a
refreshment from text heavy, theologically stuffy books. I can tell you know
your stuff, don't flaunt it, but instead have a compassionate and
instructing tone.
