    great guidance

    This is a companion volume to the equally excellent 'The Grad's Guide to Time with God' and 'The Grad's Guide to Choosing Well'. As the title suggests, this is a book centred on handling the stressful times associated with graduate studies and the student lifestyle. Any of us who have been through this life stage may well have wanted a book like this to help us through, but every stage of growth comes with its own collection of stress-inducing highs and lows. Yet this pocket sized book (yes really !!) outlines the stresses against a biblical model that provides guidance for living and some of the answers. In ten chapters a lot of ground is covered in examining personal issues, approaches to life, coping with changes, insecurities, friendships, discipline and relationships. It is not a passive read because the reader is asked to stand back from time to time and challenge themselves on doing what is right in the sight of God. In this respect, the device of drawing regular parallels with the life of Daniel is a particularly good illustration of how making a stand marks out an individual as having the self-control sought by God, drives us to prayer to seek God's will and keeps our attention on service to God. It encourages independence within scripture guidance. Points are very well illustrated with real life examples, lessons from scripture on the situations that characters like Esther, King David and Paul found themselves in and well argued and reasoned sound advice blended into an easily readable text. I like this book a great deal and will be passing my copy on to someone entering their graduate studies in the next year. I'd highly commend this book as one of the best of its type and its portability is an excellent feature in having people read it in their free moments and apply its lessons with immediacy.

    Surviving Stressful Times

    When I chose to review this book, I figured it'd be another self-help book for Christian teens ready to make their transition from high school to college. My mind was tumbled and turned upside down when I finally began reading the book. Does it discuss how to cope with stress and college like the title suggests? Yes. However, what's unique is that the book focuses on the Book of Daniel from the Bible. Verses are dissected, and readers learn how this prophet was not too different from them. Readers learn about Daniel's childhood and adolescence, how he was taken from home, how he had a close-knit group of friends, how he got his first job, how he relied on God, and how he never once stood by or succumbed to peer pressure that would involve denying his God--even in the face of death. This book will make readers really relate to the Daniel of the Bible and learn that stories from the Bible can definitely be related to their own lives. Superb.
