    I first saw this book in the National Catholic Register as a recommended read for the youth going to college. I will be a college freshman this fall, so I thought I this would be a good read for me, especially if I attend a secular university. The author covered the story of Salvation as well as moral challenges college students will face. I particulary liked his reasoning on why morality in romance is important!

    Chrisitan in College

    Many books on Christian living in college have the same attributes--Bible verses, advice that any strong Christian would view as common sense, and the like. However, what I really like about this book is that it has dialog between the Christian and the non-Christian. This allows students to think about situations and know what they should say to non-believers when certain conversations arise. What's also interesting is that the author has a background in ethics. So, the topics covered are highly elucidated in technical terms of social science, but there are many bullet points and dividers as to not overwhelm the reader with large chunks of text. From love to studying to friendships to fellowship, this book has it all. Lastly, the soft hardcover is pretty nice. :)
