Editorial Reviews

Sean Hannity
"This book will help students stay in the center of their Christian faith in college!"
cohost of TV's Hannity and Colmes, host of radio's The Sean Hannity Show, and bestselling author of Deliver Us From Evil
Michael Medved
"David Wheaton provides a useful guide to young Christians who want to use biblical guidelines to overcome the most negative elements of academia and youth culture."
Nationally Syndicated Radio Host
John MacArthur
"Young people entering college often encounter overwhelming temptations while being force-fed with godless philosophies--and the results can be spiritually catastrophic. University of Destruction outlines essential practical and biblical principles that will equip students for the inevitable spiritual battle they will face on campus."
bestselling author, pastor of Grace Community Church, and featured teacher of the daily radio broadcast Grace to You
Susan Hammond
"If colleges came with warning labels, they would probably look something like this book... If you are looking for a book that will enable you to overcome the adversities of college life, read your Bible. If you are looking for encouragement to follow that Biblical advice and further instruction in discernment and maturity, the University of Destruction is an excellent choice."
Christian Book Previews.com
The Diet of Bookworms
"Throughout the book Wheaton continually refers the student to the Bible, affirming the power and supremacy of the Scriptures. His teaching is consistent with historical Protestantism and will surely reap great benefits in the lives of those who read and heed his teachings. He is deliberate in showing that the greatest sin on campus is not the acts themselves, but the erosion of Christian worldview, without which there is no authority, no right or wrong.

This is a book I would not hesitate to provide as a gift for any student who is planning on attending college. It would be an excellent title for the student to read and study with his parents. I definitely recommend it."

    A must read for any high school graduate

    College is a spiritually destructive place for young Christians and non-Christians alike. This easy to understand book gives young men and women a chance evaluate themselving going into college (or the 'real world'), possibly grow in faith, maintain existing faith and succeed in college should they heed the advice of David Wheaton.
