Editorial Reviews

Biola University - J. Warner Wallace
"In this updated second edition, Jonathan has improved an already excellent resource by adding the latest evidence for theism and Christianity and including critical discussions of controversial social and moral issues. If you're a student, don't you dare enter college until you've allowed Jonathan Morrow to prepare you. Welcome to College: A Christ-Follower's Guide for the Journey is essential to your success at university."
Sean McDowell
"Welcome to College has been my go-to book for helping students prepare to succeed spiritually, relationally, and academically in college. There is no other book that has such depth and balance. And I am thrilled to see that Jonathan has written a timely and helpful update, incorporating many of the biggest issues students face today. This book is a must-read for all Christian students who hope to have a vibrant faith in college."
Frank Turek
"If I could give just one apologetics book to a Christian going off to college, it is this one. Jonathan Morrow goes well beyond providing evidence for Christianity (as most such books do)—he provides succinct and sound answers to the kinds of moral and emotional issues that often trip up Christian college students. Highly recommended!"
Brett Kunkle
"I know of no other book that has the breadth and depth of Welcome to College to help us equip the next generation with the truth. . . . My own kids will certainly have a copy in their hands as they step onto the college campus."
president of Life Training Institute - Scott Klusendorf
"Welcome to College is easily the best resource for any Christian student who wants not just to survive college but to thrive on campus as an ambassador for Christ. No other book better equips young people for the challenges that lie ahead. I cannot recommend it enough!"
William Lane Craig
"Jonathan Morrow has both the intellectual resources and 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.

"This is a book I wish I could have given to my two kids when they went off to college!"

J. P. Moreland
"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 to follow Jesus and flourish as His disciples in college."
Kelly Monroe Kullberg
"Unpacking biblical truths, Welcome to College is a treasure book of wisdom that will literally save lives and help build a culture of life."
Paul Copan
"Jonathan Morrow has written an extremely practical, insightful guide for navigating the challenges of college life. It is wide-ranging and wise. I enthusiastically recommend it!"
Garrett DeWeese
"With a refreshing mix of good humor and common sense, Jonathan Morrow guides the reader through the practical, intellectual, and moral thickets of beginning college. He writes as an older brother whose knowledge of the territory is recent and realistic. In short, readable chapters he covers all the expected issues and a good number of unexpected ones as well. Here is wisdom, not legalism. I highly recommend this book!"
K. Erik Thoennes
"Welcome to College addresses the most significant issues college students encounter with intelligent, practical wisdom. It will be of immense value to anyone making the adjustment to the exciting challenges these fast-paced years present."
Taylor McCabe
"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."
Blake Smith
"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."
Mark Schmahl
"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 for the college student who is dealing with the day-to-day challenges and questions faced both in and out of the classroom."
Kim Boiko
“Christian students will be able to pick this up year after year and learn something new each time. It has the ability to connect with you no matter where you’re at on your journey.”
