This unique textbook covers the traditional topics of a College Success course but presents certain topics in a manner that is in greater harmony with the Christian spirit. While other texts may, in fact, cover certain topics in a way that is contradictory to the teachings of the church, this text encourages spiritual development throughout the college experience.
