Learning For The Love Of God: A Student’s Guide To Academic Faithfulness
Most Christian college students separate their academic life from church attendance, Bible study, and prayer. Too often discipleship of the mind is overlooked if not ignored altogether. In this lively and enlightening book, two authors who are experienced in college youth ministry show students how to be faithful in their studies, approaching education as their vocation.
This revised edition of the well-received The Outrageous Idea of Academic Faithfulness includes updates throughout, two new substantive appendixes, personal stories from students, a new preface, and a fresh interior design. Chapters conclude with thought-provoking discussion questions.
I think this is a great book for all students to read as they get ready to plunge into college. It is a great resource to show how students can be faithful to their Lord while pursing their college studies. We all know that one of the most difficult transitions in life is going from high school to college, especially where our faith is concerned. Many students, unfortunately, take their biblical teachings that have been taught by their parents, pastors, group leaders, etc., and throw them to the wayside in order to “spread their wings.” This is a much needed book for all to read and see:
- What discipleship has to do with learning
- How do they follow Jesus as a student
- What does the Lord require of a college student
This book answers these questions and many more. It is a wonderful book and easy to read. It is packed full of helpful knowledge. I don’t have college students yet, but I am thankful to have read this and got a chance to review this book. I am saving it for sure to have handy when my children transition to college.
