Students face many important choices during the college years. Steven Garber provides a guide to help Christian students connect their faith with the world they live in. Ideal for all who minister to and interact with college students.
-Publisher

All kinds of important choices are made during the college years. Young men and women explore what they really believe about the nature of the world and the purpose of life. They choose their work. They build friendships and often choose to marry. They develop goals and adopt habits that may last a lifetime. Yet late modernity is not a welcome environment for emotional, intellectual and spiritual formation. Society is increasingly fragmented. And the educational system itself, fragmented and specialized, may disintegrate more than it integrates. How do parents, professors, campus ministers, youth pastors and others help students, during one of the most eventful and intense periods of life, learn to connect what they believe about the world with how they live in it? Steven Garber vigorously engages just that question in this revised edition that includes new material on what he has learned about lifelong formation in the years since the book first appeared. Drawing on the history of ideas, ethics, sociology and popular culture, he offers must-reading on the critical lifework of making sense of life. Market/Audience Parents Professors Campus ministers Youth pastors Features and Benefits Offers guidance on how to help students connect their beliefs with their behaviour. Advice for those who teach, mentor or minister to today's students. Identifies the challenges of our time and culture. Draws on the history of ideas, ethics, sociology and other disciplines. Includes lots of examples applying Christian faith to real life: work, relationships, purpose, habits, lifestyle and more. Voted one of Christianity Today's 1998 Books of the Year.
