Chris Chrisman Goes to College

Chris Chrisman Goes to College

James W Sire

$22.99

Paperback
Chris Chrisman, a young Christian, goes to college only to have his world turned upside down. On campus he finds the challenges to his faith -- both intellectual and personal -- almost more than he can bear. Then he meets Bill Seipel and Bob Wong. Together, the three young men, two of them Christians and the other a self-styled atheist, forge a common bond in the quest for truth. In the process they confront some of the dominant ideologies of the secular university.

Weaving the story of Chris's first year on campus with separate expository chapters on such forces as individualism, pluralism, relativism and privitization, James Sire offers a helpful apologetic for those who are searching for truth in a postmodern world. He identifies no fewer than six types of relativism, from "All religions boil down to the same thing" and "It's true for you; it's not true for me" to "God does not exist; naturalism is true." Then in down-to-earth language Sire helps readers to think through these and other complex issues.

- Publisher Weaving the story of Chris Chrisman's freshman year with expository chapters on individualism, pluralism, relativism and privatization, James W. Sire helps readers think through the complex ideas which confront Christians and non-Christians alike on university campuses.
