Jonathan Morrow has used his own life experiences and studying of the Bible to create Welcome To College. He wants students to see that it is possible to follow Jesus and grow as a Christian while getting a higher education.
I think this is a book that would be great to study together with your child. I have kids in various stages of college - graduated, currently attending, and will be attending. I am sure that none of them would have finished this book on their own because sections like the theology/worldview chapters are harder to read. I think they would need the encouragement of us going through it with them to understand these parts. It helps that Jonathan gives simple examples for understanding of the more complex areas of the book. This is good because I am not really studied up on such things as the difference between religious particularists versus religious pluralists.
While each chapter is fairly short, I feel most contain a lot of information that needs to be read and studied further to fully grasp it. The author so kindly provides resources at the end of each chapter just for that purpose. Even though Welcome To College is geared towards students getting ready to attend college, this book seems like something most everyone wanting to truly own their faith could benefit reading through. l was provided a complimentary review copy of this book. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255.
