Welcome to College: A Christ-Follower's Guide for the Journey, by Jonathan Morrow {a book review}

About the book
Is there a more frightening question for a graduating high school senior than “What will you do with your life?”

In college, whether they realize it or not, students will answer that question every day with each decision. All of the new friends and new experiences of higher education will shape their future. It’s critical that students know how to handle college before they’re in the thick of it.

Jonathan Morrow tackles the tough questions that arise during these formative years, including:

*How do you grow spiritually?
*How do you manage your time to both study well and have fun?
*Is all truth relative?
*Are there good reasons to be a Christian?
*As a Christian, how should you view issues like dating and sex?

Each chapter of this new edition has been updated, and the author has included a new chapter on Christianity, homosexuality, and the Bible. Grounded in both his own extensive experience and biblical truth, Morrow’s book is full of quick, easy-to-read chapters and excellent advice.

What I thought about the book

I requested to review this book specifically with my 17 year old in mind. I know I won't have him home much longer; he is facing college in just a few short, fast months.

Welcome to College is written in an easy, conversational style, which is appealing especially to young adults, I think. A young friend of ours (who is facing college even sooner than my son), commented that it was interesting, and even funny at times. I find the information useful to young collegians.

I like the resources at the end of the book, especially the devotional Bible reading plan for the first semester.

Frankly, I'd recommend this for any high school senior or college freshman to read.

About the author

Jonathan Morrow (DMin, MDiv) is the author of several books including Questioning the Bible and he speaks nationally on biblical worldview, apologetics, and culture. He is adjunct professor of apologetics at Biola University and director of cultural engagement at Impact 360 Institute where he teaches high school and college students. Jonathan is passionate about seeing a new generation build a lasting faith.

Disclosure: I received a free review copy of this book from Litfuse Publicity in order to give you my honest opinion.
