    Most Christian college students separate their academic life from attending church, Bible study, and prayer. Too often discipleship of the mind is overlooked if not ignored altogether. However, Donald Opitz and Derek Melleby issue a clarion call to students to integrate their faith and learning in The Outrageous Idea of Academic Faithfulness. Colossians 2:3, after all, indicates that in Christ himself are "all treasures of wisdom and knowledge."

    In eight succinct chapters, the authors stress the importance of academic discipleship and taking studies seriously. According to Opitz and Melleby, a Christian worldview---or biblical gestalt---brings unity to the fragmented curriculum of higher education. Each breezy chapter concludes with thought-provoking discussion questions as well as recommendations for further reading.

    Written for a narrative generation, this guide extracts illustrations from the Book of Daniel, The Lord of the Rings, the experiences of real students, and more. This book is an excellent gift for college-bound seniors in high school. It's essential reading for first-year college students, too. Last, The Outrageous Idea of Academic Faithfulness will benefit professors, pastors, and parents.

    This book is designed to help those who are interested in Christian higher education explore anew the unique features, opportunities, and contemporary challenges of one distinct type of educational institution--the Christian college. What distinguishes Conceiving the Christian College from the many other books on this subject is its incisive discussion of a set of crucial ideas widely misunderstood in the world of Christian higher education. Now serving in his eleventh year as president of one of the nation's foremost Christian colleges, Duane Litfin is well placed to ask pressing questions regarding faith-based education. What is unique about Christian colleges? What is required to sustain them? How do they maintain their bearing in the tumultuous intellectual seas of the twenty-first century? Litfin's themes are large, but they are meant to refocus the conceptual challenges to Christian education in ways that will strengthen both the academic environment of today's Christian colleges and their impact on culture at large.

    Skydiving is an apt metaphor for going to college. In Preparing Your Faith for College, readers work through the process of preparation for the leap into the great unknown as it applies to one's faith. The authors, both experienced youth ministers familiar with the needs and challenges facing high school and college students, present practical concerns and suggestions related to the role of faith in making the transition from high school to college. Using a step-by-step approach based on preparations for making a jump from an airplane, Preparing Your Faith for College helps the student to prepare carefully for the adventure of going to college, including developing and nurturing one's faith. Edgy chapter titles (“Choose Your Landing Site: Target--College” and “Pull the Ripcord: Your Faith” are two examples) introduce topics such as choosing a school, dealing with anxiety, making college connections even before arriving on campus, and making the Catholic faith one's own, not just your parents' faith.

    Richard T. Hughes's highly praised book on the relationship between Christian faith and secular learning--originally published as How Christian Faith Can Sustain the Life of the Mind--is now available in a revised edition that brilliantly incorporates recent interest in the topic of vocation. While the vocational dimensions of the earlier book were implicit, this revised edition makes them explicit. In the first of two completely new chapters, Hughes recounts his own vocational journey, telling how he drew on Christian theology to discover his talents and how best to use them. The second new chapter focuses on the vocation of Christian colleges and universities, including the purpose and goals of church-related education. The story offered here provides a compelling argument that faith, properly pursued, nourishes the openness and curiosity that make a life of the mind possible.

    If it was ever easy to graduate from college, choose a direction, and move on in life, it's not easy today. The terrain is unmapped, the destination uncertain, the stakes high. To add to the pressure, Christians often find themselves looking back nostalgically on their school days. They knew genuine community, found time to pray, and weren't obsessed with money. The "real world" they were promised (or threatened with) during college turns out to be a maze in the haze. Where is God in all this?

    Lamb deftly blends scriptural insights, stories of recent graduates, and his own life experience to offer sound advice and practical encouragement for a confusing time. On matters from jobs to relationships to ministry, he shows how discipleship can continue after you leave college. Whether you're just finishing a degree or looking back longingly on the spirituality of your college years and wonder how to regain it, Following Jesus in the "Real World" offers guidance for the journey.
