Amongst competing belief systems it can seem the only one absent is orthodox, evangelical Christianity. Then there are the practical concerns and temptations. For the parent and student alike it is a daunting prospect. Letters to a Student, by Dr. Donald Drew is a series of letters from an old friend to a student giving advice on all sorts of issues, which a student may encounter in their years at college--Freshers Week, Christian Unions, evangelism, doubt, temptation, guidance, marriage, singleness, mountaineering, literature, music, exams, consumerism, and graduating.

Editorial Reviews

'It can only be good for students following Jesus to be encouraged and challenged - it really does read easily and enjoyably'
'They come with the wisdom, care, and encouragement we need to follow Christ in this crazy old world."'
'An affectionate uncle and peer at the same time Dr Drew shows how he rests in God and encourages readers to do the same. Very readable!'
‘The intellectual and emotional effort that Drew puts into his letters is impressive and bears witness to his gift of speaking God's word into younger lives. An encouragement to consider the place of godly mentoring in the Christian community, especially for young people, those whose own heart is uncertain,but his brother's is sure.'
The letters ‘ are very well written and he very appropriately uses references to his own experiences, to literary sources and to the natural world. He also has a good sense of humour. This book would make a very suitable gift for a young Christian just starting at university, or already in the midst of a university course.'
