Editorial Reviews

An inexhaustible supply of sound common sense based on a lifetime's experience of thoughtful consideration.
I had his wisdom as my mentor when I was a schoolboy... cuts straight to the core of so many key spiritual issues, yet it does so in a delightfully sympathetic way.
'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.'
Not a trace of paternalism, just a warm, humorous style spiced with wisdom and affection... irresistible reading.'
Clear, warm advice on standing firm...each short letter is punchy, well informed and readable.
His challenge to a young person is simple and profound: decisions make a difference.
Aims for Christian integrity without ever being simplistic or legalistic. ... radiates an atmosphere of cultured humanity, kindness, hope and respect - which is just what is needed today.
It really does read easily and enjoyably.
It was really helpful... three years of a student's experience with all its issues, thoughts and problems.
... 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.
... the letters overflow with warmth and love- challenging and inspirational.
