Tony Campolo, a college professor who is also a popular Christian author and
speaker, teams up with Duke Divinity School professor William Willimon for The
Survival Guide for Christians on Campus: How to Be Students and Disciples at
the Same Time. They encourage college students to use the undergraduate
experience to test, think about and ultimately strengthen their faith, not to
shy away from tough questions. The writing is down to earth, chummy (with the
authors referring to themselves by their first names) and even funny, with
numerous examples drawn from popular culture. Campolo and Willimon even pull
examples from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which is not exactly typical fodder
for evangelical books. Many college-age Christians will find this as
indispensable as a toaster oven or micro-fridge. (Mar. 12) Copyright 2001
