How to Stay Christian in College, by J. Budziszewski
How to Stay Christian in College, is written by J. Budziszewski, a professor of government and theology at the University of Texan and well-known contributing author of articles on Boundless, an online magazine and website for college-aged young adults produced by Focus on the Family.
This book is written for those currently enrolled in college, those who are considering college, and those who care about either group and desire to lift them up in prayer. With the decline of morality and biblical worldview in today’s world at large, it ought not to be a surprise that often the greeting towards believers at a college or university is hostile, rather than welcoming. The rate of young adults leaving the Christian faith of their youth is quite saddening and alarming. Professor Budziszwski address through this book some reasons for this tragedy, as well as truths that one can grip to in order to guard their hearts and souls, to be a light for Christ when faced with ridicule or challenges to your faith.
This book reminded me of foundation truths, challenging me in my resolve and faith. Was I firm in my worldview, having it centered on the infallible Word of God? Was I allowing little disbeliefs or even worse, my own ideas, to replace what God had said to be true? An excellent resource to direct our thoughts towards truths about God and to further our concern for those around us to have their lives saturated with the work and saving grace of the Lord.
