Books Christians Should Read Before College

Books Christians Should Read Before College

Entering your first year of college is probably one of the most exciting and nerve-racking times as a new journey begins. College brings with it new people, new voices, and new experiences.  We thought it would be helpful to put together a list of books every student heading into their first year of college should read. Okay, we only have one book, because who has time to read more than one book between graduating high school and leaving for college? Welcome to College is a great resource for any Christian college student that will help equip and prepare them for the next stage of life.

Welcome to College: A Christ-Follower's Guide for the Journey

Is there a more frightening question for a graduating high school senior than "What will you do with your life?" In college, whether they realize it or not, students will answer that question every day with each decision. All of the new friends and new experiences of higher education will shape their future. It's critical that students know how to handle college before they're in the thick of it.

Jonathan Morrow tackles the tough questions that arise during these formative years, including:

  • How do you grow spiritually?
  • How do you manage your time to both study well and have fun?
  • Is all truth relative?
  • Are there good reasons to be a Christian?
  • As a Christian, how should you view issues like dating and sex?

Each chapter of this new edition has been updated, and the author has included a new chapter on Christianity, homosexuality, and the Bible. Grounded in both his own extensive experience and biblical truth, Morrow's book is full of quick, easy-to-read chapters and excellent advice.
