Surviving Religion 101: Letters to a Christian Student on Keeping the Faith in College (Paperback)
"I can't imagine a college student--skeptic, doubter, Christian, struggler--who wouldn't benefit from this book." --Kevin DeYoung
For many young adults, the college years are an exciting period of selfdiscovery full of new relationships, new independence, and new experiences. Yet college can also be a time of personal testing and intense questioning-- especially for Christian students confronted with various challenges to Christianity and the Bible for the first time.
Drawing on years of experience as a biblical scholar, Michael Kruger addresses common objections to the Christian faith--the exclusivity of Christianity, Christian intolerance, homosexuality, hell, the problem of evil, science, miracles, and the reliability of the Bible.
If you're a student dealing with doubt or wrestling with objections to Christianity from fellow students and professors alike, this book will equip you to engage secular challenges with intellectual honesty, compassion, and confidence--and ultimately graduate college with your faith intact.
