by Rick Ostrander
At last, a brief, readable introduction to the unique purpose and value of a Christian college education. This book draws on the insights of a wide range of Christian philosophers, historians, scientists, and theologians, but communicates key concepts in straightforward language and analogies that will connect with today's college students. Brief enough to be paired with other "first-year" texts; it is an ideal introduction to the Christian college experience for students, faculty, and staff.
