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

I requested this book because my brother is about to head off for college, and I thought that this would be a good and helpful read for both of us. And I would have to agree. I thought the chapters were succinct and well written, and the topics were practical and definitely applicable for what students have to deal with in college, and even as young professionals after college as well. I thought Jonathan Morrow made some excellent points and that his advice was well grounded in Biblical knowledge. I liked the addition to this edition on homosexuality, as it is a topic that is being much discussed particularly on college campuses these days, and many young college believers are not sure how to address it or if it is even an issue.

I received this book from Litfuse Publishing House in exchange for an honest review.
