The North American campus is filled with things — ideas, opportunities, and experiences — that vie for the attention and allegiance of today’s student.
Both Christian and non-Christian students will give themselves to something — with the hope that it will be significant and change everything. And although there are a lot of interesting things to think about, opportunities to explore, and experiences to have — these things fail to be understood correctly when given the Supreme position in one’s heart — and life.
It’s with this sensitivity to the college experience that Guy Chmieleski wrote his new book, CAMPUS gODS. CAMPUS gODS steers clear of the typical moralizing tone so often taken with today’s students in favor of meeting them where they are and outlining a reasonable faith with spiritual depth.
Despite boldly foraying into the seductive minefield of “campus gods,” the book maintains a conversational and even invitational tone. The book will be perfect for small groups of college students to read and talk through together.
Guy Chmieleski is the founder of FaithonCampus.com, University Minister at Friends University in Kansas, and author of the Seedbed books, Shaping Their Future, CAMPUS gODS, and Noise. Hurry. Crowds. He earned his Master of Arts in Ministry from Palm Beach Atlantic University and his Doctorate of Ministry from George Fox Evangelical Seminary.
