Life on campuses in the twenty-first century can be a very challenging experience for the young Christian. Concerns and temptations like competing belief systems, relationships and schoolwork can be daunting prospects for students and parents alike. Letters to a Student, by Dr. Donald Drew, is a series of letters from an old friend to a student giving advice on all sorts of issues a student may encounter in their years at college. Topics include evangelism, discovering Christian organizations, doubt, temptation, guidance, marriage, singleness, literature, music, exams, consumerism, and graduating.

This encouraging and challenging book is great for students seeking advice and wisdom on a variety of issues they’ll face in college and their young adult years. With the Logos edition, each Scripture is linked with your favorite translation. You can search by topic or Scripture with lightning fast results!

Praise for the Print Edition

An affectionate uncle and peer at the same time, Dr. Drew shows how he rests in God and encourages readers to do the same. Very readable!

—Dr Art Lindsley, Senior Fellow C.S. Lewis Institute

">The letters are very well written and he very appropriately uses references to his own experiences, to literary sources and to the natural world. He also has a good sense of humour. This book would make a very suitable gift for a young Christian just starting at university, or already in the midst of a university course.

—Phemie Cromie, The Covenanter Witness (October 2003)

The intellectual and emotional effort that Drew puts into his letters is impressive and bears witness to his gift of speaking God's word into younger lives. An encouragement to consider the place of godly mentoring in the Christian community, especially for young people.

—Naomi Richardson, The Reformed Theological Review 63:2 (August 2004)
