One of the handicaps to success in college is that there are few books, owner's manuals, or sympathetic professors to help guide students. You go to the local Christian book store to find a book on the subject and find blank shelves. True, there are many fine advice and devotional guides for college students written by such popular writers as Chuck Swindoll, Rick Warren, and John Maxwell, but nothing really cuts to the chase of the problems faced by Christian students who attend major universities. Most are after-the-fact books and none are written by college professors. Even the broader secular book market offers little help for college students. "Street-Smart Advice to Christian College Students," published in 2009 by Deep River Books, contains the advice I looked for, but never found, when I was a Christian student at a large secular university.
