In the compelling bookCollege: What's the Point? Embracing the Mystery of the Kingdom in a Postmodern World, author David Van Heemst passionately and insightfully challenges Christian college students to abandon superficiality and apathy during their four years of college to instead go deep, ask the hard questions, and pursue a life of radical meaning. College: What's the Point? addresses the significant issues facing college students today such as identity, calling, academic integrity, relationships, and healthy sexuality to guide the reader in a thought-provoking journey of faith, reflection, and discovery.College: What's the Point?frames these difficult issues confronting college students in the context of biblical justice and God's redemptive purpose for the world, and speaks directly to the young adult desiring more than the status quo. The author invites students to use their time in college to grapple with the tough questions, to embrace the brokenness, and to participate in ushering in the Kingdom of God. Accessible and engaging, College: What's the Point? enables the reader to approach their college education with a deeper understanding of the impact of these years upon their life, their calling, and the world.

Examines the civic and political attitudes of young Australians. The study uses as its basis a study by the internationally recognised American researcher Caroline Hahn, who spent ten years investigating the political attitudes of students in the United States, England, Denmark, Germany and the Netherlands. The author examines students' attitudes on classroom climate, political experience and interest, political trust, efficacy and confidence as well as equal political rights for women, free expression and civic rights. By using a modified Hahn questionnaire, the author is able to compare Victorian and overseas students. The picture that emerges of our students' political attitudes is quite negative and demonstrates curriculum deficiencies in our schools.

Harold Shapiro, the former president of Princeton, ventured to say that theology had been divorced from the liberal. Professor Doug Dix's book is about arranging a remarriage. His analysis suggests the divorce goes deeper than Shapiro may have realized. Love has been divorced from learning because money has replaced truth as the object of affection. Now students learn to earn. Natural Literacy strives to motivate students and faculty to instead learn to love. What do we truly want to know? Doug Dix proposes that readers discover authentic answers by repairing their motives and returning to their natural roots. His perspective is innovative and certain to be controversial.
