Story Behind the Book
"Beginning my freshman year in college, God began drawing my heart to His. That spring, I trusted Christ as Lord and Savior and latched on to His journey. As an avid reader and eager Christian, I anxiously sought any material on faith-related topics. More specifically, I was craving material from people in my stage of life. It became quickly apparent, however, that collegiate voices had been overlooked, or at least left untold. This seemed a dangerous void. So with God's provision, I setout to write a book that would tell the stories of common struggles Christians face in college everywhere. Thus began the vision of "Can You Keep Your Faith in College." " -- Abbie Smith

More About Abbie Smith

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Abbie Smith was raised in Atlanta, Georgia. Though she grew up in a loving home, religion was never a priority. Even through her Catholic high school, the concept of a personal relationship with Jesus Christ remained silent. Abbie attended Emory University and accepted Christ in the spring of her freshman year. After four busy years of campus ministry involvement and playing on the tennis team, she graduated in May of 2003 majoring in religion. Abbie is a member of North Point Community Church and resides in Atlanta, Georgia. Her passions include writing, discipleship, and spending time in God s great outdoors."

Abbie Smith was born in 1981.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
An Excellent, Insightful and Easy Read!  Nov 19, 2008
I purchased this book for my Bible Study with high school Senior girls. What stuck out to me was that this wasn't a basic (or boring) study on preparing for college life, but it brought to life the real experiences and struggles of Christian college students. I loved the openness and rawness of each individual. As a youth pastor and graduate of college, I highly recommend this book for both pre-college students and current college students.
 
Helpful for Christian students who are in any college  Apr 18, 2007
If you know a young person in college who is a believer, they need this book. While every story is not perfect, they are generally very inspiring and helpful. Most college kids wonder if they are the only ones dealing with the issues they face, and this book makes it very clear that they are not alone. The benefits cannot be denied, because hearing from their peers about these issues makes a greater difference than it ever would coming from anyone else. Put it on your gift list this year.
 
Great Resource for both Students and their Parents  Jan 2, 2007
My church recently started a campus ministry where I lead worship. It's been a few years since I graduated from college, but I can still recall the difficulties. Recently, I have come across some amazing testimonies of how difficult the transition from home to college is in today's world. Can you Keep Your Faith in College? addresses these difficulties in a very real and practical way. I say "very real" because it is written not by pastors or parents, but by actual students that are living the adventure of the college journey at the present, which gives this book credibility, in my opinion.

Addressing normal college situations like dorms, class, dating, sororities/frats, parties, church and outside college activities these young believers share their ups and downs, problems and solutions, giving great advice on how to protect and renew their faith in Christ. I meet a lot of young believers, and especially of late, brand new college converts in the minsitry I serve, and I am glad to have this resource to share with them as a means of encouragement and discipleship.

I would recommend this book to parents, students, and churches that have campus ministries or just lots of young men and women.
 
A book to help overcome obstacles!  Apr 29, 2006
The research indicates that anywhere from 75 to 90% of high school seniors who identify themselves as Christians will abandon their faith by the time they graduate from college. These are frightening statistics.

Abbie Smith's Can You Keep Your Faith in College? introduces readers to students who are Christians at different stages of their journey with God. They tell their stories about that journey, the good and the bad. These students do not have all the answers but they do believe that God is living on the campuses of America.

The students' stories cover subjects such as: the Classroom, The Dorm, The Pressures, The Greeks, Dating, Transition, Sports, Going Abroad, Barriers and Small Moments.

No matter where you are in your life and journey with God, every student should be able to find several stories that inspire and resonate with them.

I enjoyed "The Harder Way" (Duke University) by James M. It made me think about life and choices in general. One of my favorite stories is "Jesus and Plate Tectonics" (Washington University) by Steven R. We all need the courage of our convictions. The story that hit me square between the eyes was "Embarrassed by Jesus" (University of Colorado) by Dana W. Read it and think about similar experiences in your life. I'm sure everyone has had one.

Armchair Interviews says: Can You Keep Your Faith in College? is a book that reminds us all that we can overcome the obstacles that we or others place in our path as we make our faith journey on the campuses of America.
