Reviews - What do our customers think?
Very helpful and well-written  Aug 1, 2006
This is a really excellent overview of the practicalities of campus ministry. It also includes wonderful theological reflections about the topics covered. If you're interested in campus ministry, this is for you.
Wonderful Resource for Campus Denominational Ministry  May 23, 2006
"The College Chaplain" is a wonderful resource for anyone engaged in or contemplating denominational campus ministry. Stephen White's book is a very readable cross between a practical manual for those engaged in day to day ministry on college campuses and a gentle theological reflection on the role of campus chaplain more generally. Though much of the book is specific to the Princeton campus (where the author works), I find this specificity to be a strength in revealing the careful thought he has given to how he has shaped his ministry within his own context. Of course, readers will have to consider their own campus contexts as they use this book to help inform their own ministries. But the true joy of reading this book comes from being invited into how the author weaves together the many roles he plays as a chaplain -- a challenge that exists within all denominations and in every ministry setting.

The book is quite readable -- I read it in only a couple hours, but I have continued to linger over the contents for many weeks. Admittedly, I am a seminarian, so books about ministry appeal to me, but what makes this one worth reading is the distinctive voice of the author: clearly a theological thinker, but engaged in the work of ongoing ministry that gives life and reality to his underlying theology. Though this book is written from within my own Christian denomination, I would recommend it to campus ministers from any tradition as it helps flesh out the many hats that a chaplain wears to his or her students.

Gen-X College Chaplain  Jan 14, 2006
One clarifying note for those considering this text - it is designed almost entirely for campus ministers employed by mainline denominations - not for chaplains employed by universities or for those outside the mainline tradition.

That said, the author makes some nice distinctions about campus minister/chaplain as "pastor, priest, rabbi (teacher), prophet" and so on. I would reccomend this book for anyone just entering the profession or in it only for a year or two.

It is obviously written by someone in a northeast college context, so readers will need to take the author's observations about "the typical college student" within that geographical light. On a techincal note, the CD that comes with it was missing links and files and in general the resources provided are not necessarily cutting edge in design or technology, but good nonetheless.

I would not reccomend this book to university-employed chaplains or anyone who is already well into the field of campus ministry, but personally think it will be a good, helpful quick-read for our seminary interns.
