Essential Study Tools
Backpacks and notebooks are not the only essentials for college students. A microwave or mini-fridge is great for the dorm room. And a good pair of shoes is a must on any campus.
As you invest in your child's academic education and supporting necessities of college life, do not forget about his or her spiritual education.
Bible study resources can help college students study God's Word and apply His principles in their daily lives.
Give your son or daughter the gift of a solid faith foundation. Send them off to college right, with three excellent Bible resources for students: Launch Your Life, Stress Point, and The Voice Bible.
1. Launch Your Life
Launch Your Life: A Guide to Growing Up for the Almost Grownup is a very practical guide for college students.
Kenny Silva, a Master of Divinity student at Reformed Theological Seminary, addresses the various twists and turns that young adults navigate on the road to success.
Silva covers numerous topics of interest to college students, from social networking to resume writing and landing the perfect job.
He also delves into changing relationships, prayer, and spiritual growth. Through it all, students will learn how to turn their failures and disappointments into future successes.
Available in spiral-bound and Kindle editions, Launch Your Life can help your son or daughter prepare for the transition to a life of independence.
2. Stress Point
Stress Point: Thriving Through Your Twenties in a Decade of Drama is an interactive Bible study for young adult women.
The book is written by Sarah Francis Martin, whose passion is to encourage young women to "live out the Kingship of Christ in everyday life."
The book covers all the major life issues for twenty-something women, such as body image, friendships, dating, career, and money.
Martin writes as a slightly-older girlfriend who has "been there, done that, got the not-so-cute tee-shirt."
Through Scripture passages and relevant, real-life stories, Stress Point can help your daughter engage with God in an intimate, more meaningful way.
3. The Voice Bible
The Voice Bible is a dynamic, new translation designed to reach the next generation of Bible readers. It tells the story of God and His Son, Jesus Christ, through compelling poetry and explanatory narratives.
This unique translation gives a fresh voice to the timeless Word of God through the collaborative efforts of Bible scholars, poets, musicians, and other storytellers. Although it reads like a story, it retains the truth and wisdom of God's Word.
The Voice attempts to recapture how the first Bible readers would have encountered the Scriptures. It is the ideal devotional Bible for today's college students.
