It’s no secret that on the spiritual battlefield of colleges and universities, countless church-raised students walk away from their childhood faith before graduation. How can Christian students prepare for—and survive—the worldview battle in real classrooms? Discover field-tested strategies in this survival guide, Prepare to Thrive.


Prepare for the Challenges Ahead

After studying science as a Christian student at secular university, Patricia Engler backpacked around the world interviewing other Christian students. Those conversations revealed that while the problems students face often vary, the solutions they need are largely the same. Discover:

  • Vital facts that reveal the alarming realities of much of modern education.
  • Biblical strategies to build and maintain an uncompromised Christian worldview at university – and apply that worldview to impact culture.
  • Practical tips to navigate the trenches of colleges and universities, including tools to think through faith-challenging messages, handle worldview questions, and resist “brainwashing.”

Whether you’re a current or future student, parent, pastor, mentor, or any other Christian engaging with the culture, Prepare to Thrive is for you. It’s more than possible for students to enter the battlefield of modern education and emerge not only a Christian—but a stronger one.

Let’s find out how.
