Its called the college experience. There is so much that will go into your chapter--new friends, new experiences, new ideas, leaving the past, planning for the future, encountering wonderful surprises, and dealing with possible failures. You may find an unexpected variety of challenges to your Christian faith. The daily devotions in this volume offer several resources to help you cope with those challenges. The biblical writers found solutions to their lives as Christian disciples. These meditations invite you to bring your college experience into conversation with their writing and with Jesus Christ. Here is help for you to write your college chapter right in the midst of Gods love and support in the presence of Jesus Christ, Lord and Teacher. Written two thousand years ago, the Bible is actually the most relevant resource for the challenges of college students today. Who do I want amongst my peers and community? For which things and values do I want to stand? Do faith and intellect have to be in competition? . . . Dale Goldsmiths book is a primer on how to keep Jesus Christ front and center in our college years -- and beyond. --Alison Boden, Dean of the Chapel, Princeton University Goldsmith has written a fresh and engaging devotional guide for college students. He provides 365 lessons drawn from Colossians, Matthew, 1 Corinthians, and 1 Peter. These daily devotions walk through each New Testament book and connect them to students life experiences. Along the way, Goldsmith gives guidance for reading the Bible. Look--I Am With You is a unique resource. If you are a college student or have one in your life, I highly recommend it! --Jeannine K. Brown, Professor of New Testament, Bethel Seminary, San Diego Goldsmith brings college students a useful and distinct devotional resource that invites them into the biblical narrative to equip them to examine many of the challenges that college presents [people] of faith. They gain help and encouragement to reflect on how they are following the living Lord and Teacher, as they develop their personal faith story. This is a beneficial tool in a time of considerable opposition and many alternatives to faith in Jesus Christ. --Scott Stewart, Editor, The Quiet Hour Born from a lifetime of being a Christian in the University, these meditations are a gift that professors and students will cherish. --Stanley Hauerwas, Gilbert T. Rowe Professor Emeritus of Divinity and Law, Duke University Without question, there is a dearth of thoughtful books about this period in a young adults life we call the college years. Once again, Dale Goldsmith seeks to fill that gap with his newest offering. In I Am With You youll find sound biblical exegesis and time-honored wisdom infused into Goldsmiths delightful prose about how to navigate those often bewildering years. Delving deeply into four New Testament books, he rightly secures his place as one of the most significant theological voices writing to, rather than about, college students. I couldnt recommend a book more to college ministers (and their students) who are looking for a resource that applies biblical wisdom to the everyday life of young adults during their college careers. --Jason Brian Santos, Coordinator for Youth, College and Young Adult Ministries (Presbyterian Church U.S.A.) and author of A Community Called Taize: A Story of Prayer, Worship, and Reconciliation Dale Goldsmith feels blessed to have spent most of his life in college--as student (BA Princeton, MA/PhD University of Chicago), professor (Baptist Seminary of Mexico and McPherson College), and academic dean (McPherson College and Oklahoma Panhandle State University). Throughout, the study and application of Scripture was central to experiencing purpose and pleasure in the college experience. The author of Growing in Wisdom: Called to the Adventure of College, Dale invites you to use these daily meditat
