Life on campuses or the 21st Century can be a very challenging experience for the young Christian. Amongst competing belief systems it can seem the only one absent is orthodox, evangelical Christianity Then there are the practical concerns and temptations...for the parent and student alike it is a daunting prospect.

Letters to a student, by Dr Donald Drew is a series of letters from an old friend to a student giving advice on all sorts of issues, which a student may encounter in their years at college - Freshers Week, Christian Unions, evangelism, doubt, temptation, guidance, marriage, singleness, mountaineering, literature, music, exams, consumerism, and graduating. The tone is similar to Letters to Malcolm, by C.S. Lewis.

I had his wisdom as my mentor when I was a schoolboy... cuts straight to the core of so many key spiritual issues, yet it does so in a delightfully sympathetic way.

Lieutenant General F R Dannatt

‘The intellectual and emotional effort that Drew puts into his letters is impressive and bears witness to his gift of speaking God's word into younger lives. An encouragement to consider the place of godly mentoring in the Christian community, especially for young people, those whose own heart is uncertain,but his brother's is sure.'

Naomi Richardson ‘The Reformed Theological Review 63:2 (August 2004)
