This book surely applied the need of help and suppport to those Christians who are facing ideological challenge. This is also suitable to those who want to understand and know the difference between Christianity and other religions. Any individual who questions themselves about being a believer of a religion whether they're in college or in a diverse religious environment, I would like to recommend this book to those who thinks it's nesscessary for them to understand about the aspects.
It could turn oneself to be a stronger Christian.

Format: Paperback
Sire establishes a literary style that lets average readers consider complex philosophical issues while reading a story about a diverse bunch of students facing the ideological challenges found in most university campuses.
A great read for those who don't like philosophy, but still want to know about it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely a Great Book (Excuse the pun) 21 April 2002
By Peter Swift - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book does an excellent job of both explaining and reacting to the *isms of the world. Sire manages to not only explain the *isms in understandable terms, he makes it interesting by using a realistic life example: going to a secular college. The book is held together by the thoughts and dialogue of Chris Chrisman and unexpected counterpart: Bob Wong. Both characters are students that go into college with opposite convictions, and through a set of similar circumstances, they both begin to doubt and question their beliefs. The book uses their circumstances to teach the reader about relativism, pluralism, individualism and more. Sire uses easy to understand logic and philosophy coupled with the each situation to convey the the truth: that there are absolutes.
The book would make a great graduation gift for a friend or family member that will be going off to college.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 6 Nov. 2006
By Patrick D. Spence - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I am using the book in a Bible class for college singles. It directly addresses the reality of what young adults can expect from others in relation to faith in God. It is not a book on how to share your faith, but instead it is a book that reveals the actual mindset of the majority in our culture, which is: whatever you believe is good for you, just don't try to involve me, because I don't need you. This is a culture shock for young adults who grew up in a "normal family" but go to college and find out the real world does not define truth or faith at all, but instead teaches that the only truth is there in no truth at all. Eye opening book, I recommend it sincerely. Patrick Spence

5.0 out of 5 stars Another home run. 18 Sept. 2010
By Older Student - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
James W. Sire continues to hit home runs. He writes about complicated philosophical stuff at my level and I recommend his books to the adult Sunday School class I teach. "Chris Chrisman Goes To College" is a good starter book for someone interested in apologetics. The adventures of a fictional "church kid", Chris Chrisman, demonstrate how Christian beliefs are assaulted on the secular college campus. In that context Dr. Sire shows both the force and flaws of secular humanism that permeates campus culture. I recommend it not only for high school students, but their parents as well.
