Great Gift for the Graduate
This is a wonderful little book that would make a great gift for that graduate on your to buy list this year. It deals with the stresses of taking that big step to college, moving away from home for the first time and living in an environment with many new personalities. Throughout the book, it refers to the story of Daniel in the Bible and what Graduates can learn from his experience. The book is strongly based upon scripture and it discusses many issues related to the freshman college experience, such as security, conformity, money, making choices, losing and gaining of friends, etc. It is a small book that is quick to read yet contains a lot of valuable and even some inspirational information. I plan to give my copy to my niece when she graduates from high school. There are so many negative factors out there that can influence young people at a very vulnerable time in their lives. Some kids just don't make it through that first year with all the stresses they face. This is one of those good thinking books to help them to stay on the right track and keep their priorities focused in the right direction toward a positive Christian life.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from NavPress Publishers to review as part of their blogger review program. I was not obligated to provide a positive review. The opinions in this review are strictly my own.

excellent pocket sized guide
THE GRAD’S GUIDE TO SURVIVING STRESSFUL TIMES
This is a companion volume to the equally excellent ‘The Grad’s Guide to Time with God’ and ‘The Grad’s Guide to Choosing Well’. As the title suggests, this is a book centred on handling the stressful times associated with graduate studies and the student lifestyle.
Any of us who have been through this life stage may well have wanted a book like this to help us through, but every stage of growth comes with its own collection of stress-inducing highs and lows. Yet this pocket sized book (yes really !!) outlines the stresses against a biblical model that provides guidance for living and some of the answers.
In ten chapters a lot of ground is covered in examining personal issues, approaches to life, coping with changes, insecurities, friendships, discipline and relationships. It is not a passive read because the reader is asked to stand back from time to time and challenge themselves on doing what is right in the sight of God. In this respect, the device of drawing regular parallels with the life of Daniel is a particularly good illustration of how making a stand marks out an individual as having the self-control sought by God, drives us to prayer to seek God’s will and keeps our attention on service to God. It encourages independence within scripture guidance.
Points are very well illustrated with real life examples, lessons from scripture on the situations that characters like Esther, King David and Paul found themselves in and well argued and reasoned sound advice blended into an easily readable text. I like this book a great deal and will be passing my copy on to someone entering their graduate studies in the next year. I’d highly commend this book as one of the best of its type and its portability is an excellent feature in having people read it in their free moments and apply its lessons with immediacy.
