Here's a bit of the challenge:
King of the Campus is a discipleship handbook for the college years, covering the basics as well as spiritual disciplines and practices for a growing faith. Lutz calls students to re-examine the Christian life. He calls them to a vibrant life of following Jesus. Students are asked to move beyond "vampire Christianity" to a faith that is active daily. Lutz does a great job explaining holiness and the reason to pursue it. We are to move beyond behaviorism to follow Christ out of our relationship with him.
The usual challenges of college life, partying, sex, cheating and the like are also covered well. Lutz addresses the notion that students can have different "lives" apart from one another, noting that eventually all of those "lives" come together to make you who you really are. He challenges students to live lives of integrity and authenticity. King of the Campus is written with this generation of college students in mind. It well addresses the mindsets and challenges of this generation of students. It would be a great book to share with students heading to campus for the first time. Or use it in a retreat or study setting. Each chapter ends with scripture to study and discussion questions that relate to the subject matter.
