Description:

Getting a Degree vs. Getting an Education

_ _ _

A proverbial student is interested in gaining an education rather than simply pursuing a degree. A quick scan of Proverbs shows that God is more interested in a student’s pursuit of knowledge, understanding, and wisdom than easy courses, convenient times, grades, majors, or careers.

Parents and other support groups are understandably concerned about preparing Christian students for the temptations of university life. Many books are written, and extensive advice is given, to prepare for campus living. However, the academic preparation for Christian students is often ignored or, at best, underrepresented. The book of Proverbs makes it clear: God intends for students to pursue wisdom.

Drawing from over 35 years of experience, author Jeral Williams presents a variety of fun ideas that will guide Christian college students in the pursuit of knowledge, understanding, and wisdom.
