At last: a brief, easy-to-read introduction to the unique purpose of a Christian college education. This book draws on the insights of a wide range of Christian philosophers, historians, scientists, and theologians, but communicates key concepts in straightforward language that will connect with today's college students. Brief enough to be paired with other first-year texts, it is an ideal introduction to the Christian college experience for students, faculty, staff, and parents.

"Perhaps the best available introduction for students to the aims and purposes of a Christian college education. I see this book as potential replacement for Arthur F. Holmes's venerable The Idea of a Christian College. The Creation-Fall-Redemption core gives Why College Matters an excellent conceptual anchor that is likely to make the book's ideas memorable to students."---Michael Hamilton, Chair, Department of History, Seattle Pacific University

"Why College Matters to God provides an able introduction to some basic aims of Christian higher education Pitched perfectly for entering freshmen, the book shows the marks of wide reading and learnedness, yet it avoids cumbersome digressions. Many students deserve the opportunity to encounter such capable writing, clear-headed insight, and Christian conviction---most of all in these matters that touch upon the central purpose of Christian colleges"---Douglas V. Henry, Department of Philosophy, Baylor University
