Surviving Religion 101 – Michael J. Kruger

by | Sep 3, 2021 | Academic Work

Skepticism is alive and well in America. The university system is one of the hottest beds of skepticism, especially towards historic Christianity. It is common for Christian students to enter the university with a faith that they professed. Somewhere along the way, however, some of these students admit that they never truly possessed saving faith.

Dr. Michael Kruger’s book, Surviving Religion 101: Letters to a Christian Student on Keep the Faith in College, specifically addresses his daughter, Emma – a freshman at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Kruger addresses a host of topics, including meaning, morality, the problem of evil, the resurrection, unbelief, science, evolution, philosophy, the authenticity of the New Testament manuscripts, among other things.

The great strength of this book is the blend of scholarship and fatherly wisdom. Neither are sacrificed. Rather, this author writes with stunning theological depth that a young person can understand. The touch of a father is seen throughout the book and gains momentum as the book draws to a close.

The postscript is a powerful polemic that will capture both the heart and the mind of the reader. Skipping it would be a grave mistake. Youth pastors, grandparents, and parents should purchase Surviving Religion 101 and help equip the next generation of Christian leaders. Together, we can stand against the skepticism that is gaining momentum and see the next generation of Christian leaders rise above it all.
