This resource is a handy biblical reference on a plethora of issues students potentially face. It covers an extensive array of subjects ranging from “Choices” and “Faith” to “Manipulation” and “Cross-dressing.” The authors typically write four to eight different summary statements they feel Scripture supports about the particular subject and then back it up with quotes from the Old and New Testaments. When applicable, they introduce a biblical character who illustrates an aspect of the subject. The danger in any book like this is that the authors take bits and pieces of Scripture and apply them to a specific issue. The reader must be personally diligent to ensure that the Scripture quoted is taken and used in context.
