This book will fill an immediate and obvious gap. The numbers of students in higher education is increasing rapidly and collectively they form a vas, fragmented and transitory society-diverse,hedonistic,largely anti-church, yet open to exploring life meaning. The opportunities for ministry are unlimited and this very practical resource aims to equip everyone ministering among this age group. It begins with an illuminating analysis of student culture and then offers practical guidance on worship, prayer, and mission among students, the ministry of welcome and hospitality, pastoral care and spiritual development, prophetic engagement with current issues, working effectively with interfaith colleagues and, the care of college staff as well as students. An all-round and essential resource.
"Robinson's handbook should be widely read by those who are concerned with the future of the Church's ministry among sutdents, at at time when there is widening participation in higher and further education." The Revd Simon Jones, Chaplain, of Merton College,Oxford. CHURCH TIMES.
