  1. "Converted to the Kingdom:" Social Action Among College Students Today

    Spring 2008, College & Young Adult Ministry — Pages 88-100

    A renewed interest in social action has captured this generation of Christian college students. This movement represents a change from previous generations, in which those committed to the truth and evangelism kept a distance from social justice issues. Conversely, those who embraced action often did so at the expense of scriptural authority or the exclusivity of Christ. A new generation of students does not see the divide, but for the most part cannot articulate why the two should be linked. By teaching a holistic gospel that proclaims the Kingdom of God, Christian educators have the opportunity to help these students ground their action in their faith. Students can move beyond simply doing something that makes them "feel good" to embracing the Kingdom of God in a way that gives meaning to their actions, develops an integrated life, and demonstrates the power of the gospel as a witness to the world.
