UKirk ULit is a series of book summaries that focus on the college campus as a unique context for ministry. The reviewers’ summaries go beyond what you might find in online reviews and offer an in-depth analysis of the book’s relevance for young adults and collegiate ministry. The reviews are written by thoughtful practitioners. Each summary follows the same prescribed rubric so that the reader can quickly determine if the particular publication is appealing and helpful for his/her context.
