Like many of my recent connections, I met Benson Hines via my blog and the CCC Blogference. I enjoyed his perspective and comments as he was a non-CCC college ministry guy with a broad range of experience. He has a passion for helping those in college ministry grow and become more effective, and recently wrote a book that he is giving away free online. Here's what Benson shared about the process of writing this book:
"After my yearlong trip exploring college ministry around the U.S., I wrote this book to help all of us value college ministry more and practice it even better. For college ministers, it's a chance to see a little bit of what I learned and to think about a missiological approach to our work. But my real hope is that this book would spread to those outside of college ministry - pastors, parents, Christian leaders, etc. - because Christians greatly need to prioritize college ministry more and understand it better. I deeply want to help develop our field of ministry, and the trip and this book are the first pieces of that!"
Benson's heart to truly benefit others shows in his giving away the book. I wish more great resources such as this would be released free on ebook.
