Dan Anderson has written a book with his daughter, Jacquelyn, which I believe will be a major asset for parents to use when talking to their daughters about dating.

Dr. Alex Chediak, a professor of engineering and physics at California Baptist University has written a book that, I believe, should be read by all students and parents prior to making decisions about college. He has provided a very accessible book that provides the reader with valuable information and wise counsel regarding choosing a major, student loans, working while a student, budgeting, and finding a job after graduation.
Anderson addresses multiple issues that need to be faced in light of the recent Supreme Court ruling. He argues that the consent-based view serves the desires of adults, not the needs or rights of children. Religious liberty will be threatened. The ruling, he argues, has clearly overreached its authority. Adoption and foster care religious entities will be forced to abandon their ministries if they don’t comply with the ruling. Religious schools are now vulnerable. Christian business people have had and will have major decisions ahead.
