Resources: OLD School’s Favorite Books

The Outdoor Leadership & Discipleship School is our college wilderness program. We have staff members skilled and certified in multi-pitch rock climbing, swift water rescue techniques, and emergency wilderness medicine. OLD School prides itself in high-quality teaching in every respect, but relational discipleship is at the core of our existence. Our passion is equipping students to grow and develop into mature followers of Christ, that make disciples of others. Paul’s letter to the Ephesian church is the passage we study together in the Bible and we also have a fantastic library of works available to students.

Here is our list of favorite resources in that mission to equip disciples of Jesus. Our staff and students have read and re-read them over again. These are books that we heartily recommend to college-age students seeking to be challenged and emboldened in their Christian faith.
