Alice
Great historical read, but had no idea where the author was going in some chapters. I may use parts of this for vision casting around prayer.
Bob
A good historical primer of evangelical movements and revivals on university campuses written for undergrads and intended to inspire thoughtful action and prayer. There are many other historical works that are much more comprehensive and thoughtful, however, this makes for a good recommendation for students since it emphasizes application, unlike most historical compilations. The short dramatizations of several key turning points are uneven but helpful summaries. Almost outdated already, the boo ...more

The first 2/3 of this book is great. Really encouraging stories of how college students have shaped the world and the amazing things that can happen when just a handful of kids get together to change the world for Jesus. Very uplifting for those who work in college ministry. The last 1/3 is a promotion for the Campus America project, a prayer initiative. I've haven't personally seen great things come out of movements whose main focus is prayer instead of service and missions - a lot of that sect ...more

An excellent and challenging read detailing the history and presence of God in campuses all over America. I was gladdened to learn of the roots of my alma mater, Rutgers.

Very similar to the book "Fireproof" but with much more updated material. There is a past and present aspect to many of colleges written about. I have given away every copy that I own because I think this should be read by as many college students as possible. Trent came to a college near where I go to school and after meeting him I can tell you that he is a man of passion and fire for reaching campuses for Christ. We've been praying and hoping for a Christ-Awakening in America and feel that thr ...more

I really enjoyed Trent's style of sharing stories and talking about what implications it has for us today in this book. The rhythm is that of "story>implications>next steps" over and over, and sharing the story of prayer as it pertains to God's movement on campuses both past and present. Trent begins with Harvard, and ends with the Campus America movement. It's inspiring and a light, fun read!
Bill
What an inspiring book for campus ministry people. Sheppard outlines some of the key moments in history where God uses the humble hearts of young people to do His incredible works of greatness. Absolutely a "must-read" for anyone interested in campus ministry or anyone who simply wants to be inspired to live obediently to Christ.
Tammy
Great way to get a bigger perspective of God moving through prayer across college campuses and the impact prayer has had through the years. I'd recommend this especially for college students who are new prayer leaders or desire to grow in prayer on their college campuses.
