Welcome to another edition of Growth: The Journal of the Association for Christians in Student Development. We are once again excited to bring you another volume of pertinent articles and book reviews that speak to our work as professionals in Student Development work. In this issue you will find four feature pieces focusing on issues of reconciliation, academic advising student engagement and evangelical college sexuality. These articles are complimented by a collection of reviews of recently published books that are relevant to our work. We believe this information will be helpful and instructive to student development practitioners.
There have been a few personnel changes in the Growth staff this year. Polly Graham has joined us in the role of Technical Editor and has been a wonderful addition to the team. Dr. Jason Morris, Assistant Professor of Higher Education at Abilene Christian University has assumed the role of Book Review Editor and has produced a wonderful slate of reviews in this his first issue. We are very thankful for those who work to make Growth possible and are grateful for these new editions to the team.
We want to take this opportunity to offer our apologies to Dr. Mimi Barnard whose name was misspelled in the last issue of Growth. Dr. Barnard’s name was misspelled both on the cover as well as in the body of the journal.
We especially want to encourage you, the reader, to consider submitting manuscripts for consideration for the next issue of Growth. Publication guidelines are included in this issue on the inside of the back cover. We are particularly interested in manuscripts presenting original or basic research and encourage anyone who has recently completed a graduate thesis or dissertation to submit an article.
We thank you for your support for Growth: The Journal of the Association for Christians in Student Development and we trust that you will enjoy and be challenged by what you find in these pages.
