Mars Hill Review
Kevin Heath describes the ambivalence he experienced as a member of both a rowdy college tennis team and a boisterous Campus Crusade group, and wonders whether he was "a wave tossed by the sea, a dog returning to its vomit, or just plain double-minded." This essay recalls the pressures many encounter as they try to juggle the demands of Christian and secular cultures, and the inescapable need for "breathing room."
