Too many “Christian” colleges and seminaries are going the way of Yale, Harvard and Princeton! A survey of 200 colleges reveals what students are really being taught at today’s Christian universities. The findings are shocking!


What are the core beliefs of America’s Christian colleges and seminaries?

What sort of parents, pastors and youth leaders are today’s most popular schools producing? What are students really taught at Christian college? What end-product are parents spending tens of thousands of dollars each year for? Is your investment likely to yield stronger and more solid beliefs, or a cracked and crumbling foundation? AiG president Ken Ham and college president Dr. Greg Hall team up for this eye-opening assessment. The sequel to last year’s paradigm-shattering Already Gone, this new book looks at what administrators and professors actually believe and teach regarding the Bible and science. The findings are shocking!

This book takes a look at the original intent of the schools—what core mission were they founded on, and do they still follow those core beliefs? There has been a change of focus by many of America’s most prestigious institutions. Over 200 Christian colleges and seminaries were surveyed. Many “Christian” colleges and seminaries are going the way of Yale, Harvard and Princeton.

You will find answers to questions about each school’s purpose, and their stance on the inerrancy of Scripture, origins and age of the earth, and many more. A common theme is that those in Administration do not really know what is being taught, and little is being done to weed out unorthodox and errant teaching. The startling responses from presidents, vice-presidents and heads of key Bible and science chairs are discussed and reviewed in detail. Britt Beemer and a team from America’s Research Group conducted the study in the Spring of 2010, so this is a snapshot of current events in the Christian colleges today. The book serves as a vital resource, engaging parents who are searching for a college for their child.

Read this book to help you determine which Christian colleges will build—and which will damage—your child’s faith. Which are truly worthy of the tens of thousands of dollars that you and your child will spend (or borrow!) to get a “Christian” education. This is a must-read for every parent and senior high school student who want to know what’s really being taught in our Christian colleges. Also excellent for church youth leaders, pastors and pastoral search committees who desire to know what’s behind the degree granted by today’s most prestigious and supposedly solid education institutions!

More than an exposé on the spiritual health of Christian colleges and universities—and those charged with leading them—this book is filled with encouragement. Every reader—those college bound and not—will learn how to develop a Christian worldview. Ham lays out a solid framework for understanding why Christians can’t compromise God’s Word. You’ll find helpful tips for laymen who desire to know what to ask in order to genuinely understand the doctrinal position of colleges and seminaries, and potential church staff members.

Ken Ham’s excellent book ‘Already Compromised’ is a well-written exposé of a dirty little secret: many so-called Christian colleges are almost as destructive to the faith of young college students as secular colleges. These Christian colleges undermine their students with doubts about the Bible. Every Christian parent and young person should read this book and apply its test of educational reliability before enrollment.

Many Christian colleges are Christian in name only. As the founder of a church-related Christian school system (K thru 12) and a 40-year-old accredited college, I found that our most difficult task was selecting faculty who had a biblical worldview.

—Dr. Tim LaHaye, Pastor, Author & Christian Educator/Founder of San Diego Christian College

I have no doubt that the average church member would be shocked and outraged to discover how many supposedly evangelical colleges and universities have more or less given up their commitment to biblical inerrancy and the authority of Scripture—especially when dealing with the early chapters of Genesis.

I’m grateful for this important work by Ken Ham and Greg Hall, documenting the many compromises that have ravaged the Christian academy.

Already Compromised is a much needed wake-up call and a summons to arms for faithful, courageous Bible believers. We need to stand up, declare our faith, and defend the truth of Scripture courageously. The stakes are high and the battle may be more fierce than ever, but God will bless those who honor His Word. May He bless us with clear, unwavering voices.

—John MacArthur, Pastor, Author, Speaker

My brother is a senior pastor in a denomination that has historically been very conservative. He recently told me that he went into seminary young earth but came out old earth because most of his profs were old earth… the main reason people seek a compromise is because they are either seeking academic credibility or, conversely, are afraid of being academically and intellectually ostracized….

—Joel H., Facebook

In this world of tolerance and religious ‘blending,’ these men of secular science (Dr. Richard Dawkins, Dr. Steven Weinburg, Richard Rorty) are leading the way in proclaiming evolution as ‘truth.’ Though in reality it’s not about science at all. It’s about religion and the continuing undermining of Christianity through the chipping away of the Word of God chiefly focused at the collegiate level.

I already hear your response….“We won’t experience that because we will send our child to a Christian establishment.” Think again—not all Christian Colleges are created equal and not all of them teach a Biblical worldview. (from the Homeschool Circus blog)

—Lisa, Homeschool Circus

Thoroughly researched and offering great insights into current academic views of the Bible, this book is a great resource for upcoming college students and their parents.

—Christine Fearnley, Total Living Network

…I just finished withdrawing half-way through my graduate studies from a prominent Christian University because the liberal progressive professors were getting completely out of hand with their disregard for scripture…
