I’m glad to see that Ken Ham is continuing to blow the trumpet and expose the fallacious teachings of compromising Christians who reject the inerrancy of scripture. He is continuing to take flack for it but refusing to budge in his position that the Word of God is supreme. Already Compromised presents his findings on the beliefs and teachings that are taking place in today’s institutes of higher learning – not only secular colleges, but Christian ones as well.

Worse than that, the teaching of Christian colleges often includes a strong emphasis on ‘higher criticism’ particularly within the religion departments. This is even more harmful than the straightforward atheistic/naturalistic teaching presented at secular schools – this students can more easily be prepared to fend off. The partial mixing of truth, compromise, and illogical positions being taught in so many Christian schools is enough to make any parent reconsider sending their children anywhere for college.

In Already Compromised Ham presents the findings of another Answers in Genesis survey conducted by Britt Beemer of America’s Research Group. Ham then explores these findings as he skillfully points out the discrepancies between what school officials claim they believe and what they actually believe. It is a tricky business to be sure. Ham of course focuses upon determining if school officials hold to a literal understanding of Genesis. While this certainly isn’t the only measure of ones Christianity (and Ham makes this clear), it does clearly point to whether an individual is holding solely to the teaching of scripture as the foundation of their worldview or if they are muddying the waters with man-made theories and trying to integrate them (in often preposterous ways) with scripture.

Far more than exploring the beliefs held at major Christian colleges however, Greg Hall of Warner University also writes chapters on worldview to help parents and college-going students understand the battle that is before them. There are also helpful appendices included that point out some of the major fallacious teachings that students are likely to find at colleges to help families prepare to counter them with truth. An appendix including fifteen questions to ask colleges to determine their worldview and the answers you are ideally looking to hear provides an invaluable tool for evaluating whether colleges take Genesis at its word.

Though this is a fairly short book it took me some time to read through. The worldview sections were hard slogging at times, and some of the theories put forth by professors in their attempts to reconcile an old earth with believing in a literal Adam and Eve were…bizarre at best. Ham doesn’t hesitate to call people on the mat by name and to quote from them directly in order to point out their errors. The book is incredibly well annotated, with copious references, and a wealth of scripture – always nice to see.

While Ham’s findings aren’t particularly surprising to me, they are unfortunate. We have never felt led to send our children away for college and this only serves to strengthen our conviction – I’m glad that more online learning options are becoming available as technology progresses.

For families who do feel led to send their children away to college – this book is a must read. It will help you prepare for what you might find even on Christian campuses (only in terms of worldview – moral conduct is another issue entirely!) and teach you how to screen potential institutes of learning before handing over your children. Dig in, Already Compromised is wildly thought provoking!

When I first saw that Ken Ham was coming out with a book on the current state of the Christian Universities I was counting down the days until it came available. With 2 teens on the tail end of high school I was hoping that this book would give me clear direction where to send my children to school. Just give me a list, and tell me which is best, I will move mountains to get them there. The book doesn't do that, it does much better than that in making parents and students think for themselves on what would be the best place for the student by aligning their own biblical worldview with a college who is following the literal Bible.

Ken Ham and Greg Hall teamed up with America's Research Group and Britt Beemer to study over 200 Christian universities and colleges by giving them a survey on core faith questions. The President, Vice President, Science Dept Head and Religion Dept Head were all given the survey. The book is very good at describing their findings from the survey from questions such as "Would you consider yourself to be a young-earth or old-earth Christian", "Do you believe in the inspiration of Scripture?", and "Do you believe of the Flood of Noah's Day?".

Taking the answers to these and many other questions, putting them in pie graphs for the reader to easily understand and then dissecting them and showing the many inconsistencies that were occuring. Lets just say that the majority of the people interviewed were not on the same page and they didn't even know it.

"Just because it is said to be 'Christian' does not mean it will teach a Christian worldview as it should." Learning to have a Christian worldview begins at home in the family, and within a church environment with like minded believers. There are colleges out there with a Christian worldview, but many have fallen prey to the Humanistic mindset and have given in to the ease of 'fitting in'.

Being armed with the truth of God's word, prayer and a biblical worldview is a must when setting out to find a college that is write for you.

Fantastic book, well worth the wait, and an answer to prayer for newbie parent on the college front.
