Already Compromised by Ken Ham and Greg Hall from Master Books (a division of New Leaf Publishing Group) is an examination of Christian colleges and the state of their faith. Ham and Hall evaluate Britt Beemer's America's Research Group's poll of 200 Christian colleges and universities on core faith questions, and the results are startling.

College staff was interviewed to find their stance on core Biblical issues with a heavy emphasis on young Earth Creation. The college's curriculum is examined for topics such as the literal Genesis account of Creation, the flood of Noah, evolution and the depth of evolution taught, the inspiration, inerrancy, and infallibility of Scripture, and whether or not the Bible is literally true, and many more. These same questions are asked across campuses. The results reveal the confusion among students and faculty alike.

There are many charts and graphs showing how all these topics line up and where the problems are. Ham and Hall give the student's tools to prepare them for their many battles they're bound to find themselves in, including topics such as how to be ready to give an answer and how to choose the right college.

In the back are several appendixes that provide great tools for students. Appendix B is an explanation of what a worldview is and examines the Christian worldview. Appendix A explores some of the compromises that some theologians and Seminary professors have developed to co-exist with evolution. Appendix C is a rebuttal to the `Documentary Hypothesis' - the idea that Moses did not write the first five books of the Bible, but he was just an editor that compiled various writings. Appendix D is a questionnaire that can be given to a college or church to discover what they truly believe and stand on.

A must read. Quite eye-opening if one wants to know some of the beliefs of colleges and some things that are taught. This book is quite eye-opening and informative. This book is not just informative and relevant to Christian colleges but to public and private colleges, public schools in general, and even churches.

Format: Paperback
In their recent book Already Compromised, authors Ken Ham and Greg Hall sound a warning call to parents enrolling their children at Christian colleges around the country. Why the alarm? As it turns out, not every Christian academic shares Ham's view on creation and Earth history. Presumably, students and parents alike opt for Christian higher education to avoid the influence of 'secularism' (i.e. evolution and 'millions of years'), but what "they don't know," according to Ham, "is that, like the secular schools they wish to avoid...a growing number of the Christian schools they attend are...Already Compromised" (p. 8).

The book begins with a rather simple overview that chronicles the transition of Ivy League seminaries in America to secularized universities. Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Dartmouth--all began as modest institutions designed to raise up ministers in the Puritan and Protestant traditions. But to meet the demands of a growing and diversifying economy, and preserve their stature as major beacons to American intellectuals, these universities adopted principles of academic--and hence religious--freedom in their curriculum. Mr. Ham is correct about one thing: it is mildly disheartening to see the spiritual foundations of our university system blurred in a fog of relativism. But if schools such as Harvard had maintained the narrow disciplinary focus and guidelines that Ham envisions, they would not today be known to us as Harvard, etc., but as 'that little old seminary in Massachusetts'.

Regardless of how one thinks the Ivy League schools should have responded to intellectual movements of the past 400 years, we can still ask whether Christian colleges today should follow a similar path. Ken Ham thinks not.

It wasn't all that long ago I finished reading Ken Ham's book, Already Gone: Why your kids will quit church and what you can do to stop it. Already Gone is about Christian students who grew up in evangelical churches who are leaving the church at alarming rates. Answers in Genesis partnered with Britt Beemer and did a though statistical study to figure out why this was happening. Already Compromised is much like that original study, but it is a study of Christian colleges and the compromise taking place in those institutions whom parents are trusting their children with.

The basis for such a study is that "when parents and students willingly submit themselves to a teacher, accepting him or her as authoritative, accepting what he or she says as truth, they will become like that teacher" (p. 19). I think Ham is spot on with this idea. Much of the way I think, study, and apply theology to my life has been shaped by those I have learned from.

The book is full of facts, figures, and explanations. Many of them are helpful for understanding the place of colleges and universities, but I found many of the numbers sound similar to how students answered questions in Already Gone.
