The availability of material on this subject is extremely rare. It is honest, hard, direct, and real. If more Christians would read this book I am sure like myself, would immediately stop and start evaluating where our families are and where we need to build our faith stronger.

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.

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.

This book really opened my eyes and heart to what has been happening in the church. It has changed dramatically my objective for my lesson plans, how and what I teach. When you only have children once a week for an hour in a class room setting, it is precious time. I started the Answers in Genesis series for children in February. It has been great. Drawing from what I read in the book Already Compromised, we dig deep into the Scriptures and the children ask more questions. I highly recommend this book for every church member, not just teachers or leaders in the church.

This is a good book. I really like the author and the ministry he represents. I think that the stats here are accurate, but I think that they are presented with a little bit of sensationalism. The truth is scary enough. Doesn't require any extra drama.

Dr. Ham does a thorough job getting to the underlying causes of the lost generation of youth leaving the church. Any church leader who is serious about evaluating his Sunday School programs or children's ministries should read this book first.

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.
