Fish Out of Water
By Abby Nye
"From the perspective of a parent with college-age children, I thank Abby Nye for confronting us so boldly with the reality of what Christian students face in the secular world of academia. Children need to be prepared for this experience – or they need to avoid it. This book is a needed wakeup call to a nation with its head in the sand about indoctrination, brainwashing and mind control taking place at America's colleges and universities."
- Joseph Farah, Founder of WND.com
"The ancient Greeks differentiated gnosis, theoretical knowledge gained at a distance, from epignosis, knowledge gained through intimate, personal experience. Abby Nye's sprightly-written account of pressures to conform to anti-Christian thought patterns and lifestyles is particularly valuable because it is wonderfully epignostic. Written by a thoughtful young lady with fresh classroom experience, 'Fish Out of Water' is the perfect gift for a Christian student entering a secular college."
- Professor Marvin Olasky, The University of Texas at Austin (Editor in Chief of WORLD magazine)
"'Fish Out of Water' is a must read for every parent and every policy maker in America. Abby Nye's candid account of the trials and tribulations of a committed Christian trying to make her way on the campus of one of today's modern universities is helpful and hopeful. Knowing what is happening at the academy is helpful and knowing that there are courageous and principled young people like Abby Nye gives hope. We highly recommend this important first work of one of tomorrow's great Christian writers!"
- Congressman Mike Pence and Karen Pence, Columbus, Ind.
It is hardly surprising that many young Christians find their faith tested upon entering a university. Secular institutions today are rife with professors who are not only unbelievers, but who actively mock religion, all under the guise of "academic freedom."
Abby Nye, not so far removed from the experience, is concerned about the influences swimming around Christian students who find themselves in secular colleges and universities. She has written a practical "how-to" book on navigating the pitfalls.
Includes tips for dealing with hostile professors, maintaining strong faith and honoring the Lord in one’s academic career. Perfect for high school graduates entering college or freshmen already swimming in the strong current of campus liberalism.
"Fish Out of Water" fills an enormous void in preparing young students for the university experience.
- Key insights from a current graduate student’s perspective
- Strategies for engaging and responding to abusive peer and administrative pressures on campus
- Practical advice for surviving in a faith-challenging environment
