A firsthand look at secular college life from a Christian perspective written by a student who lived to tell about it could be the perfect gift for high-school graduates preparing to enter the academic battleground themselves this fall.

Entitled “Fish Out of Water: Surviving and Thriving as a Christian on a Secular Campus,” Abby Nye’s new book is a practical, “how-to” manual on navigating the pitfalls of the anti-God, anti-Christian classrooms and dormitories of the modern college campus.

Tips include how to deal with hostile professors, discriminatory administrators, peer pressure and attacks on one’s faith.

Surveys have shown huge numbers of Christians entering secular campuses as freshman abandon their faith before leaving college. Nye is determined to help reverse that trend.

“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,” said WND Editor Joseph Farah. “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.”

Adds Rep. Mike Pence, R-Ind., “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.”
