If you go to a public college, is your faith at stake?

Professor Rick Kennedy knows the wariness some Christians take with them to public universities. After all, not too many years ago he went off to school, leaving behind parents concerned for the status of his faith.

But now, after years of public education and more years of teaching at state universities, Kennedy is convinced that Christians who attend such schools should be coached in more than just fear. Large secular colleges are filled with the foolish and the wise, the good and the evil. "Christians," Kennedy insists, "can thrive."

Faith at State offers excellent, encouraging guidance on understanding and relating to professors, performing in the classroom, and being a Christian presence non-Christians can respect.



Rick Kennedy received his PhD at the University of California at Santa Barbara. He wrote this book while an associate professor of history at Indiana University Southeast, New Albany, Indiana. He is currently professor of history at Point Loma Nazarene College.
