As a single mother working in a small insurance agency, author Sallie Hite McDaniel promised herself that, if given the opportunity, she would return to school and complete her college education. That opportunity came in 1998 when McDaniel enrolled at Meredith College in North Carolina. It was to be an experience that would change her life forever. Jesus Is My Thesis recounts McDaniel’s academic journey, weaving a tale of tragedy and triumph. As McDaniel soon discovers, higher education consists of much more than reading, writing, and arithmetic. While some professors taught scholarly material and possessed a high degree of integrity, others were politically charged activists who used their classrooms to promote their own agendas—a trend that still continues today. McDaniel uses her own experiences to reveal secret tactics professors use to teach unsuspecting students what to think rather than how, a carefully devised plan aimed at replacing Christian faith and parental wisdom with humanist philosophy. More than an autobiography, McDaniel’s story provides invaluable insight for prospective college students and their parents, stressing the need for a solid biblical foundation. Jesus Is My Thesis presents a wake-up call to Christians already in or planning to enter the academic world.
