"While others run from the battle Piper shows over and over again at least one person is willing was to run toward it... Finally, a voice of sanity in the halls of the ivory tower..." —Josh McDowell
"Finally, some clarity in our murky times! Everett Piper exposes the shallowness and tragedy of so much of modern education." —Sean McDowell
Dr. Piper is a dose of reality in a world of college fantasies. He says and does whatever college president ought to say, but won’t. — Jim Garlow
What has happened to the American spirit? We've gone from "Give me liberty, or give me death!" to "Take care of me, please." Our colleges were once bastions of free speech; now they're bastions of speech codes. Our culture once rewarded independence; now it rewards victimhood. Parents once taught their kids how to fend for themselves; now, any parent who tries may get a visit from the police.
In Not a Day Care, Dr. Everett Piper, president of Oklahoma Wesleyan University and author of the viral essay, "This Is Not a Day Care. It's a University!," takes a hard look at what's happening around the country--including the demand for "safe spaces" and trigger warnings at universities like Yale, Brandeis, and Oberlin--and digs in his heels against the sad and dangerous infantilization of the American spirit.

Very inspiring, excellent
I just heard a 30-minute interview on the radio with this author. He was very inspiring and spoke on the subjects in this book with great authority and passion. So far, it sounds like a book that I would love to read and recommend others to get. It is sad how he mentioned that so many Christians disagree with what he has written. He is simply challenging Christian education to stop coddling the students by watering down the teachings of Christ, but instead challenge them with unadulterated biblical truth across the curriculum. I will be purchasing this book to find what else he has said. Thank you, Dr. Piper.
Dr PIper is the most authoritative expert on what has caused our college campuses to become coddling day care centers instead of institutions of higher learning and Socratic debate. He NAILS it! Buy this book, read it and pass it on to your freinds. You will be better of for reading it and your friends will find it much harder to be hoodwinked going forward.
