"Yale under God" - does it sound unlikely these days? That's probably because of what has been happening in the past few decades in our country. Our colleges - and America - were founded by believers in God, but there are those revisionists who would argue otherwise. In an effort to include all cultures in this melting-pot of a nation, today's humanists with their man-made ideas have cut any mention of God out of classrooms and textbooks, contributing to the decline of American education.This book is an attempt to restore the Christian history of Yale and its town, New Haven. Beginning with the Puritans in 1638 to the present day, it also reveals a dark side of Yale, along with points of "Lux et Veritas" (light and truth). A few years ago Yale celebrated several events that brought out facets of its history - the 300th birthdays of both the University and Jonathan Edwards, one of its first students (1701 and 1703); the 350th birthday of Elihu Yale; and the Amistad Affair, which was made into a movie by Stephen Spielberg. A few people appreciated these events for a moment, but what long-lasting effect did they have? From the author, who worked at Yale for two decades and has lived in New Haven for even longer, comes the hope that this book will shed some light on our past, be a tool in the reader's hands, and ultimately be a guide to future generations.
