For your ongoing coverage of the Berkeley protests, national religion and culture expert, author and speaker to over 30,000 Millennials every year for over two decades, Dr. Alex McFarland (www.AlexMcFarland.com) is available to comment on the state of America’s universities and why millennials perhaps don’t value free speech.
“What’s happening at Berkley is typical of much of the American academic landscape, where viewpoints that counter the accepted narrative are squelched,” said McFarland. “Violence is incited by a worldview that shows that millennials have abandoned their faith because they are without a solid foundation grounded in truth—and that chasm is being widened by today’s colleges and universities. The situation at Berkeley is proof that so much of American education is not about education but indoctrination, and divergent views are not tolerated. As an example to all who may see violence and intolerance as an answer for their disappointments in the political process, students involved in this violence should be dismissed immediately.”
McFarland is the co-author of the new book, “Abandoned Faith: Why Millennials Are Walking Away and How You Can Lead Them Home,” available for pre-order now at AlexMcFarland.com, with an official release date from Tyndale Publishing and Focus on the Family of March 1 (in stores March 7).
For “Abandoned Faith,” McFarland and Jason Jimenez interview top Christian leaders who work with millennials and families. Their research and conversations shed new light on what Christian parents must do to reach their young adult children. “Abandoned Faith” also offers a strong voice of hope for parents, church leaders and others who serve the millennial generation.
