A textbook example of applied Christianity

[Neal] Frey runs Educational Research Analysts…and works to privately pressure [school textbook] publishers before they submit books to the state [educational] board for consideration.

While many of his victories are small, Frey said they add up to something substantial: textbook content better aligned with a…Christian worldview…

David Anderson, a former vice president at textbook publisher Holt, Rinehart & Winston and a Texas Education Agency official from 1997 to 2003, said Frey…has influence with publishers.

When I was with the Texas Education Agency, I did see publishers make changes as a result of information from Frey,” Anderson said…

Most days, he arrives at the office at 11 a.m. and recites two Bible verses; one of them, James 1:5-7, reads: “You must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.”
