According to Fox News, Bucks County Community College Professor Dwight “Mitch” Anderson was fired for his faith after he bought copies of How Good Is Good Enough by Andy Stanley and offered them to his students. Professor Anderson said that he told his students they could take a book if they wanted to or not, there was no pressure to take a copy whatsoever.

The professor was reprimanded by the dean and later was ultimately fired for offering a copy of Andy’s book to his class.
