Do Any Christian Colleges or Universities Teach David Barton's View of American History?

David Barton is very influential among the Christian Right rank and file, but I wonder if there is any self-identified Christian college or university in the country that uses Barton's books to teach American history?

I don't think any of the schools affiliated with the Council of Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU) use his stuff.  But what about Liberty University, Bob Jones University, Pensacola Christian College, Moody Bible Institute, Patrick Henry, Regent University, or other non-CCCU Christian schools?

Does anyone know if Barton's views are embraced by any institution of higher education?  And I am not talking here about schools that invite Barton to speak.  I am talking about his impact on history curriculum.
