The largest Christian university in the United States is taking on the U.S. Department of Education after the agency levied against the school the heftiest fine in departmental history.

Christian Post reporter Jon Brown joined the latest edition of "The Inside Story" podcast to discuss his recent interview with Grand Canyon University President Brian Mueller, who says GCU has no intentions of paying the federal government $37.7 million for alleged deceptive advertising practices. 

"The amount of the fine is absolutely ridiculous, but the point is, whether it was one dollar or $38 million, we're not paying a dime," Meuller told Brown. "We are the most transparent institution in the country."
