Unlikely Disciple: A Sinner’s Semester at America’s Holiest University, by Kevin Roose

Some college students spend a semester at the Sorbonne, but Brown University undergraduate, Kevin Roose, choose to spend his semester at Liberty University, the largest Christian fundamentalist University in the United States.  Raised a Quaker in a socially progressive household, Mr. Roose goes undercover and discovers a complex environment making friends and finding his way through a dramatically different world.   Well written, funny, filled with interesting observations, I hope we’ll have the opportunity to be reading other works in the future from this first time author.

You can learn more about the book on the author’s blog, or in this interview on NPR’s All Things Considered.

RATING: * * * A good read
