Bookshelf Award Alert: Frontrunner for 2009 Book of the Year?!

It may be too early to tell, but this book will be hard to beat! Kevin Roose, a liberal, nominally Quaker student at Brown University, transfers to Jerry Falwell’s Liberty University to engage in cross-cultural study. Just how wide is the God divide? What are we to think of the next generation of culture warriors? Roose has a good story to tell, and he’s a great story teller. He offers a very insightful look into the world of fundamentalist/evangelical Christians and draws some surprising conclusions in his The Unlikely Disciple: A Sinner's Semester at America's Holiest University. More on this book to come!
