The Unlikely Disciple by Kevin Roose

The Unlikely Disciple: A Sinner's Semester at America's Holiest University
I was very impressed by this book.  Kevin is a smart young man and he wrote a thoughtful and thought provoking book about his experience spending a semester "undercover" at Liberty college - an evangelical fundamentalist Christian college.  I enjoyed Kevin's frankness in sharing how he realized that the students at Liberty, fundamentalist evangelicals that they were, were still very much like the liberal students at Brown.
Kevin shares his discomfort with the rampant homophobia at Liberty, and how he finds that he begins to pray and actually enjoys it.
