The Unlikely Disciple

Filed under: books, church, politics, video — mete23 @ 10:13 pm

Kevin Roose was a sophomore when he decided to transfer from Brown University to Liberty University, the world’s largest Christian evangelical university. He went to Liberty with assumptions but found out that Christians were normal so he wrote a book about his experience there. The book is titled The Unlikely Disciple: A Sinner’s Semester at America’s Holiest College.

He explains everything in the video so I’ll just let you watch and judge it for yourself.

I think it’s looney that he actually enrolled himself into Liberty University. That definitely took some major courage. (No rated R movies?!)  I am not sales pitching this book.  I just think it’s good that he had some of his questions answered and some assumptions cleared up. That’s not to say that fanatical Christians do not exist (unfortunately) but at least he tried to show that Christians were not as polarized in political beliefs as popular media portrayed them to be.

Whatever, people need to differentiate between who God really is and people’s interpretations of who God should be.
