This week on my blog I'm giving away 5 copies of The Unlikely Disciple by Kevin Roose. To enter leave a comment on the contest entry with your PBS ID or other contact info.  Winner will be picked Thursday, April 2. Good luck!


Raised in a secular, liberal home, Kevin Roose had little contact with the Religious Right. When he happened upon a group of students from Jerry Falwell's Liberty University one day, he found himself standing over a massive cultural divide. Rather than brush these conservative students aside however, Roose decided to become one of them. Unlikely Disciple is the story of Roose's journey into a semester at Liberty University where he attempts to connect with the evangelical community by experiencing their world first-hand. Liberty U takes him to class, choir practice, an evangelical hip-hop concert and to Daytona Beach, where he learns how to convert bar-hopping co-eds to Christianity. Thought-provoking, hilariously told, yet respectful, Roose's embedded report from the front lines of the culture war will inspire and entertain believers and non-believers alike.
