i recently purchased the unlikely disciple, by kevin roose (because he interned with a.j. jacobs, who wrote the year of living biblically, and loved how jacobs treated christians in his book). roose writes about a semester spent at liberty university, undercover. i haven’t read the book yet, but salon.com published an excerpt from the book about roose’s experience, with a dozen fellow liberty students, of doing ‘cold-turkey evangelism’ in daytona during spring break. it’s an interesting read, and i like the compassion he seems to have for his fellow students.
i’ve never been much of a fan of this brand of evangelism; but both articles are worth the read, and i really appreciate greg’s heart.
