Inside Higher Ed: Undercover Student at Liberty U.

A new book, The Unlikely Disciple: A Sinner’s Semester at America’s Holiest University, details the experience of Kevin Roose at Liberty University. Roose was an unlikely Liberty student because he was there on leave from Brown University to explore an institution with different values. As detailed in The Daily Beast, Liberty — known under its founder, the late Rev. Jerry Falwell, for taking on critics — is taking a mellow response to the book. University officials have no plans to promote the book, nor to ban it.
