About this author

Kevin Roose is a 21-year-old senior at Brown University, a freelance journalist, and the author of "The Unlikely Disciple: A Sinner's Semester at America's Holiest University." During his sophomore year at Brown, Kevin left to spend a semester "abroad" at Liberty University, Jerry Falwell's "Bible Boot Camp" for young evangelicals, in order to learn about the lives of his Christian peers by living, studying, and praying among them. Kevin is a regular columnist for the Brown Daily Herald and a contributor to Esquire, SPIN, and mental_floss.
