I’m only about 20 pgs in, but this book is pretty amusing, a nice addition to the list of books on evangelical college students by non-evangelicals, academic and non-academic (others being Hanna Rosin’s “God’s Harvard,” Peter Magolda’s “It’s All about Jesus!,” and Paul Bramadat’s “The Church on the World’s Turf”).

I do love Parks and Recreation. I second Questlove on it being the Wu-Tang of comedy.

I would really, really like a grader for my stats class.

the unchosen me

Interview with the very cool and smart Rachelle Winkle-Wagner on her book, the Unchosen Me.  I have yet to read it but she had a great article in the Review of Higher Ed a few months back.  Title reminds me of some of the themes in Abelmann’s book–different population, similar double consciousness.

A follow-up interview with the Time magazine reporter who wrote the article on Willow Creek and race/diversity a few weeks back.
