9780156034999: God's Harvard: A Christian College on a Mission to Save America

Since 2000, America’s most ambitious young evangelicals have been making their way to Patrick Henry College, a small Christian school just outside the nation’s capital. Most of them are homeschoolers whose idealism and discipline put the average American teenager to shame. And God’s Harvard grooms these students to be the elite of tomorrow, dispatching them to the front lines of politics, entertainment, and science, to wage the battle to take back a godless nation. Hanna Rosin spent a year and a half embedded at the college, following the students from the campus to the White House, Congress, conservative think tanks, Hollywood, and other centers of influence. Her account captures this nerve center of the evangelical movement at a moment of maximum influence and also of crisis, as it struggles to avoid the temptations of modern life and still remake the world in its own image.

From the Back Cover:

ADVANCE PRAISE FOR GOD’S HARVARD
 
"Hanna Rosin has gotten incredible access to a subculture that is fast becoming a mighty political force. This insightful book reveals the new face of the Christian right: highly educated young people brilliantly trained to advance their worldview into mainstream America. Rosin's frank and candid portraits of these fiercely dedicated youth leave the reader wondering: What will my world be like when these kids are in charge of it?"―Rachel Grady, director and producer, Jesus Camp and The Boys of Baraka
 
“Hanna Rosin's wonderful book is as insightful as it is witty. Rarely is a book on such an important subject such a joy to read.”--Alan Wolfe, Boston College
 
“I believe deeply in this amazing book by Hanna Rosin. With clarity, honesty, and equal measures of surprised delight and foreboding, she takes us into a new world of Christian higher education that few outsiders knew existed but the entire nation will be dealing with for decades to come.”--David Maraniss, author of First in His Class: A Biography of Bill Clinton
 
“By reporting among America’s young Christian elite with curiosity, empathy, and persistence, Hanna Rosin has produced a book that is humane, surprising, and very unnerving. This is journalism at its best – never preachy, but honest and revealing.”―Steve Coll, author of Ghost Wars: The Secret History of the CIA, Afghanistan, and Bin Laden, from the Soviet Invasion to September 10, 2001
