"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. At "God's Harvard" they are groomed to become tomorrow's elite. Diplomas in hand, they are dispatched to the front lines of politics, entertainment, and science, where they will lead the battle to take back a godless nation." "Hanna Rosin spent a year and a half embedded at the college, following 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."--BOOK JACKET.… (mere)

Totally disappointed that the information on the school and its students weren't written about without bias and obvious patronizing condescension.

She poked fun at homeschoolers, Christians, Conservatives and everything that obviously doesn't fit her own opinion. Little House on the Prairie, whitewashed brains,and every Christian goes online to look up opinions.

This book was nothing more than a long version of a second rate op-ed. Such a waste of paper. Thankfully I borrowed it from the library, otherwise I would have put it to good use as kindle.

I wanted to learn more about the school and what I learned was the opinion of the author.

Patrick Henry University - breeding place for the next conservative government -- at least, that's the plan. The students there are determined, driven, and intend to change the course of current American politics and government.

I found this book to be very informative and in some ways entertaining -- but really, a little bit depressing. I am a conservative myself, but I can't quite countenance the extreme idea(l)s driven into the student's every cell. The intention of the founder seems to me to be a good one, but he seems to have gone way over the edge in protecting his students from the evil ways of the world.

That said, the education itself seems fairly good, given the good internships these kids seem to obtain. But I question whether or not any of the graduates have a balanced enough experience of and view of life as it really is, sex, rock and roll, TV, homosexuality, miniskirts and all, to be truly able to change the country. In the end, I almost hope they don't succeed in doing so.

Very interesting look into Patrick Henry College, the institution of higher education that was formed with the intent of shaping conservative leaders for political advancement in Washington DC. The author served as religion reporter for The Washington Post, so she has professional credentials but be warned that there are times when her personal views insert themselves in her handling of the subject. Still its a worthwhile and thought-provoking read. ( )

God's Harvard recounts Hanna Rosin's experiences at Patrick Henry College, an evangelical Christian school with an emphasis on careers in politics. I was expecting something along the lines of Bob Jones University, but most of the staff and students from PHC come across as being very intelligent and self-aware as Rosin writes them. This is not a book intended to mock the evangelical Christian right, only to explore their fascinating and minority lifestyles. A good read ( )
