Second, Matthew, the SSC’s director, allowed us access to all SSC programs and training. Third, the SSC was geographically proximate to our homes and places of work, giving us easy and frequent access to SSC events.

Viewing a student evangelical subculture through a ritual lens is a unique contribution of this book. Audiences It’s All about Jesus targets multiple audiences—both sacred and secular. For readers unfamiliar with evangelical collegiate organizations and the students they serve, we hope the narratives make the unfamiliar familiar and the dubious obvious. For evangelicals, we first hope that the thickly described narratives make the familiar more familiar and the obvious more obvious. Second, we intend our analyses and findings to make the familiar unfamiliar, the obvious dubious, and the hidden obvious by uncovering the tacit meaning embedded in these familiar but seldom examined subculture rituals.
