Dr. Kristin Kobes Du Mez - Jesus and John Wayne, an interview

This week Jerran and Casey welcome on, as our very first guest, Dr. Kristin Kobes Du Mez, author of the excellent recent work on masculinity, militarism and the evangelical church. The book is called Jesus and John Wayne: How White Evangelicals Corrupted a Faith and Fractured a Nation. We explore the personal ramifications of this important work as well as getting a better understanding of how the White Evangelical church has shaped this moment in time. 
Dr. Kristen Kobez Du Mez is a professor of History and Gender Studies at Calvin University. She holds a PhD from the University of Notre Dame and her research focuses on the intersection of gender, religion, and politics. She has written for the Washington Post, Religion News Service, Christianity Today, Christian Century, and Religion & Politics, and has been interviewed on NPR, CTV, the CBC, and by CNN, the New York Times, the Economist, the Christian Post, PBS News Hour, and the AP, among other outlets, and she blogs at Patheos’s Anxious Bench.
