Jesus and John Wayne with Kristin Kobes Du Mez


From Kristin Kobes Du Mez, a professor of history at Calvin University, Jesus and John Wayne has been called a sweeping account of the last 75 years of white evangelicalism, showing how American evangelicals have worked for decades to replace the Jesus of the Gospels with an idol of rugged masculinity and Christian nationalism. This session is part of our "A More Perfect Union" track, supported in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities.
