Jesus and John Wayne by Kristin Kobes Du Mez
"This book was authored by a woman who attended my high school and college one generation prior to me. Needless to say, it was incredible to see many of my own thoughts and experiences expressed so eloquently and bolstered by troves of research."
Jesus and John Wayne by Kristin  Kobes Du Mez
"This book was so hard for me to read because it brought back so many memories of the abuses I and my family have suffered at the hands of the evangelicals. I am thankful that it has been written. The world needs to know the truth. I highly recommend " Read more of this review »
Jesus and John Wayne by Kristin Kobes Du Mez
"I don't ever remember reading a history book this fast. Having grown up in an evangelical, nondenominational church and now about to complete my MDiv degree in hopes to become a Presbyterian pastor, this was a difficult, eye-opening, disturbing but e" Read more of this review »

"Meticulous and powerful

This is the most important book I have read this year. I am recommending it to everyone I know. The research is thorough. The writing is clear and elegant. Most important, though, is the message. I know far too many people who " Read more of this review »

Quotes by Kristin Kobes Du Mez  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Christian nationalism—the belief that America is God’s chosen nation and must be defended as such—serves as a powerful predictor of intolerance toward immigrants, racial minorities, and non-Christians.”
Kristin Kobes DuMez, Jesus and John Wayne: How White Evangelicals Corrupted a Faith and Fractured a Nation

“Evangelicals hadn’t betrayed their values. Donald Trump was the culmination of their half-century-long pursuit of a militant Christian masculinity. He was the reincarnation of John Wayne, sitting tall in the saddle, a man who wasn’t afraid to resort to violence to bring order, who protected those deemed worthy of protection, who wouldn’t let political correctness get in the way of saying what had to be said or the norms of democratic society keep him from doing what needed to be done. Unencumbered by traditional Christian virtue, he was a warrior in the tradition (if not the actual physical form) of Mel Gibson’s William Wallace. He was a hero for God-and-country Christians in the line of Barry Goldwater, Ronald Reagan, and Oliver North, one suited for Duck Dynasty Americans and American Christians. He was the latest and greatest high priest of the evangelical cult of masculinity.”
Kristin Kobes DuMez, Jesus and John Wayne: How White Evangelicals Corrupted a Faith and Fractured a Nation

“The products Christians consume shape the faith they inhabit. Today, what it means to be a “conservative evangelical” is as much about culture as it is about theology.”
Kristin Kobes Du Mez, Jesus and John Wayne: How White Evangelicals Corrupted a Faith and Fractured a Nation
