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.
