Description
How did a libertine who lacks even the most basic knowledge of the Christian faith win 81 percent of the white evangelical vote in 2016? And why have white evangelicals become a presidential reprobate's staunchest supporters? These are among the questions acclaimed historian Kristin Kobes Du Mez asks in Jesus and John Wayne, which explains how white evangelicals have brought us to our fractured political moment. Jesus and John Wayne is a sweeping account of the last seventy-five 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. Evangelical popular culture is teeming with muscular heroes-mythical warriors and rugged soldiers, men like Oliver North, Ronald Reagan, Mel Gibson, and the Duck Dynasty clan, who assert white masculine power in defense of "Christian America." Chief among these evangelical legends is John Wayne, an icon of a lost time when men were uncowed by political correctness, unafraid to tell it like it was, and did what needed to be done. A much-needed reexamination, Jesus and John Wayne explains why evangelicals have rallied behind the least-Christian president in American history and how they have transformed their faith in the process, with enduring consequences for all of us.

      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Is contemporary evangelical Christianity Bible-based, or is it more inspired by pop culture and politics? Narrator Suzie Althens lends a compassionate and thoughtful tone to this new audiobook on how Christian media has informed and changed evangelical Christianity. The author also explores how the politics of the 1970s and beyond have inspired changes to the Christian religion and given rise to the concept of the religious right. Althens's delivery gives the audiobook the feel of watching a "Dateline" episode, and her performance makes the large amounts of information easier to take in. Even when the information presented is horrifying, Althens ensures that the tone of the audiobook remains informative and respectful. V.B. � AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine
