The Holy Post

The last five or six years have been rough for many thoughtful faithful Christians. The embrace of Trump and Trumpism, the rise of ethnic nationalism and xenophobia, conspiracy theories and abuse scandals have rocked the church. Many have walked away in disgust. Some have spoken out and paid the price and yet, rather than walking away, they have remained committed to Christ and his church. One of those people is Kristen Du Mez, a New York Times best selling author and professor of History at Calvin University. Her book, "Jesus and John Wayne" made headlines by examining how toxic masculinity and misogyny within white evangelicalism has affected American history and culture. The reaction to Du Mez's book within White Evangelicalism was swift and ugly. Skye sat down with Kristin Du Mez to hear her story and find out why, through it all, she's still following Jesus.
