"Kristin Kobes Du Mez takes on [the Religious Right's] version of toxic masculinity in her book Jesus and John Wayne: How White Evangelicals Corrupted a Faith and Fractured a Nation... Du Mez writes from the inside. She was raised in the Christian Reformed Church, a splinter sect of the Dutch Reformed Church." -- Anne Nelson - Times Literary Supplement
