The ex-vangelicals

How we got here: There were always diverse views among evangelicals, but “Trump’s four years in the White House made painfully clear just how deep these divisions ran,” said author Kristin Du Mez.

Du Mez wrote the 2020 book “Jesus and John Wayne,” which chronicles ideas about masculinity in the white Evangelical church and politics. It has sold more than 100,000 copies.

The differences within evangelicalism “can no longer be papered over with the kind of religious language of ‘we’re all in this together,'” Du Mez told Axios.
