About this Event

Join Beth Allison Barr and Kristin Kobes Du Mez for a conversation about their books, The Making of Biblical Womanhood and Jesus and John Wayne, facilitated by Scot McKnight, co-author with his daughter, Laura Barringer of A Church Called Tov. Barr and Du Mez use their expertise as historians to trace the historical events and artifacts that have influenced both ancient and recent Christian culture to warp understandings of what is, in fact, biblical and Christian. This conversation will cover:

“Biblical” womanhood and manhood

Purity culture, John Wayne, and other evangelical phenomenon

#ChurchToo and abuse scandals in churches and ministries

Christian nationalism

Barr, Du Mez, and McKnight will bring to bear the collective wisdom of their identities as historians, a pastor’s wife, an expert on gender studies and politics, and a New Testament scholar. This conversation will undoubtably ask, answer, and advance important questions and conversation on these topics.
