Gina Welch's first book is "In the land of Believers:
An Outsider's Extraordinary Journey into the Heart of the Evangelical Church"
The book chronicles her two years as part of Thomas Road Baptist Church.
Thomas Road was founded by the late Jerry Falwell, Sr. founder of the Moral Majority.
There are some evangelicals that are more progressive.
