Using icons from music, literature, film, and politics, David Dark hopes to provide fodder for lively conversation about what it means to be Christian and American in this day and age. The end result of this conversation, Dark hopes, will be a better understanding that "there is a reality more important, more lasting, and more infinite than the cultures to which we belong," the reality of the kingdom of God.

David Dark is Assistant Professor of Religion and the Arts at Belmont University. In addition to writing The Gospel according to America, he is the author of Life’s Too Short to Pretend You’re Not Religious, The Sacredness of Questioning Everything, and Everyday Apocalypse. His work has appeared in Pitchfork, Paste, and America Magazine.

Sojourners(December 2005)"With a palpable love for God and country -- butonly in that order -- this analysis of our peculiar, polarized times sorts through the tangleof sacred and profane in American culture(including politics, film, music, literature, and media) with both affection and searing insight."
