David Dark is an American writer, the author of The Sacredness of Questioning Everything, Everyday Apocalypse: The Sacred Revealed in Radiohead, The Simpsons, and Other Pop Culture Icons and The Gospel According To America: A Meditation on a God-blessed, Christ-haunted Idea, which was included in Publishers’ Weekly’s top religious books of 2005. Following years of teaching high school English, he is now a doctoral candidate at Vanderbilt University. A resident of Nashville, Tennessee, he is married to singer/songwriter Sarah Masen.
Dark has appeared on C-SPAN’s Book-TV and in an award-winning documentary, Marketing the Message.
Eugene Peterson stated, "David Dark is my favorite critic of the people’s culture of America and the Christian faith. He brings a deep sense of reverence to every book he reads, every song he hears, every movie he sees, but it is a discerning reverence—attentive to truth and Jesus wherever he comes on them. He is also a reliable lie detector. And not a dull sentence in the book."
