David Dark teaches at both Belmont University and the Tennessee Prison for Women. He and his wife, Sarah Masen, live in Nashville with their children. Dark uses music, literature, film, and politics to encourage conversation about the intersection of Christianity and being American at this point in history. Dark wrote a piece on Chance the Rapper’s newest album,Coloring Book, and had it featured on MTV’s online news page. Author of The Sacredness of Questioning Everything, Life’s too Short to Pretend You’re Not Religious, and others, he recognizes the increasing polarization among Christians when we ignore the thoughts of those around us and instead get caught up in our own opinions.
