Product Description

When religion refuses to tolerate questions, objections, or differences of opinion, it obstructs our ability to think, empathize, and live authentic lives of genuine engagement. In The Sacredness of Questioning Everything, David Dark notes that the freedom to question is an indispensable and sacred practice absolutely vital to the health of our communities. The God we see in the Bible is a God who not only encourages questions, but demands them! Take a moment to reflect upon Dark's thoughtful engagement of uncertainty and see why people of faith have nothing to fear in bringing their most earnest questions to God.

Publisher's Description

The freedom to question—asking and being asked—is an indispensable and sacred practice that is absolutely vital to the health of our communities. According to author David Dark, when religion won’t tolerate questions, objections, or differences of opinion, and when it only brings to the table threats of excommunication, violence, and hellfire, it does not allow people to discover for themselves what they truly believe. The God of the Bible not only encourages questions; the God of the Bible demands them. If that were not so, we wouldn’t live in a world of such rich, God-given complexity in which wide-eyed wonder is part and parcel of the human condition. Dark contends that it’s OK to question life, the Bible, faith, the media, emotions, language, government—everything. God has nothing to hide. And neither should people of faith. The Sacredness of Questioning offers a wide-ranging, insightful, and often entertaining discussion that draws on a variety of sources, including religious texts and popular culture. It is a book that readers will likely cherish—and recommend—for years to come.

Author Bio

David Dark is the critically acclaimed author of Everyday Apocalypse and The Gospel According to America and is an educator who is currently pursuing his PhD in Religious Studies at Vanderbilt University. He has had articles published in Paste, Oxford American, Books and Culture, Christian Century, among others. A frequent speaker, Dark has also appeared on C-SPAN’s Book-TV and in an award-winning documentary, Marketing the Message. He lives with his singer-songwriter wife, Sarah Masen, and their three children in Nashville.

Publisher's Weekly

“Questions make new worlds possible,” asserts author Dark (The Gospel According to America), a key premise in this thought-provoking meander of reflections on, and challenges for, living an engaged life of authentic Christianity. The well-read author draws insight and inspiration from a broad range of sources—Shakespeare, Ursula Le Guin, Johnny Cash and James Joyce—in calling into question the status quo, received history and conventional theology. Dark brings to his writing the kind of energy, offbeat enthusiasm and commitment to relevance that must make his high school English classes exciting places for inquiry and exploration. That each page yokes keen observation to practical application with wisdom and compassion inclines the reader to forgive the book's bewildering organization and abstruse section headings. “Questions for further conversation” at the end of each chapter will be useful for groups eager to put Dark's appeals into action. The author's passion for social justice, clarity about the “sacred obligation” of taking nothing at face value and confidence that unsettling questions yield rich rewards for both individuals and communities is convincing and moving.

    James Treakle
    This review was written for The Sacredness of Questioning Everything.
    This book is revolutionary. To cut to the chase, it is the most stirring Christian book I have ever read. It challenges your conception of everything, and does so brilliantly. Author David Dark dares you to take a step back and wonder why you live the way you live. It is an appeal to be spiritually and intellectually honest. It is a challenge to engage the bigger sacred cows of our world and our many religions. Not only is it profound in its pursuit of Christian truth, all people can read and appreciate Dark's insight. If you feel dull and unable to move forward, maybe it's time to question everything. Get this book and spend some time with it.
