Parnassus Books welcomes David Dark as he discusses and signs Life’s Too Short to Pretend You’re Not Religious.
In his latest book, David Dark defines religion as the controlling story in which people are blessed and cursed to find themselves. He writes that your religion is what you do with yourself, your resources and your passions, and it matters deeply. Life’s Too Short to Pretend You’re Not Religious calls you to become more fully aware of your religion, making it the story of your life.
