I agree with the other one star reviewer. Dark is part of the "relevance" movement that invaded many mainstream denominations in the 90's. It was an overtly liberal phenomenon that promoted a disdain for traditional institutions. Instead of letting the gospel speak for itself, the message needed to be modernized for largely teenage consumption. I am certain that Dark's students idolized him.
Dark is certainly well read within the context of pop culture, but he ends up being to theology what Dr Seuss is to great literature.
If you love John Stewart, Stephen Colbert, and David Letterman, you will think this is the most profoundly spiritual book you have ever read.
