Religion is one of the most-abused words in the lexicon. Cultural critic David Dark restores it to its true complexity in this smart and warm little book. Your religion, argues Dark, is simply the set of non-provable stories and ideas that you love and live by—what he calls your “attention collection.”

Dark’s loving description of his attention collection will inspire readers both in and outside the church to be more honest and articulate about theirs. Everybody’s got one, and it’s mere habit that causes us to label only some of these “religious.” This is the book to give to those friends who love hard, fight for lost causes, dress up as TV characters, or practice “mindfulness,” but who think you’re weird for going to church.
