Summary
Who are we? Why are we here? Where do we go when we die? With more than fifty novels to his name, and hundreds of millions of copies sold, few writers have spent more time contemplating these questions than Stephen King. Yet despite being one of the most widely read authors of all time, King is woefully understudied. America’s Dark Theologian is the first in-depth investigation into how King treats religion in his horror fiction
