Great Regulars: Christian Wiman is a believer from a class

of people who, in the minds of some, aren't supposed to believe. He's a poet--editor of Poetry magazine, a job he'll be leaving in June--a leading intellect, an artist. He's also facing cancer. He believes in God and, in My Bright Abyss, seeks to portray what that's like as of 2013 if you want to be an intelligent, aware, non-self-deluding, tough-minded, free-speaking person here and now.

from John Timpane: The Philadelphia Inquirer: A poetic, creative, realistic look at God
