We are returning to My Bright Abyss: Meditation of a Modern Believer by poet Christian Wiman. Wiman looks, clear-eyed, at dying and offers this book as a personal record of his leaks of faith, a record of doubt where, mysteriously, deeply buried seeds of belief were rooted. “I never felt the pain of unbelief until I believed. But belief itself is hardly painless…
I knew very well that I believed,” he writes. “I was not at all sure exactly what I believed.”
