Christian wiman the writer of my bright abyss , Christians mother at the age of 14 watched her mother get shot by her father who then turned the gun on himself, and had to raise him. he was diagnosed with cancer in his 30's and I can really relate to him in this sence, I have a rare autoimmune disease that can turn into lucimia and when he is talking about being not poetic but afraid and he also talks about praying and meditating and falling into dispare and I can really relate, I have had a long life of problems that could lead any man to doubt his faith , but I have found my faith gets stronger as I fall into medical issues and it sounds like wiman does aswell. and I am not a poet but I read the story. and his story is a truly inspiring symbolof faith even though he did doubt.
