The Art of Faith, the Faith of Art: An Evening with Christian Wiman
Poet, essayist and Yale Divinity School professor Christian Wiman will be featured at an event called The Art of Faith, the Faith of Art on Friday, March 9 at 7:30 pm in the Sanctuary of First Church Berkeley. He will speak and then be in conversation with First Churchs Public Theologian in Residence and poet Marvin K. White. The evening is co-sponsored by All Souls Episcopal Parish.
Christian Wiman is the author, editor, or translator of ten books, including his essays My Bright Abyss: Meditation of a Modern Believer, and his poetry collection Every Riven Thing. From 2003 until 2013 he was the editor of Poetry magazine, the premier magazine for poetry in the English-speaking world.
Mr. Wiman has written for the New Yorker, the New York Times Book Review, the Atlantic Monthly, and numerous other publications. His particular interests include modern poetry, the language of faith, accidental theology (that is, theology conducted by unexpected means), and what it means to be a Christian intellectual in a secular culture.
