 … A Poet for ‘Bruised Evangelicals’. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

Although he loved reading and writing poetry, Guite’s primary calling for many years was serving his parish rather than publishing his writing. “He’s an extraordinary pastor,” said Jeremy Begbie, a theologian at Duke Divinity School who studies the intersection of theology and the arts and who taught at the seminary where Guite was a student. “He knows how to read people deeply, and I think that helps the poetry. He understands people’s temptations and desires and all the things that make us a mess.”
