Dr. Grant, where can the work of this poet be found? Has his verse ever been published in a collection? I've seen him quoted before, in several of your books, but also recently in a John Piper book and in a Chuck Swindoll book. I may have run across him somewhere else too.

I was wondering the same thing. Where can Tristan Gylberd's poetry be found?

I share several things in common with Mr. Gylberd. I was born in Texas in the mid-50s. I have written poetry and am an educator. I may not be a critic, but am often noted for being critical. And I am obscure, and while I may not be often quoted, I quote others quite a bit. Having met Herr Gylberd on several occasions, I am always struck by how reclusive he is.

I would have to agree with Mr. House that Mr. Gylberd is quite the solitary soul. I had no idea he showed up in Piper and Swindol books? Have you heard from him lately?

The quotes I have seen are quite pithy. Does he have a book?

In "Going Somewhere", a rare copy of Tristan Glyberd's poetry is found in NYC by Dan!

The third time around while going somewhere in trial and error, I realized that the dispossessed and the quick and the dead were in the shadow of the plenty.

Anyway, I know that I must carry a big stick or be taken by the lost causes of the garden graces and thus be caught up in a divine conspiracy.

Is all of this just a grand illusion?

Standfast,
