One of my core “mentors from afar,” Tim Keller, has died. It feels like such a tremendous loss. Although I did not know him personally, he had a tremendous personal impact on me.

Tim Keller’s preaching and teaching and pastoral posture have helped me profoundly, and formed me deeply. So many times, his writing and preaching steadied my faith and brought me deeper into the beauty of the biblical story.

I give thanks to God for what I know of his life and ministry. Praying for that special peace that comes from the Spirit to comfort him and all his loved ones.
