Author Tim Keller Passes Away At 72

 May 20, 2023

One of America's best-known Christian authors passed away on May 19 at his home as a result of pancreatic cancer.

Tim Keller was 72 years old.

He had been diagnosed with cancer in May of 2020.

Keller was the founding pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City. Bruce Terrell released a statement on behalf of the Redeemer Network Leadership Team:

It is with a heavy heart that I write today to inform you that Redeemer Presbyterian Church founder and long-time senior pastor, Tim Keller, passed away this morning at age 72, trusting in the sure and certain hope of the resurrection.

"We are forever grateful for his leadership, heart, and dedication to sharing the love of Christ with others," Teller concluded.

The death wasn't a total surprise, as Keller's son Michael said earlier in the week that Keller was "being discharged from the hospital to receive hospice care at home."
