    Healed, whole, no longer seeing through a glass dimly, in the presence of the one he faithfully proclaimed.

  2. Captain Kevin says:

    Of course there would be a classy, heartfelt response from Beth Moore.

  3. Michael says:

    CK,

    I hope to eat cornbread with Beth Moore in the new heavens and new earth…love that woman.

  4. Captain Kevin says:

    For many years, I knew who she was, due to her popularity, but never paid attention to her, other than little snippets. But the more I see and hear as of late causes me to have a huge appreciation for her. May her tribe increase.

    Michael,

    Me too!

  6. Michael says:

    CK, Uncle Buck,

    I know little about her theology or teachings…I’ve just watched her stand for the soul of the church with such grace…grace I don’t possess in equal measure.

    I also noted how she mourned the loss of her dog and knew this was my sister in Christ…

    Tim Keller will be missed as the voice of sanity in our politically divided landscape.
    I am glad that he went home quickly. Cancer, as many have said, is not a disease for sissies.

    Michael
    I hope to have a shot of Tequilla with Beth!

    He will be missed. Glad we had him while we did. The words of Joni Mitchell in her song “Big Yellow Taxi” kinda resonate with me “don’t it always seem to go that you don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone”

    We have his writings for which we are thankful.

    When I left the company (CC), I was really hungry for teaching that was outside CC circles. Through an interesting set of events I was introduced to the teaching of Ravi Zacharias and I listened to every podcast that I could get my hands on. When I finished those I found Tim Keller and listened to everything I could find in addition to reading several of his books. I am incredibly grateful for his life and ministry…he will be greatly missed.

    His Mantle has fallen on Jon Tyson (at least partially, at most in double portion). If you haven’t heard him, you’re in for a refreshing spring.

  13. N.S. says:

    Check out his Series “converting the church” and prepare for some incredible healing, especially for former CC-ers

    Bob1,

    TK was articulate and tuned in ot the world in which we live. He know how to take God’s truth and apply it to a world that most evangelicals have fled-the city. There are more of his books that i need to read.

    A truly inspiring story about Tim Keller from a fellow who calls himself a gay Jewish atheist. We should all be even half as winsome with our faith as Tim was.

    Here’s another story about Tim Keller and what made him tick. Beautiful. Here was a man who knew, and lived, the love and grace of God in Jesus Christ.

    My favorite quote:

    “To understand what it was about Tim Keller, you need to look beyond even just his pastoral calling. You need to see and feel the message that consumed his life. As he would often say: ‘The gospel is that I am so sinful that Jesus had to die for me, yet so loved and valued that Jesus was glad to die for me. This leads to deep humility and deep confidence at the same time. I can’t feel superior to anyone, and yet I have nothing to prove to anyone.’
