Co-founder of the Gospel Coalition, Pastor Tim Keller has shared a positive update about his cancer treatment. In an instagram post, Keller has announced that his body has responsed well to chemotherapy.
"Thank you all so much for continuing to pray for me during my treatment for pancreatic cancer," the 70-year-old pastor wrote on social media Friday.
"God has been very gracious in answering those prayers, and my most recent CT scans on Monday showed more improvement. My doctor is both surprised and delighted that I am able to tolerate the continued high level of chemotherapy with relatively few side effects (they are there, but not as debilitating as they could be) as well as having such a strong therapeutic response."
in June, Keller revealed that he has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in its early stages. At the time, he asked supporters to pray for God "to use medical means or his direct intervention to make the cancer regress to the point of vanishing."
Keller is also the founder of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City, and author of many books on apologetics and the Christian faith, such as The Reason for God, The Prodigal God, Counterfeit Gods, The Meaning of Marriage, Encounters with Jesus, and Walking with God Through Pain and Suffering. He co-founded Redeemer City to City, a church-planting organisation focused on urban ministry in cities around the world.
