Kathy Keller, wife of author, pastor, theologian, and co-founder of The Gospel Coalition Tim Keller, revealed on social media Saturday that her husband is recovering at home after a stay in the hospital.
"Tim is out of the hospital and recovering at home after complications from his treatment. Please continue to pray during this slow recovery."
In June 2020, Tim Keller revealed that he had been diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. Keller underwent chemotherapy that year and in May 2021 had surgery to remove some nodules. He continued chemotherapy, which was successful in reducing, but not eliminating, his cancer. In June 2022, Keller began an immunotherapy trial at the National Cancer Center in Bethesda, Maryland.
This year in January, Keller shared that he was participating in a drug trial, and in March, he revealed that during the month of April, he would return to "a variation" of the immunotherapy he underwent last summer.
Keller is the founding pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Manhattan and Chairman & Co-Founder of church-planting organisation Redeemer City to City (CTC). He is also the author of the New York Times bestselling The Reason for God and The Prodigal God. His books have sold over 2 million copies and have been translated into 25 languages. Ironically, Keller's book On Death was published only a month before his diagnosis of pancreatic cancer.
Married to Kathy since 1975, the Kellers enjoy a strong ministry partnership. Like her husband, Kathy writes, teaches and speaks at various events. Their book, "The Meaning of Marriage: Facing the Complexities of Commitment with the Wisdom of God," was a bestseller.
