‘He changed my life’: 5 remembrances of Tim Keller

Bethany Joy Lenz

Actress and filmmaker Bethany Joy Lenz took to Facebook when news first broke of Keller being moved to hospice care on Thursday, crediting Keller with having kept her from leaving Christianity.

“This man changed my life,” she stated. “The only reason I’m still a Christian today is because, after many years of faith being used against me as a tool of manipulation, Tim Keller taught me how to re-build my faith using reason and logic.”

“A belief system that fully engages my mind while still leaving room for wonder and mystery.  I am so much more confident and secure in my faith now than I’ve ever been because of Tim Keller’s teachings.”

Lenz went on to describe Keller as “a trustworthy, humble, rational and compassionate voice that God once used to bring me out of a pit of despair, walk me through intense healing and into the glorious freedom of Christ.”

“I will forever be grateful for the day I walked into Redeemer Presbyterian church on the Upper East Side in 1999,” she added. "Thank you for everything, Tim."
