An author of numerous books about faith in an urban culture, Keller is a pioneer for what is called the new urban Christian movement. He has helped launch over 250 churches in 49 cities, according to his website biography, in his role as chairman of Redeemer City to City, an organization focused on urban culture. 

Here are 10 memorable quotes from Keller, many from his blog, about heaven:

“All we know is that through God’s mercy salvation is available to all through Jesus Christ alone. No one, but no one, will be unfairly excluded.” – Blog post “Pharisees With Low Standards”

“The resurrection of Christ assures us that God will redeem not just souls but bodies, and will bring about a new heavens and new earth.” – Blog post “The Resurrection and Christian Mission”

“In a little while you will meet in heaven; he will then be dearer to you than the nearest friend you have upon earth is to you now.” – Blog post “How Do You Take Criticism of Your Views?” 

“The image of the altar also represents a heart dedicated—“sanctified”—offered to God in usefulness and service.” – Blog post “The Altar”

“If you go to hell, it's your fault. You deserve it. But if you get the blessings of God, there's no way you deserve it.” – Keller in closing remarks at The Gospel Coalition National Conference, as quoted by Christian Daily

“All the life, joy, love, strength, and meaning we have looked for and longed for is found in his face - that is, in his favor, presence, fellowship, and pleasure.” – Blog post “The Importance of Hell”  

“He is not merely ‘in heaven looking down.’ Rather, he is now in a position to exercise power in the world and history.” – Blog post “The Resurrection and Christian Mission” 

“But the Christian promise is not that every chapter in history will be better than the first but that in the end “all things will work together for good.” God will eventually bring us not to a disembodied afterlife, but a renewed material universe with resurrected bodies.” – Blog post “When Hope and History Rhym”

“It takes faith to doubt Christianity, because any worldview (including secularism or skepticism) is based on assumptions.” – Blog post “How the Gospel Changes our Apologetics, Part 2”
