Brian Zahnd, author, founder and lead pastor of Word of Life Church in St. Joseph, Missouri, wrote on Twitter that he has "many thoughts" about Peterson's passing.

"I knew him. He encouraged me in my writing. And he was my role model for doing the work of a pastor in the impossible modern American context," he noted.

"His legacy is incalculable."

Replying to a follow-up post describing the doorways that Peterson opened to the Christian tradition, Zahnd wrote: "Yes. For so many."
