I didn’t know him personally, but I was a follower of his original website From the Wilderness since its inception in the late 90’s. He was a brilliant, flawed, tortured man with a message that is too hard to hear (i.e., understand and act on) for most.
May he rest in peace. He deserves it, for he found none in this life.
Words can’t describe how sad I am right now. He will be missed, both by his friends and family, and by those like me who heard the message.
