Charles Templeton, Canadian Journalist and Broadcaster

 A former evangelist and close colleague of Billy Graham who has authored the book Farewell to God: My Reasons for
 Rejecting the Christian Faith (Toronto: McClelland & Stewart, Inc.:1996). Templeton pursued a career as a minister and
 evangelist back in the 1940s and 1950s in close collaboration with Billy Graham. However, unlike Graham he retained a strong
 spirit of intellectual inquiry, which led him to investigate more closely the claims of thr Bible. His studies led to doubts, which
 eventually led him to leaving the ministry and the Christian faith. Templeton now describes himself as an agnostic and a
 humanist.

 

If I'm not mistaken he is also the father of DC Comics writer and Artist Ty Templeton
