From preacher to atheist

The radio segment I referenced in class today (from your backyard, Jon):

"Jerry DeWitt represents a new direction for the atheist movement in the U.S. A  preacher for 25 years before realising he no longer believed in God. After being "outed" as an atheist, he was fired from his job as a building inspector, and lost his house, and his wife. He now speaks across the U.S. about atheism, offering a more understanding approach than angrier atheists like Christopher Hitchens or Sam Harris. He tells his story in a new book called Hope After Faith."
