Biography: William Graham Tullian Tchividjian (; born July 13, 1972) is a former pastor of the Presbyterian Church in America denomination, and author of more than a half dozen books about Christianity and current issues, including One Way Love and It is Finished (David C. Cook, 2013 and 2015). A grandson of Christian evangelist Billy Graham, Tchividjian founded an Evangelical Presbyterian Church congregation before being tapped to merge it and become the second senior pastor of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in Fort Lauderdale, Florida (after the church's late founder and longterm leader, D. James Kennedy). Serving 2009–2015, Tchividjian resigned after allegations of an extramarital affair, the first of more than one to which he would admit, the initial admission being sufficient for his being deposed by his denomination as unfit for Christian ministry. In addition to his book publications, Tchividjian blogged for some time for The Gospel Coalition, has contributed to a variety of secular and Christian publications, and has appeared on a variety of major televisions news programs. As of December 2016, the Christian publisher David C. Cook remained committed to publishing Tchividjian's next book.
