 Grave Error » Walter Kaufmann: The Faith of the Heretic
Kaufmann was a top Nietzsche scholar and philosopher of religion, and I recall having read his following works: Nietzsche: Philosopher, Psychologist, Antichrist; From Shakespeare to Existentialism; Critique of Philosophy and Religion; and the trilogy Discovering the Mind (Goethe, Kant, and Hegel; Nietzsche, Hiedegger, and Buber; and Freud versus Adler and Jung).
Kaufmann was born a Chrisitan in Germany (later emigrating to the US) and rejected Christianity at the age of 12 to become a Jew (only later to discover that all four of his grandparents had been Jewish).
Kaufmann explains his repudiation of Christianity (and basis therefor), and although he finds that the only two compelling religions are Judaism and Buddhism, he ultimately rejects those as well.

 Walter Kaufmann (philosopher) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Kaufmann wrote a good deal on the central European existentialism of Kierkegaard and Karl Jaspers (the French existentialism of Sartre, Gabriel Marcel, and Camus interested him less), editing the anthology Existentialism from Dostoevsky to Sartre.
Kaufmann did much to enhance the respectability of Nietzsche and Hegel studies in the English speaking world.
A curious aspect of Kaufmann's persona was his clear witty English, quite unlike the writings of many of the theologians and continental philosophers that were his academic specialty, especially those who wrote in German.
