One of Charles Stanley’s personal items sold on eBay by his grandson has been returned to the family by the buyer.
Stanley, a respected preacher and founder of InTouch Ministries, died last month at the age of 90.
Following his death, his grandson, Matt Brodersen, started an auction on eBay for some items belonging to Stanley.
They included a coin collection, a pocket watch engraved with the letters “CFS” for “Charles Frazier Stanley”, and a signed portrait of the late pastor.
After coming under heavy criticism, he initially defended the auction, saying that he “has bills to pay” and needed the money.
He then apologised for his actions but kept the eBay auction open.
