This Sunday (5/2/21) 3:00-4:15 pm I will be holding a live ABA (“Ask Bart Anything”). It will be over Zoom and will be open to anyone on the planet who wants to come.
The format: I will take live questions both orally and through chats. The questions can be on ANY topic that anyone is interested in. If it is something I don’t know anything about (i.e., most things) or that I would rather not talk about (that little incident when I was 16….) I’ll just say so. I will get through as many questions as I can, answering easy ones briefly and taking as long as I need to deal with more complicated ones. My only request will be that questions are direct questions, not lectures, sermons, admonitions, condemnations, expositions of one’s favorite views, or statements of one’s opinions so the rest of the world can hear and convert.
Interested? There is no need to register, no obligation of any kind. And no cost. Free to all. BUT: If you you are willing and able, I would very much appreciate a donation to the blog. This will be a fundraiser for the blog itself, to help defray some of the blog expenses, which have been increasing, as you can imagine, as we grow. By doing this kind of fundraiser, we can guarantee that every penny that comes into the blog from membership fees and regular donations go directly to the charities we support. Any amount is welcome from $1 to $1 million. But please feel free go to higher. To check out our worthy causes, go here: Charities We Support | The Bart Ehrman Blog.
AND here’s an important additional item. The Highest Donor will be allowed to have a twenty-minute one-on-one back-and-forth with me, just the two of us, immediately after the event itself, to talk about anything she or he would like. If you would like a shot at that, please send an email with your proposed donation to my personal assistant, Diane Pittman, at [email protected]e Bidding will go until Friday midnight.
Whether you bid or not and whether you feel inclined to donate or not, I hope I see a number of you there! This is the link: https://unc.zoom.us/j/93572551914?pwd=aXl0dGNCU0t1S2pLVVEwSTk3d0JiQT09
