This next week I’m heading out to San Diego for a debate on March 24 with a Catholic Apologist named Jimmy Akin on the question of whether the Gospels of the New Testament are historically reliable.  I’ve never debated a Catholic apologist before!  This should be fun.

I also (obviously) haven’t done a live event in over two years.   So, this will be interesting as well as fun.

The event will be live streamed if you’re interested, and even if you’re not.  Here’s the announcement, with ticket information, in case you might want to attend or listen in: Jimmy Akin vs Bart Ehrman – Campaign (

MOREOVER (only distantly conntected):  It turns out I’ll be free for breakfast that morning.  I’m happy to do a blog event ((as in live, and in person!) if anyone feels like shlepping out to Del Mar.   I’m thinkin’ March 24 at 8:00 am.  Anyone interested?  Just send me an email at [email protected]   There’d be no obligation other than showing up, ordering what you want, eating what you order, and … talking.  I can go till 10:00 am.  Let me know!
