October Speaking Schedule

Lots of speaking coming up!  Come if you can!  Bring along those who have doubts about the truth of the gospels, who have swallowed bilge from the likes of Bart Ehrman, Richard Carrier, or Reza Aslan, or friends who would like to hear something important from a novel perspective. 

The initial tour for my new book, Jesus is No Myth: The Fingerprints of God on the Gospels, is set to kick off in full fury early next month. I'm planning to travel to some 20 states during October, speaking in (at least) Washington, North Dakota, Minnesota (probably), Ohio, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and South Carolina.  (Then into the South in November.)  Almost all of these events are open to the public!  I'll be pleased to meet some of you before or after, get a bite to eat, sign books, and chat.   

I'm also planning to visit top universities along the way, which I'll list below the schedule.  Since I'm going to these schools anyway to conduct research, I'd also love to share on campus, even to small groups on a last-minute basis, regardless of funds.  I probably won't pass up a meal if invited!  (I am also looking for places to stay some nights.)
