Invitation

I will seriously consider any opportunity to present Christianity as true, rational, and pertinent to life before any audience of unbelievers. Of course, I have a day job (and work part-time above that), but this is my calling and passion. Thus, I make this appeal. Contact me if you have any ideas. I have no agent and often speak for no pay if it is appropriate.

I wrote to you several months back to see if you'd be interested in speaking in Buffalo, NY. You said at that time you were charging a certain amount. Have you changed your policy on this in some way?

I said "I often speak for no pay if it is appropriate." This means for local venues. I cannot afford to travel across the country for no honorarium.

Tom Wanchick said...

Oh, obviously. I just meant on top of the travel costs.

Doug Groothuis said...

I need travel costs and an honorarium to take several days away from home and work to speak somewhere.

Tom Wanchick said...

Totally understandable. For a second there, I saw a ray of hope! But we'll have to wait. You're definitely on our list for someday.

Would you be willing to participate in a formal debate? If so, what topics specifically would you consider debating?

Doug Groothuis said...

I have done some debates, but the problem is that they take a tremendous amount of work. Since I already work overtime, it is difficult to do many of these, particularly before I finish my mammath apologetics book. But email me if you have something to think about doing.
