Hello, Friends —
It seems spring has already come to New York! The weather has been glorious and while running in Central Park the other day I saw crocuses! I also bumped into and had a conversation with the Barbara Feldon, who played Agent 99 on tv’s Get Smart!
This Monday I had the pleasure of speaking at Rutgers University (thanks to their Ratio Christi chapter there) on the correlation between science and faith. I hugely enjoyed the Q&A time in particular; both believers and skeptics posed genuinely fascinating questions.
Next week, March 16th, I’ll be in Cincinnati, speaking at the University of Cincinnati at noon and at Kenwood Baptist Church that evening. If you live in the area, please come!
Tickets to our May 3rd, NYC Socrates in the City event with Larry Taunton talking about his stunning book, The Faith of Christopher Hitchens, are going fast! We have fewer than 100 tickets left, so if you’re hoping to come, visit our website to reserve your tickets ASAP! Finally, today and Monday I’m recording the audiobook for my upcoming book If You Can Keep It: the Forgotten Promise of American Liberty. You can pre-order here, and I hope you do! It’s the first book where I’ve recorded the audiobook and I confess, I’m enjoying it!
This week on The Eric Metaxas Show:
For Miracle Monday, Eric conversed with Christy Beam about her family’s mind-boggling experience that was the basis for the book and the forthcoming film, Miracles from Heaven.

National security expert and former member of the Reagan administration, Frank Gaffney discussed radical Islam’s threat to America.
Eric couldn’t resist having a bit of fun with the subject matter when talking with bestselling author (and friend) Sally Lloyd Jones about her new book Skip to the Loo, My Darling.
Eric spoke with Saturday Night Live alumna Victoria Jackson about how she got her big career break on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson.
Then filmmaker Peter Spencer and his daughter, actress Rachel Spencer Hewitt, discussed their powerful film Return to the Hiding Place, about the life of Corrie ten Boom.
