Dear Friend of the EPS,
The Evangelical Philosophical Society faces unprecedented opportunities and challenges.
We are an increasingly international organization, with philosophers from over 100 countries visiting our website, and many participants outside the U.S. attending our national conferences in person. Our plenary speakers have included the very best from around the world, such as Alvin Plantinga, Dallas Willard, Paul Helm, Richard Swinburne and, most recently, Alister McGrath. Our journal, Philosophia Christi, continues to explore cutting edge issues in philosophy of religion, meta-ethics, and the primary questions of epistemology and metaphysics. Our website offers themed discussions of timely topics, dozens of author interviews, showcasing the latest publications and events for Christian philosophers. And we have allied with Ratio Christi so that Christian philosophy has an impact on campuses around the U.S. and beyond.
But the fact is that we are increasingly dependent on your support. We face increased costs in producing our journal, growing our website, and running our national academic and apologetics conferences, and we are simply not able to maintain our operations solely on the basis of membership dues and subscriptions. If the EPS is to continue to thrive and prosper, we welcome all of our friends and supporters to become stakeholders. Remember we are in this together—collaborators in the project of expanding the influence of evangelical Christian thought in the academy. Our operational effectiveness is crucially dependent on your gifts of time, talent and money.
We need our friends and supporters to give generously in 2017 in order to keep moving forward and to meet our current and ongoing challenges. If the work of the EPS is valuable to you, please give generously!
I am of course asking everyone on the EPS Executive Committee to be part of this effort, and we urge you to join us. We believe that the work we do as Christian philosophers matters: every web article posted, every essay and book published, every paper given, and every conference held is an opportunity to build together God's Kingdom as we seek to present the brilliance and beauty of Christ in the academy, the church, and the world.
