passing the hat

First of all, those hats:

This is a guy who is a world-class apologist and a brilliant thinker, and he's wearing these hats. On YouTube. I just can't think of anything quite edifying to say about that.

But I can say this: my friend johnMark has started an auction for a big stack of great books, the proceeds of which will got to, and I think it's a worthy cause. Go bid, pay if you win, and help support the ministry of James White proclaim the offense of the Gospel to the ends of the Earth.

And by "offense of the Gospel", I don't mean "teaching people to wear those hats".

Seriously now -- the auction is real. Only my jokes are fiction.
