Request Tom to Speak

Single Talks

Dr. Woodward graduated from Princeton University and received his Th.M. in Systematic Theology from Dallas Theological Seminar and his Ph.D. from the University of South Florida.  He and his wife, Normandy, were missionaries to the Dominican Republic prior to him becoming the Executive Director of the C.S. Lewis Society and the Chairman of the Bible and Theology Department at Trinity College of Florida (Billy Graham’s alma mater).  He has authored numerous books, is an accomplished radio, campus, conference, church speaker and debater, and is fluent in Spanish.

His talks concentrate on seeing God in Science and in studying the deeper Christian life as modeled in the writings of C.S. Lewis. Tom is especially burdened for atheistic or agnostic college students.  He tailors his talks to the age, intellect, and spiritual level of the listener and often uses props and video clips to connect with the audience.  Topics can be adapted to fill the available venue and the time slot – as short as 25 minutes or as long as 50 minutes.
