J. Jackson, lead singer and lyricist for ApologetiX (That Christian Parody Band) here!

I hope the Christmas schedule hasn't become to hectic for you!

1. Order the New CD Online at
2. Package Deals Save You Up to $10
3. What's on Each of the Five ApologetiX CDs
4. Vote to Have ApologetiX at Creation 2001

1. ORDER THE NEW CD ONLINE AT APOLOGETIX.COM Well, at last, our new "Spoofernatural" CD is available on the website at! With the holidays slowing down the U.S. Mail, I can't guarantee that if you order, you'll receive it by Christmas, but I can tell you that your order will be processed as quickly as possible.

2. PACKAGE DEALS SAVE YOU UP TO $10 With the new CD now available online, we've revised the package deals to include "Spoofernatural." Since "Spoofernatural" includes both classic and modern rock tunes, it's available as a part of the Classic Rock Special, the Modern Rock Special, the Total Rock Special and the Complete Package. These packages are all available on the website. Please note: Due to a temporary graphics glitch, the "Radical History Tour" icon appears on the Modern Rock Package although the text says "Ticked." The text is correct, not the graphic. In the "Total Rock Special," the "Ticked" icon is missing, although the text clearly says it's "All five CDs." Again, the text is correct, not the graphic. Rest assured that if you order one of these packages, you will get the CDs as described in the text. The graphics will be fixed soon.

Spoofernatural (2000) $14.99 (includes postage and handling)

Biblical Graffiti (1999) $14.99 (includes postage and handling)

T-SHIRTS ApologetiX T-Shirts look just like the ones you see the guys wearing in concert and on the website. They feature the band's name/logo and the Trinity (triquetta) symbol and the website on the front and the scripture quote from 1 Peter 3:15 and the band's name and the triquetra on the back. The shirts are black with white type and come in three sizes: L, XL and XXL.


VIDEO The ApologetiX video, shot in high quality digital video, is 24 minutes long and includes interviews, lots of "live" music clips and on-stage humor (as you've grown accustomed to if you've seen us "live") plus full-length videos for "One Way" (studio version) and "Hotel Can't Afford Ya" (live version).


4. VOTE TO HAVE APOLOGETIX AT CREATION IN 2001 Last year, we played main stage at Creation in Pennsylvania, the nation's largest Christian music festival. We'd love to play there again in 2001, and we'd love for you to be there too! And there's a way you can help both yourself and us to get there.

5, YOU COULD WIN FREE TICKETS FOR CREATION This year the folks at Creation are doing a survey on their website to help them select the artists they invite. You get to pick your top ten favorite bands you'd like to see at Creation 2001. If you leave your name they'll enter you in a drawing for free tickets, too. Now, before I give you the address and you run and put us in all ten slots, realize this: we want to give them real feedback that they can use -- and besides, we don't want them to think that we stuffed the ballot box! So please, go to the site below and pick your favorite ten bands you'd like to see live and please DO pick us as one of them. And please fill out all the info. (Please only do it once, but please get others to fill it out ... everyone you know will be fine!)

Here's the address of the survey:

7. APOLOGETIX IN THE NEWS This past week ApologetiX was the subject of feature articles in both the Latrobe Bulletin (12/12/00) and the In Pittsburgh Newsweekly (12/13/00). The Latrobe Bulletin is published in Latrobe, Pa., hometown of pro golfer Arnold Palmer and T.V.'s Mr. Rogers. It's also the place I lived in when I became a born again Christian way back in 1988. The In Pittsburgh issue is still available at outlets and in machines all around the Pittsburgh area. It's a free paper. Frankly, we cringed when In Pittsburgh said they wanted to do an article on us, since they tend to lean more than a little to the left of things, but their article "ApologetiX, Meet the SkeptiX," was actually quite an entertaining read, and they didn't totally lambaste us. They actually had some (but not all) kind things to say! As a former reporter and rock reviewer myself, I was pleasantly surprised, but don't expect them to name us as their Band of the Year anytime soon! :o)

We wish you all a very merry Christmas!
