There is a place where you can buy "Spoofernatural" online right now through Christian Book Distributors (CBD):

http://www.christianbook.com/Christian/Books/product/12741153?item_no=CD68003&event=SRC

However, we do intend to make it available via our website (www.apologetix.com) within the next few days. If you'd like to order it from our site, check back at our site over the next few days.

4. APOLOGETIX AT THE BIG SUMMER FESTIVALS IN 2001 We've just received confirmation this week that we will be appearing at the Shout 2001 festival in Charlotte NC and the Alive 2001 festival in Ohio, both in late June. Many times we don't know what festivals we'll play until the beginning of the year, so I still haven't heard from others we played like LiFest, Life Light, Kingdom Bound, Creation, etc. But there is a way you can have input into that. See below.

*****

5. 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.

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: http://www.gospelcom.net/creation/c2001_surv.php3

8. THE "SPOOFERNATURAL" CODE IS CRACKED!

Congratulations to Scott and Sonya LaPlante, who were the first ones to figure out the secret messages on the CD booklet for "Spoofernatural." Scott and Sonya will win a special prize our lead guitarist/producer, Karl Messner, has cooked up for them (since he initiated the codes and the contest!).

Here are Scott and Sonya's answers in their own words, in case you want to copy off of their homework!

1.) Braille (on "Pray Now" page of CD booklet) 2 Cor. 4:4 "Satan, the god of this evil world, has blinded the minds of those who don't believe, so they are unable to see the glorious light of the good news that is shining upon them. They don't understand the message we preach about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God." NLT

2.) Morse Code (on "La Bible" page of CD booklet) 1 Pet. 3:15 " Instead, you must worship Christ as Lord of your life. And if you are asked about your Christian hope, always be ready to explain it." NLT

3.) ApologetiX (American Sign Language) on back of CD booklet

4.) ApologetiX Spoofernatural (Braille on CD case)

You rock, Scott and Sonya!

Apologetically,

J.
