From a Professor at Moody Bible Institute

Here's an encouraging email we received from an ApologetiX fan who teaches at Moody Bible Institute in Chicago (founded by world-renowned evangelist D.L. Moody in 1886) and also takes ApX with him on tours of Israel:
I do occasionally play some of your songs at the beginning of class, so I appreciate your creativity especially in the way you weave in the Biblical text.
Another place I really utilize your songs is when I lead trips to Israel (just got back from leading one a couple of weeks ago). While traveling on the bus I play some of your songs as we travel from place to place. Most of the time it is a song related to a site we just visited.
I play "Cornelius" after we visit Caesarea Maritima. I play "Parable Guy" as we travel around Galilee to remind the guests of all the parables Jesus taught. I play "Bethlehemian Rhapsody" after we visit the valley of Elah. I play "Magdalena" after visiting Magdala. I play "Baa Baa We Lambs" after seeing a flock of sheep.
I am more familiar with the older songs as I don't have time to keep up with all the new artists and songs and most of our guests are over 50 anyways and they always appreciate the tie-in to the site. I always mention your group's name and so I am glad to be part of your cheerleading team!
Again thanks for your creative way of bringing in God's Word through the medium of music!
Blessings and may the Lord provide for all your needs!
