ApX Songbook Useful While Awaiting Auto Repairs
Fri., Nov. 17. 2017 1:30pm EST

We've just learned of new application for the ApologetiX interactive songbook; it apparently makes excellent reading while waiting for your car to be fixed:

Twice this week I was at the car dealers waiting; first for diagnostics and the second time for repair when the ordered part came in. I took my printed edition of your 2013 Songbook and began reading through your entries for the songs, starting at the back and making my way through. Today I made it as far as "JC's Mom" on page 220 when my car was ready.

I really like reading your entries: what God gave you; moments of inspiration; what was going on in your life whether it was the birth of one of your daughters, mowing your lawn, being at some biker event, etc; the fun puns for Chicago entry; songs that were only in Rare Not Well Done category that in the last four years have been reworked and re-recorded ("Under the Breath" and "Telling the Drama" which is now "Selling the Dogma"); other fun things like the end of your "Maybe Madonna" entry which reads, "I doubt we'll ever re-record it, although I'd cherish the thought of a much better recording than this!"

And with so many songs that you have, some interesting things have happened when reading through the journals: I "awakened" to the lyrics and what the song "Lock" was about, meaning it was something I had overlooked in the midst of listening to many of your songs. And as one who really isn't musically inclined to the different musicians and bands other than the really obvious ones such as Chicago, Beach Boys, Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Billy Joel, etc. I find it interesting to see names such as Nickelback, Velvet Revolver, Puddle of Mudd, and other groups I've never heard of before.

Anyway, I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your songs and your entries. I always use the electronic version of the 2015 Songbook to look up lyrics and scripture references in your songs, but to take time and sit and read through the journal entries of the earlier edition was really interesting. Since it's already been 2 years since the 2015 edition, I'll wait and have the next edition printed whenever that comes out someday.
Editor's Note: We hope to have a new edition of the songbook ready in early 2018. The previous two came out in early 2014 and early 2016. These days, two years adds about 100 songs to each songbook. It's a ton of work, not just because of the journal entries, but also because of all the ever-changing interactive links. But the next edition should represent 25 years and 50 CDs, Lord willing! Meanwhile, you can still order the current edition (1993-2015) on download at:
