ApX Album Changed Maryland Man's Life
Fri., Mar. 2. 2018 11:15am EST

Randy Bachman of Bachman-Turner Overdrive recently held a contest in which he asked fans to "share an album that changed your life in some way and tell us why it did." One of his fans picked an ApologetiX album! Here's an excerpt of what he wrote:

Apol-acoustiX by ApologetiX. I picked it up for $2 in a Salvation Army thrift store while visiting family in Leavenworth KS (no, not the prison) in August 2006. (I was searching for Three Investigator books).

I quickly bought more CDs online, became friends with the lead singer and other band members, and took my family to as many shows as we could drive too. I've now lost count of how many shows I've seen, and I was blessed to promote two concerts at our former church.

We did attend their 15th, 20th, and 25th anniversary shows in Pittsburgh and my wife, and I drove to Georgia for a CD release concert for one of our anniversaries. I now have every CD (they just released #50), buy extras to give out to people, and talk about them often.

The musicianship is stellar and only gets better over time. The lyrics are clever, sometimes funny, sometimes moving, always great and faithful to the Bible. Making biblical parodies of popular music (Rock, Metal, Country, Hip-Hop, Pop, etc) is a great way of spreading the Gospel.

Sharing their music and telling people about them is my favorite way of witnessing to people about the love of Christ and the forgiveness they can find in him. There are lots of albums that are meaningful to me, but this is probably the most significant one given what happened afterwards.

They put out singles twice a month for donations of any size (a penny, a dollar, or whatever) -- they don't make a lot of money doing this, but they are called to it and it's a true and effective ministry.

Thank you very much, Matthew! We hope to continue doing this for a long time, Lord willing, so hopefully you ain't seen nothing yet!
