ApologetiX April 15 Announcement
Mon., Apr. 15. 2002 2:00pm EDT
J. Jackson, lead singer and lyricist for ApologetiX (That Christian Parody Band) here.
It's April 15 ... do you know where your taxes are? Just as many of you probably waited till the last minute to do your taxes, we waited till the last minute to send you the April 15 announcement we promised.
Being that it's tax deadline time, don't you wish you had a grace period? We thought so. Consequently, we've chosen April 15 to announce the upcoming release of our seventh CD, "Grace Period."
Scheduled to hit the stores this summer, "Grace Period" will contain 20 parodies of rock songs from the 1960's through today, a variety similar to that of "Keep the Change" and "Spoofernatural."
The title, "Grace Period," is a double entendre. As human beings, we are given a grace period throughout this life in which we are given time to turn to Christ for salvation before the final judgment. When we do turn to Christ, we are saved by grace, period.
We hope to announce the official release date soon, but you can figure on seeing the finished CD in about three months or so. In the meantime, in this Wednesday's weekly newsletter we'll start giving you clues about the songlist, as we did with "Keep the Change" before its release.
Wesscott Marketing is now taking orders from stores for "Grace Period," so we encourage you to ask your local store to pre-order it now. Please have them contact Wesscott Marketing at 1.800.788.0442 or
They can also order "Grace Period" through the catalogs of New Day, Ingram Spring Arbor, Riverside, Central South, and Anchor Distributors.
We hope you're as excited about this announcement as we are! Please pray for us, that God would give us the inspiration, the talent, the endurance and the dedication to make this our best effort yet!
God bless you!

Luke 19 1???
Jesus entered Jericho and was passing through. 2???A man was there by the name of Zacchaeus; he was a chief tax collector and was wealthy. 3???He wanted to see who Jesus was, but being a short man he could not, because of the crowd. 4???So he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore-fig tree to see him, since Jesus was coming that way. 5???When Jesus reached the spot, he looked up and said to him, "Zacchaeus, come down immediately. I must stay at your house today." 6???So he came down at once and welcomed him gladly. 7???All the people saw this and began to mutter, "He has gone to be the guest of a `sinner.'" 8???But Zacchaeus stood up and said to the Lord, "Look, Lord! Here and now I give half of my possessions to the poor, and if I have cheated anybody out of anything, I will pay back four times the amount." 9???Jesus said to him, "Today salvation has come to this house, because this man, too, is a son of Abraham. 10???For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost."
