What do Josh McDowell and Lee Strobel say about ApologetiX?
In August 2005, ApologetiX played at an apologetics (the defense of the Christian faith) conference in Colorado Springs CO, sponsored by Focus on the Family. Some of the nation's top experts on apologetics were featured speakers, including Lee Strobel and Josh McDowell. Here's what each had to say about ApologetiX:
International speaker and author Josh McDowell is probably the world's best known speaker on apologetics. He has spoken to millions on the defense of the Christian faith and is the author of more than 50 books, including "Evidence That Demands a Verdict," "More Than a Carpenter," and "When Skeptics Ask."
"Josh McDowell is happy to endorse the Apologetix music ministry," says Ryan Busboom, personal assistant to Josh McDowell. Josh himself added the following:
"What a thrill to work with 'that Christian parody band" Apologetix at the Dare 2 Deliver Youth Conference, hosted by Focus on the Family. The band distinguished themselves from other Christian musicians by including Bible Scripture in all of their lyrics, high-energy evangelism, and humor that was enjoyed by all ages. I can wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone."
We also recently received this comment from another notable speaker at the conference, Lee Strobel, author of such notable books as "The Case for Christ" and "The Case for Faith":
"I really enjoyed the band in Colorado. Very creative! The kids really loved them. I'll definitely keep them in mind as possibilities if we plan conferences in the future."
