Band Name Origins:

  • the name, contrary to popular belief, was actually from thier favorite bible verse Submitted by: Allison
  • The name of the band came from C.S. Lewis's book "Mere Christianity." There is a part of the book where a child asks for six pence from his father to buy him a gift. The father gives his son the money and thinks that he spent six pence for a gift, so he is really getting the money back in the form of the gift. The band saw it fitting with the message that God gave His Son to buy back His creation. The origin was mentioned in Charisma magazine and many other sources. Submitted by: burgerjohnson
