The album features one of his most notable songs, "The Prodigal Son Suite", originally written by Green in hopes of completing a full rock opera based on Biblical stories and parables. Another component of that project -- "On the Road to Jericho", telling the story of the Good Samaritan—was released on Green's final posthumous album, Jesus Commands Us to Go!.
