** Hartman retired from touring with Petra in 1995 and was no longer the face on the album cover, but he was still Petra's principle songwriter and in-studio guitarist. He returned to being a full-time touring member in 2001 with the release of ''Revival''.

* SubliminalSeduction: Parodied twice: ''More Power to Ya'' featured a conspicuous backwards message between two tracks -- "What are ya lookin' for the Devil for, when ya oughtta be lookin' for the Lord?" -- and "Witch Hunt", a song directed towards the accusers, whose bridge included backmasked lines that turned out to just be the spoken lines from the film ''TheWizardOfOz''.

* ADayInTheLimelight: Mark Kelly sharing lead vocals with Greg Volz on "I Can Be Friends With You". Producer John Elefante (Kansas) and Lou Gramm (Foreigner) sharing vocals with John Schlitt on "We Need Jesus". Pete Orta singing "Breath In".



* AsTheGoodBookSays: Nearly every song contains some paraphrase of a Bible passage. And in case anyone don't get the reference, the reference was always printed above the lyrics in the liner notes. In one instance, lack of familiarity with [[http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Romans+6:6&version=KJV Romans 6:6 in the King James Version]] made it impossible to understand that the song is [[IThoughtItMeant not about a man killing his father]]. Never ones to shy away from controversy, these guys.
