Footnotes to Jesus

From the liner notes to the first Archive release: Joni: "That’s one song that I forgot I wrote. I really liked it when I heard it. My oldest fan, Sioux, had a copy of it. She played it for me, and I was really surprised. It’s very timely because Christians have gone so far away from the teachings of their icon, you know? It feels timely. It’s something to say to Christians: Why do you worship the way He died and not the way He lived? That’s the essence of the song.
