According to Audio Adrenaline, the album concept and its title song are based on the Scripture, specifically Colossians (Epistle to the Colossians), Chapter 3, where it talks about "giving life over to God". The inspiration came from singer Mark Stuart (Mark Stuart (musician))'s experience living with his missionary parents in Haiti, where voodoo (Haitian Vodou) is heavily practiced. According to Stuart, the message is that "you can be dead to your old self after becoming a new person through religion." Audio Adrenaline Biography on eNotes; B. Kimberly Taylor and Sarah Parkin With the prize money from the Hopwood Awards, Courlander took his first field trip to Haiti, inspired by the writings of William Buehler Seabrook. In 1939, he published his first book about Haitian life entitled ''Haiti Singing''. Over the next 30 years, he traveled to Haiti more than 20 times. His research focused on religious practices, African retentions, oral traditions, folklore, music, and dance. His book, ''The Drum and the Hoe: Life and Lore of the Haitian People'', published in 1960, became a classic text for the study of Haitian culture. Journalism In the years since, Shacochis has worked primarily as a journalist and war correspondent. A longtime culinary aficionado, Shacochis served as a cooking columnist for ''GQ'' magazine, writing the "Dining In" column, which combined often humorous anecdotes with recipes. The "Dining In" columns are collected in ''Domesticity'', a hybrid cookbook essay collection. He is a contributing editor at ''Outside (Outside (magazine))'' magazine, and was instrumental, along with other literary journalists recruited by then-editor Mark Bryant, including Jon Krakauer, Tim Cahill, and Bruce Barcott, in establishing ''Outside'''s popular and critical success. Shacochis is also a contributing editor to Harper's (Harper's Magazine), which sent him to Haiti in 1994 to cover the uprising against Jean-Bertrand Aristide, the island nation's first democratically elected President, and the subsequent intervention by US Army Special Forces, with whom Shacochis traveled for nearly a year covering the invasion. The experience resulted in ''The Immaculate Invasion'', Shacochis's first full-length book of nonfiction.

They airlifted more than 100,000 pounds of emergency food, water and medical supplies.
