A lover of Jesus and a rebel in the church.  Rich refused to  let his struggles with his own darkness tear him away from a God he was determined to love.  As he struggled with success in Nashville and depression in Wichita, Rich desired most of all to live a life of honest and reckless faith amidst a culture of religion and conformity.

My Review:

I have listened to Rich Mullins songs for years but never knew his story till I watched this movie.  This is a awesome movie of his life story. So sad it ended so quickly.  I believe he wanted to find true love. A love he never felt from his father. Not quit sure of how God could love such a Ragamuffin. This is a movie I think all should see. I know it really touched me and kept my attention through the whole movie.

  1. I saw Rich live in concert once with my son. Rich, along with Phil Keaggy, had a great deal of influence in bringing my son back home in the Lord. He cried the day he learned of Rich's death. I nearly did too. God, in his omniscience, took Rich home at exactly the right time. I, in my fallible humanness, still don't understand. Perhaps some day I will. Praise God for what Rich left us.

  2. Thanks for stopping in Bruce. It was a awesome movie. I know I sure did cry. So happy for your son. He touched many. I like you do not understand but we do know God has a purpose for everything. What a wonderful gift he left you!
