Review: Ragamuffin: Based on the life of Rich Mullins DVD
About the DVD:
'Ragamuffin' is based on the life of Rich Mullins, a musical prodigy who rose to Christian music fame and fortune only to walk away and live on a Navajo reservation. An artistic genius, raised on a tree farm in Indiana by a callous father, Rich wrestled all of his life with the brokenness and crippling insecurity born of his childhood. 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.
About Rich Mullins:
Singer and songwriter Richard Wayne “Rich” Mullins was best known for his worship song “Awesome God” which has been embraced as a modern classic by many Christians. His music has been covered by many artists, including Caedmon’s Call, Amy Grant, Jars of Clay, Michael W. Smith, Third Day, John Tesh, and Hillsong United. Mullins’ musical career formally began with Zion Ministries in the late 1970′s, where he wrote music and performed with a band called Zion. Mullins first solo hit, “Awesome God,” appeared on his third album and brought his music to a wider audience. Rich Mullins was inducted into the Hall of Fame by the Gospel Music Association (GMA) on April 29, 2014.
Rich Mullins is a world renowned contemporary music artist that has shown us through his loving words how awesome our God is. With his sheer will, determination and God's almighty power he has been catapulted to where he stands today. With the odds stacked against him God was able to help Him reach his destiny. Ragamuffin, is a film based on his life and his miraculous turn around when it came to going along with God instead of against Him. A very powerful message!
Being the broken man he was, he still moved on to reach greatness in the eyes of many. As a result of a rocky childhood and relationship with his father he struggled within himself to find love in his heart for Rich. And that is what this story is all about, that in spite of the uncertainties he still kept clinging to God. A film that can change lives is what this film has become and I can definitely see why. Too many times we listen to Satan's lies about ourselves and we must never forget that we are children of God and we need to always stay close by his side. Because if we do, we will reach heights way beyond our wildest dreams.
Running time is 96 minutes and the suggested retail price is $19.99.
