This summer I have been turning down many movie review requests for this blog. I am trying to free up time this summer with the family and honestly, we have a lot of DVDs here at our house. But when I heard of the RAGAMUFFIN movie based on the life of Christian musician Rich Mullins I just couldn’t say no. I had to see this movie and add it to our family friendly, faith-based movie collection. I was not disappointed. It was so well done. Aren’t we all ragamuffins when it comes to Christ and the Christian experience. We are all so broken without Jesus.
Do you have pain and brokenness in your life and need redemption?
You must see RAGAMUFFIN!
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.

Mullins first solo hit, “Awesome God,” appeared on his third album and brought his music to a wider audience.
