Dove Review

“Rich Mullins: A Ragamuffin’s Legacy” is an inspiring documentary about a young man who lived for God and lived life to the fullest. This documentary not only features Rich Mullins, but also the band whom Rich referred to as the “Ragamuffins.” It reveals how the life of one man can make a difference.

Rich Mullins rose to fame and fortune in gospel music and then gave it all away to live in obscurity with the Native Americans on a reservation in New Mexico. He taught children the hope of the gospel. His life, so full of promise, came to a tragic end, due to an automobile accident. He was loved by many and understood by few.

Rich’s father once said he had two sons, two daughters, and “a piano player,” referring to Rich, who marched to the beat of his own drum. This fascinating documentary is awarded our “Faith-Friendly” Seal for ages 12 and older. This man, who had a great talent and calling, wanted to do God’s will above all other things. Amy Grant is featured, as well, and shares recollections of Rich. His life will touch the viewers who watch this quality documentary. He is still missed and loved to this day.
