    Less than one would want.

    One comes out of this with some information about how and what Rich thought, but only a few bits and pieces about his life. The hand of censorship was obviously strongly upon the writer. He deals in comfortable generalities rather than the details that beg to be revealed. The writer talks a lot about Rich's sin.......but never reveals a single one. Everyone in real life around Rich knew that he smoked cigarettes, but even that fairly innocent fact is never revealed. Somebody needs to write a true biography about this troubled musical genius and major Christian poet. I'd buy it again, but I was not real pleased with the paucity of biography and the seeming attempt to maintain the myth created by Christian Music Industry propagandists. Until the real story comes out--I guess this will have to do.

    Story of Rich Mullins helps me learn to walk in His ways

    Ever since I learned that a biography was being written about Rich Mullins I couldn't wait to order it. James Bryan Smith does not dissappoint those who love Rich Mullins...his life and his music. I found myself laughing out loud and falling off my couch only to have tears streaming down my face a few sentences later. Smith (who lived with Mullins) blessd me with his honest stories about the Christian singer/songwriter who died three years ago in a car wreck. I like the story about Amy Grant's manager who unknowingly told Rich to step out of the refreshment room because it was reserved for the 'artists', only to find out later when Rich went onstage that he was the opening act! An especially poignant moment in the book was the story about Rich whispering his prayers into the author's baby girl's ear because she had 'real pull with God.' I don't know anyone like Rich - a man who would sell all his worldly riches so that nothing would come between himself and God. I found myself wishing I had been a friend of his, to learn from him, to enjoy him. But more importantly, I found myself yearning to emulate Jesus which is just how Rich would have wanted it. He truly was an arrow pointing to Heaven!

    Not your everyday biography

    This book was like Rich, clear and to the point, with a sense of humor,clearly expressing how much God Loves us - no matter what. The many references to what he said proves that he was clearly a champion for the broken and needy. It was also shown how he was not only speaking to us, but to himself as well. I wish that I could have attended one of his concerts...this book shows me what I missed!!!

    inspiring

    One of the most inspiring books (should be read as a companion to The World As I Remember It) I've ever read, a wonderful insight into the life of an inspiring servant to his God.

    wow

    Every person needs to read this book. This man was so real. Rich Mullins was one of us. I love how this book was about Rich Mullins and Jesus. You get a better glimpse of both their personalities. What a gift.

    Let LOVE abound in each and every one of us ...

    James B. Smith, Rich's family, other contributors, and along with Rich himself give us some open and candid insight into the life and beliefs of Richard Wayne Mullins. And be ready as you read, as you will not only be amused but you will find yourself starting to think alittle deeper about God and Jesus too, especially how They made an impact on Rich's life ... and how Rich then related to all those around him. Overall, this is an excellent book ... for both Christians and those who do not believe in Jesus, Christ our Lord. I really enjoy Rich's music and I only wished I would have read this book sooner.
