Ragamuffin movie review and giveaway

I was asked to write a review for the DVD, "Ragamuffin" (released on July 8th), which is a movie based on Rich Mullin's life.  Most Christians have heard the most famous song he wrote, "Awesome God" at one point or another, but the I didn't know the rest of his life-story.  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 throughout a culture of religion and conformity. His legacy lives on through the songs he wrote, and he was honored by being inducted into the Gospel Music Association's Hall of Fame just this past spring.

This movie revolves around the struggles that Rich goes through in his life and how his faith was affected by others and how he in turn showed Jesus to the people he influenced with his life and his music. It is heart-wrenching at points, but also heart-warming to know that God uses us even when we're broken.
