'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.
RAGAMUFFIN: MUSIC INSPIRED BY THE MOTION PICTURE includes covers of popular Rich Mullins songs such as 'I See You', 'If I Stand', 'Creed', and 'Calling Out Your Name' preformed by popular independent Christian artists including Jars Of Clay, Andrew Peterson, Derek Webb, Andy Gullahorn, Jill Phillips, Mitch McVicker, Sidewalk Prophets, Audrey Assad, Leigh Nash and more!

In a sense, every one of these songs is a standout, but if I had to pick one or two, it's probably be "Cry the Name" (one of my favorite songs Rich wrote) but especially "Calling Out Your Name" (my favorite... song... ever...).
The demos and filmmaker message at the end are just an added bonus. The real beauty of this disc is some very talented singers and songwriters in their own right covering favorite songs from the very best Christian songwriter we've yet seen.
I miss Rich and whatever music he might have made in the past almost 2 decades terribly, and some of these songs literally brought me to tears with that longing.
This disc doesn't have any direct correlation to the film, by the way. These recordings are not in the motion picture, but are "inspired" by it. No matter, it still made me want to sit down and watch the movie again.
