Rich Mullins was a once-in-a-lifetime singer/songwriter whose impact on Christian music and the church is still felt today, even twenty years after his passing. His words and music softened and inspired the most hardened hearts to believe. His was a ragged and raw faith of a pilgrim, poet, and prophet. Now more than a dozen of today's singers, songwriters, producers, and authors gather to share never-before-heard stories and lessons that continue to influence their music and ministries today. These lessons, gleaned from Rich's own struggles and pursuits, are combined with lyrics from unreleased Rich Mullins songs that will inspire longtime Mullins fans, new Christian music followers, and spiritual seekers trying to understand the reckless love of God.
A multiple Dove Award-nominated singer/songwriter and respected author, Andrew Greer is known for his soulful folk-gospel sound, instinctively captured on his critically-acclaimed Angel Band recordings. Andrew's 2013 hymn project, All Things Bright & Beautiful, held the #1 position on Nielsen Christian SoundScan's Instrumental chart for 25 consecutive weeks. The author of Transcending Mysteries, Andrew's stories have appeared in Christianity Today, In Touch, and CCM. A native Texan, Andrew makes his home in Franklin, Tennessee.
