  • Description
  • In 1997, the world was rocked with the news of Rich Mullins' passing. Christians everywhere paused their lives to mourn the loss. Radio stations paid tributes. Newspapers dedicated articles. Friends, family members, fans and fellow musicians came together to remember this man that had impacted their lives. I was with my family when I heard. I was standing in our driveway. It seemed strange, because just a few hours prior, I saw Rich Mullins alive, leaving our house. My last conversation with him took place the night before in our living room. I still hadn't yet wrapped my mind around the fact that this legend had somehow come to stay at our house. Now... he was gone? The world listened in sad silence, trying to find out what they could. We listened too, and knew there were details to the story the world wouldn't hear. Years have gone by, and I've always felt compelled to write down the story of Rich, staying in our home for the last three weeks of his life as a guest. I know how good things can be forgotten, and I haven't wanted to forget how this has impacted me. Not long ago I picked up a pen. I knew that I probably never would if I didn't simply make a move. I began to write down what I remembered. Now, I want to share with you what this story has meant to me. Welcome to Meeting Rich. A liturgy. A legacy. A man with a guitar in my living room. "It is a beautiful description of the great and complex man Rich was". - Michael Aukofer

My Review:  "RICH MULLINS: Meeting Rich: A Liturgy. A Legacy. A man with a guitar in my living room." by Caleb J Kruse is an autobiography about a man meeting Rich Mullins. I must admit when I bought the book I thought it was more about Rich Mullins but after reading the book and thinking about the title it was plain to see that the title was actually describing the book.

I really enjoyed reading the book. The book had pictures. It was a short read and very easy  to follow. It had links to videos to go along with story.I am glad I brought the ebook as I think it might had been a different experience if I had the print book and couldn't just clink on the links.

I really enjoyed reading about how the author's life was impacted by an icon like Rich Mullins. It was really nice to know that some stars truly practice in their personal life what they preach on stage.
