Gazette Premium Content The story of Rich Mullins

The Gazette - Updated: January 12, 2014 at 7:02 pm

When "Awesome God" moves worshipers to song and praise, it also says much about the deep, strong beliefs of musician and songwriter Rich Mullins, whose tragic story is told in the documentary "Ragamuffin," Monday at Stargazers Theatre and Event Center, 10 S. Parkside Drive.

Mullins, who shared the Nashville Christian music world of Amy Grant and Michael W. Smith, faced down personal demons early in life and later had problems with alcoholism, depression and womanizing.

At times he questioned his faith, looking for "My Deliverer."

Mullins died in a traffic accident when he was 41.

The look at the man, his struggles and his songs starts at 7 p.m. (doors open at 6 p.m.) Monday. Admission: $10 plus a ticket fee, or $8 plus a ticket fee for groups of more than 10. Details: 476-2200,
