It's not just the industry. Rich Mullins, although not the most vocally/musically talented individual in Christian Contemporary music, was quite possibly the most God Breathed composer that I've had the pleasure of hearing.
Through the Holy Spirit, his music has moved my hard heart to tears on more than one occasion, and his gain of God's eternal reward, has definitely been our temporary loss. Thank the LORD for sending such an inspired writer/composer to us for as long as he was here.
By the way, Stephen Curtis Chapman and Chris Rice are both excellent composers who are very obvious in their love of Christ - I'd highly recommend both of them!
Buffalo tremble, fury in a pheasant's wings, heaven ring, thunder, rain, creational praise! IMHO, Pure Poetry unlike anything else he ever did! Part of me wants to hear and sing this song every morning.
