Release Magazine Articles


One of the best kept secrets (hopefully not for much longer!) about Rich has been the quality of his written expressions of his faith. For a number of years, Rich contributed an article to Release Magazine. The inside back cover of every issue featured Rich struggling with another facet of life. Whether struggling with a fear of the dark, with the "Enlightened Age" we live in, or with turning forty, Rich met every challenge head on. His pen tackled each of them armed with his faith, his mind, his heart, and his books (C.S. Lewis and G.K. Chesterton are often drawn from). They express the same honesty and sincerity that is evident in his lyrics, and the profound truths revealed in them equal the insights in the best of his songs.
