My first Rich Mullins album (or...ahem, tape) Nov 18, 2009
I was in my early teens the first time I heard the song "Awesome God" on the radio. The impression it left me with was that I had to find the tape that had that song on it. I didn't know who Rich Mullins was, nor was I familiar with any of his other songs. I had no idea if I was going to enjoy any of the other songs on the tape. But I did! And now more than 20 years later WINDS OF HEAVEN is still one of the best CCM albums ever made.
Rich Mullins had a rare gift for finding the beauty in God's creation and putting it into song. This theme can be found to one degree or another in all of his work, but in WINDS OF HEAVEN, it shines very brightly (e.g. "With the Wonder"). It's a trait rarely found among CCM artists. Certainly, this love of creation can be found in the music of many secular artists, but they don't credit the Creator as the Artist behind the handiwork.
WINDS OF HEAVEN...STUFF OF EARTH is one of those rare CCM albums that has not only stood the test of time but has aged more gracefully than any of it peers. The music is as timeless as its the title.
of sky and dirt. Mar 1, 2009
In this masterpiece of Rich Mullins, he combines the problem of pain and depravity with the glory and grandeur of G-d and His creation. Not only is this album beautiful lyrically, but the layers of sound which are multiple instruments only add to the multifaceted scope of this album. Every song on this album is enjoyable and worthy of your time. Although you may have sung the chorus of "Awesome G-d" in church, the chorus alone does not make the song complete. The verse describes the power and wrath of G-d which is overlooked by so many. This album combines the humility of Rich, his focus on G-d through the "stuff of earth," and the power and might of Rich's G-d and best friend.

"Winds of Heaven, Stuff of Earth", was the first tape I ever bought of Rich's. It has the classic, "Awesome God", on it. But that song is just one of many on this CD to be treasured. This is the Rich music I was introduced to, thus beginning my long time fascination with him as an awesome singer/song writer/poet, but even more importantly, as a child of God trying to find his way. Every home should have this CD. The lyrics inspire and comfort me, even to this day.
Awesome CD May 5, 2003
This is one of the greatest albums ever to ber released!
Rich Mullins song writing talent shows through here so elloquently and powerfully that you cannot help but be moved.
This CD features such a wonderful array of classic Rich Mullins songs, each unique in it's composition and performance. Unlike other artists who have a particular sound or style that they use, Rich Mullins encorporates every style of music onto this CD. With staples of Chirstian Music such as Awesome God and If I Stand, to the lesser known Ready for the Storm and Home this CD will keep you listening throughout. There is no real point on this where you want to skip over a song to go on to the next one, they are all unique and wonderful. This album was a truly inspired work by one of Christian Music's greatest!
Found On This Disc Is The MOST Powerful Christian Song Ever May 25, 2001
This album is wonderful. Now it is not the whole piece of art as THE WORLD AS BEST I REMEMBER IT VOLUME 2 but it is great. It is on this cd that we first heard AWESOME GOD. In my opinion this is the definitive Christian song of our time. It is a modern day Amazing Grace. The cd begins with the stirring call to missions, The Other Side Of The World. A choir of foreign childrren voices remind us that the other side of the world is closer than we think. With The Wonder is a somewhat forgetable song that weakens the overall quality of the cd. Awesome God is the next cut. What can be said of such an incredible song with such an incredible impact on the world. I don't think I will ever tire of singing this hymn and look forward to the first time I sing it before my Lord! If I Stand is one of my all time favorite Rich songs. So many memories I have of this song ministering to me in late night hours. "There is a loyalty that's deeper than mere sentiment and a music higher than the songs that I could sing, the stuff of earth competes for the alegiance I owe only to the giver of all good things". Boy was Rich deep. Home is a haunting song that speaks of our deep longing for a place we have never been but want to spend our lives forever. Such A Thing As Glory is also a bit forgetable and weakens the cd. And I Love You starts us down the slippery slope of not as good music followed by Ready For The Storm that only makes you wonder if you still have the same cd in the player. One True Love and How Can I Keep Myself From Singing end the cd uncerimoniously. However this cd is worth owning for AWESOME GOD alone. Home and If I Stand also give reason to cherish this sometimes inconsistent compact disc.
