Synopses & Reviews
We're amazed at the scope of this book. It's a collection of clown sketches -- it's skill-building how-to -- it's clown history -- it's philosophy of life and more! "Itinerant gladness scatterer" Philip Noble generously shares insights, ideas and inspiration from his experience as "Rainbow". His lively stories clarify the text, much as parables unlock the mysteries of the New Testament. Though he encourages clown ministers to develop their creativity by developing original routines, he also shares the secrets behind origami, string tricks, juggling and other skills in short segments interspersed between the chapters. Illustrations and thorough instructions facilitate learning. But skills alone aren't enough. The true clown of God shouldn't just look different on the outside -- he or she should be different on the inside. The magical, mystical world of clown ministry is all here -- and it's made accessible for beginners, yet challenging for experienced clown ministers!
