Reviews - What do customers think about Bring in the Clowns - a Metaphor for Ministry?

What makes a clown tick?  Jan 26, 2008
Books on clowning are rare. We are serious people and clowning seems frivolous - unless you've become one. In this book The Rev. "Bud" Frimoth explains how a normal minister of the gospel is transformed into a clown and in the process becomes an ambassador of hope to people in the hospital. If you would like to get into the skin of a clown this book is for you. Remember that in circus talk, the clowns are the only human beings. The others are super human taking on raging lions, defying gravity, etc. Clowns bring a touch of tenderness and intimacy to the circus. In the hospital they draw people out of the boredom that often accompanies illness and disease. "Bring on the Clowns" is also a memoir. It is an account that has brought laughter and grace into the realm of living. How do clowns pick their costume? Why do they paint their faces as they do? There are a slew of questions that are answered. One thing is fairly certain. When you put the book down you'll know more about clowns and who knows, you might just become one. In any case it's a great read!
Clowning and Ministry for Ministers and Clowns  Sep 2, 2007
Bring in the Clowns: A Metaphor for Ministry is part ministry toolkit, part clowning manual, and part memoir. Bud Frimoth relates his unusual experience of clowning in ministry to bring perceptive wisdom to both ministry and clowning. Of particular interest is how Frimoth relates the special crossover in talents, gifts and needs between good clowning and good ministry. In the end, his book is useful for any number of people: for those considering ordained ministry, for those in the ministry but looking for a spark of creativity, for those who are into clowning and may be looking for a way to use their talents to good ends, and for those simply wanting to hear some good stories. Bring in the Clowns is highly recommended!
