Reviews - What do customers think about The Clown Ministry Handbook?
Praise for Clown Ministry handbook Jul 16, 2000
Arguably, The book on clown ministry. An excellent resource on gospel clowning (it's not focusing intently on creating make-up or other "clown" activities, but rather how the clown becomes a gospel clown). An excellent resource with several skits as well as interviews with several gospel clowns across the country.
Excellent resource for people interested in Clown Ministry Jul 11, 1997
This book begins with the history of Christian clowning, taking you back to the Roman Empire, then brings you forward to today. Interviews and profiles with Floyd Shaffer and other "greats". Several interesting and useful skits in the end. A great investment
