Item Description...
Overview
Philip Nobel 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 chapters. Illustrations and thorough instructions facilitate learning. The magical, mystical world of clown ministry is all here--and it's made accessible for beginners, yet challenging for experienced clown ministers!

Publishers Description
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

Communicating God's Message in an Interesting Way  Dec 25, 2002
Philip Noble is an Anglican priest and evangelist from Scotland. He is also a very creative clown minister, and cofounder of the International String Figure Association. Philip uses these gifts in his ministry. He wrote "Fool of the Kingdom" so that others could also learn these techniques.

"Fool of the kingdom" explains how to develop a clown character, how to juggle, how to do origami and string games, and also provides many other clown tips. It is full of ideas, advice, instructions, anecdotes, as well as sketches.

Philip wants us to know that although performing is a great idea, we must make sure that the message of the sketch or story always remains clear.

What I appreciated most about this book were the sketches and origami, because I enjoy drama and like to show my friends new tricks. People who want to use acting or story telling to help them communicate God's message to others will be interested in reading this book.

 
Clowns as Wise and Humble Peacemakers  Dec 27, 2000
Philip Noble's book FOOL OF THE KINGDOM: HOW TO BE AN EFFECTIVE CLOWN MINISTER is a joy to read. I would recommend this to youth, Youth Ministers and missionaries as well as anyone who is searching for a unique way to open hearts to the wonder of Christ's life and message. As Rainbow the clown, Pastor Noble uses string games, origami, juggling and gentle magic that is explained at the end of the book. The role of a clown is presented not only as a comical one but also as a wise and humble peacemaker. Reading this made me want to present this book to several youth ministries in Japan, and develop a clown character myself.
 
Un livre épatant!  May 13, 2000
Dans ce livre,on trouve toutes sortes de choses. Par exemple, comment couper une pomme en faisant en sorte que les deux morceaux s'emboîtent ensuite, ou comment apprendre à jongler ou à faire un singe avec une peau d'orange? Philip Noble est un type épatant, qui nous fait partager sa joie d'etre clown. Il nous explique des tours de ficelle, un pliage de mouchoir (souris) ou de papier, les base du maquillage, de l'habillage.. Les histoires et les sketches sont très bien et m'ont fait bien sourire et rire. Les histoires sont soit bibliques, soit des histoires traditionnelles juives ou autres. Mon fils a bien aimé le chapitre sur les bulles de savon. En bref, un livre épatant comme son auteur.
