This book is a compilation of Ralph Dewey’s “Good News Balloons” columns from Christian Conjurer magazine, edited and supplemented by new material. It’s a very nice resource, which I recommend to balloon workers, caring clowns or clown ministers. Although it’s much longer that the first book in the series, like all of Ralph Dewey’s books, it’s more of a pamphlet (32 pages) than a book.
Unlike the first book, there are many ‘how-to’ illustrations of how to make the actual balloons (including the various fruit & fruit basket for a ‘fruits of the Spirit’ skit). The book includes:
- The “care & feeding” of balloons
- Ways to use Gospel balloons
- Bus Ministry guidelines
- “Bee” a Christian skit
- Adam and Eve skit
- The Fruits of the Spirit skit
- Good News Balloon Hats
- “Mob” balloon work
- Saint Peter skit
- Our sin nature skit
- Gospel Balloon ideas
All in all, a nice little volume, inexpensive and worthwhile. Recommended to gospel balloon workers, clown ministers, (and even ‘ordinary’ ministers).
