Publisher's Description

Roly Bain is a priest who is a clown. His unique ministry is a dramatic sign of the joy of the gospel which is often obscured by church pomp and ceremony, and the inverted values of the kingdom of God. Here, Bain tells his story and relects on the long tradition of the holy fool; the biblical concepts of the "foolishness of God" and "the folly of the cross"; the relationship between humour and healing; prayer and prayerfulness; and much more. Peppered with moving and memorable anecdotes from his work in prisons, hospices, schools and, increasingly, business organizations, this book should encourage all who try to communicate the good news of the gospel.
