Would anyone be willing to share (or at least point me in the right direction where I could find) the Gospel patter using standard props? I have tons of effects I used to do during stage shows, and I am now wanting to bring the Word as well. Thanks for the responses.

Greater Gospel Magic by Duane Laflin is the best single text there is.

Greetings, ptigue. Welcome to The Magic Café!

You may want to also check http://www.fcm.org The Fellowship of Christian Magicians is an organization that does just that very thing. There are resources there that can help you, too. They have a few articles and a new forum with a few ideas already listed there.

You can also do a search on the Café in The Good News forum and Fellowship Of Christian Magicians forum for lots of ideas. There is a wealth of information already here, you'll just have to spend some effort looking for the exact prop/message. It's a good place to start. If you don't find what you are looking for in your search (gospel books, how to write gospel patter for standard effects, etc.) then just ask.

Welcome again!
Joe

I was just speaking to Duane a couple weeks ago, and it seems that GGM is OOP (out of print). Apparently, it has been for awhile. It's an awesome book if you can catch it on eBay or elsewhere. (Duane said he heard one went on eBay for about $300!) He has many other great resources on the Lock website (his daughter, Rebecca Lock, runs the store now). There are also routines usually included in the free email newsletter, so be sure to sign up for that.

I would be willing to help if you want it...99% of my props are all professional level equipment, and then I add my own Gospel presentation to them. So, let me know if I can help.

Michael - Do you know if Duane has any plans to reprint GGM? I would love to get it, but I definitely can't afford $300...Smile

Hey, Terry, when is your book coming out? Smile
Ever thought about compiling your effects and your personalized presentations?
I kind of do the same thing with various effects that are not marketed as gospel illusions.

MarD,
I don't know if there are any plans for a reprint. They may if enough interest was there. You might try contacting them and letting them know you're interested. (Cool lookin' shirts!)

Don't forget Spiritual Applications for Tarbell, people. Smile

I would definitely be interested in it! I think that a lot of other people would, as well. I've heard nothing but good about it, and I haven't heard of too many other books like it or of any that deals so thoroughly with the subject.

Thanks for checkin' out my shirts. I just found out that we will be able to start doing banners next week! Smile

Hey, GlenD...I actually have thought of putting a book together. I have a lot to draw from...I could go to the same place 5 days a week for 4 weeks and not repeat the same material. Because much of what I was doing was repeat work for churches, I had to build that kind of repertoire.

I may have to work on that...thanks for the encouragement.

Terry, I second GlenD's comment. There's a market for a new DVD teaching gospel messages with standard magic props. With as much material as you already have, you probably could put out a 2 or 3 DVD set. I'd purchase it.

So there's two votes for you publishing your works... Any others?

Gee, fellows... Well, that may just be something I can pull off. Just finished an Upwards Banquet last night, and we believe 75 came forward to receive Christ!!! And the church where I was at also has a TV station. Sooooo, maybe I can work a deal with them to do a DVD...I'll keep you posted.

Terry,
I would be interested in anything you put out. I'm currently reading GGM for the first time (I know that as soon as I finish it, I'll just start reading it again), and I would love to have many more books, DVDs, magazines, and anything on the subject. Smile Any suggestions, guys? I know there is a book that gives Gospel presentations for all of effects in Tarbell, so would not having Tarbell make this book hard to understand?

I found out that there is a FCM chapter that meets less then 2 hours from my home, and I plan on joining ASAP.

Also, does anyone know if there is anything on using doves in a Gospel presentation?

If GGM is out of print, do you know where I can find it without taking out a second mortgage?

You could try looking in the "Let's make a deal" area of the Café. That's where I found my copy. You can post a want ad and look to see if anyone has a copy up for sell. Other than that, I think a copy shows up on eBay every now and then.

Hope this helps.

There are quite a few books out there that teach how to present gospel magic with standard props. I have about 10-15 books in my personal library.

I can look up some titles if that will help you.
