Here is the third book in Rev. Jim Dracups gospel magic trilogy! The first two books, Magic With An Upward Look
and Magic That Gives An Upward Lift
have proven to be best-sellers. All the books in this three-book series are loaded with practical and audience-tested material. Each book contains so much material that you are sure to find an application for tricks you already own. (You will also find applications so perfect that you will convince yourself to buy the corresponding effect!) All of this stems from Jim Dracups extensive backgrounds in both gospel work and magic. Both have been his life work and these three books are the combined collection and culmination of that work.
Magic That Points To The Upward Life carries on this tradition beautifully. One of the early chapters deals with the oft-asked question: "Why Magic?" (in regards to the teaching of gospel truths). Here you will find a logical and well documented statement of the authors beliefs wherein the gospel and magic are used to support each others positions. This is followed by an extensive section on advertising and promotion. A section that is jam-packed with actual examples of business cards, handbills, letterheads, brochures, give-aways, novelties, etc. These should stimulate your own creativity and spur on your enthusiasm.
The next large section is titled: "Magic In The Making" and it deals with constructing some of your own equipment. To aid you in this undertaking, there are numerous blueprints and illustrations for the following effects: A Magic Black Art Table, A Block-Frame-Ribbon Trick, Candle From Pocket, Magnetic Milk, Chinese Rice Canister, Confetti To Candy, A Crystal Casket, Wrist Stock Escape, and more. This section is filled with useful hints and tips for the do-it-yourselfer!
