Welcome to THE M.A.D. House Artists !
IT RAINED !! Seasons without rain have challenged the whole state of Oklahoma...
Welcome precipitation in any form!
Be sure to look at our listings at AMAZON.COMThe M.A.D. House Artists could not be more excited!
We have launched our own exclusive
Online Book Store!!!!
For each of the more than 1,200 books we have listed both at our website, books.themadhouseartists.com, and at amazon.com we intend to have an individual picture of the book. It may take Candace a while to get all the listings matched with their photos (because it is done one-at-a-time), but You will never buy a book from us sight-unseen! If you are looking for a book, let us know. it may be among the 10,000 not yet listed. If the image is not yet matched, we can send it to you in moments.
When you 'book' an event at The M.A.D. House Artists, live performances of short stories are always an option for your experience. Dad's readings of Stories is an experience not to be missed! For years we have offered the pleasure of hearing a book read in serial form on Sunday afternoons. Join us and enjoy our books and Dad's reading of them.
At the request of the author, and with great pleasure, we will be presenting Dr. Robert R. Ball's 1970s series of sermons from Memorial Drive Presbyterian Church in Houston, Texas. At the 2010 Joyful Noise choir reunion and conference it was a joy to discuss with Dr. Ball the theology approached in this series of sermons and the subsequent effect they have had on the lives of the young people who heard them.
Each sermon presented in this context comes from copies collected, carried, preserved and studied by TEENAGE congregants, who have incorporated this thinking into their lives (we are currently in our fifties). Dr. Ball wanted to share these for the edification of the new generation and the revivification of the older one.
Presbyterianism being primarily a volunteer organisation, Mom naturally volunteered for this happy duty. It is an honor to revisit the foundation of Mom's whole philosophy and theological outlook.
Dr. Robert R. Ball
