I'm excited to officially announce that my latest CD, "Mercifulove: Best of Bob Rice 2006-2015" is now available! You can download songs on ITUNES or download/purchase physical copies of the CD on CDBABY. Though mostly a collection of previously released music, there are three "firsts" that make this CD special (well, to me anyway). The [...]

One of my favorite moments of the summer was when I got to give a talk called, "God is Real" at the Steubenville Summer Youth Conference. At the very least, it gave me a public opportunity to say what I really feel about those "COEXIST" bumper stickers. http://youtu.be/Tu2dShjQ30U

Puns make me happy. Why else would I release a CD titled, "The Gospel Accordion to Bob Rice"? Truth is, I get excited when I come up with a pun because I don't think of myself as a very good "punster". This script I wrote has some good ones in it. The kind that make [...]

I don't normally do this, but sometimes you come across something too good not to share. And when it's made by people you know, that makes it even more special. Theresa and Charles Pobee-Mensah just wrote a book together called, "Bible Characters for Advent." Some of you will remember Charles because he played bass for [...]

When people ask me about my music, my usual joke is, "I'm a big fan of me. I have all my CDs." The truth is that I rarely hear my own music unless 1) my kids ask for it, or 2) it comes up on my iTunes shuffle. But there is a third category: unless [...]
