Help from a master servant of the Master Apr 8, 2006
We all need a good story. We need to people our exposition with the concrete. The listeners hope to hear the words "there was this man that... or I am told that ...", knowing that the preacher is using a storehouse of wisdom. Preaching is not about one's own special story, but about clearly and in an entertaining manner telling our shared experience and needs. This type of book is a must for all who preach or speak.
A book packed with "speaker type" material Aug 21, 2005
Speaking in seminars and at roundtable groups, I found this book to be very helpful for ice breakers and discussion ideas. An informative approach to naritive speaking.
