Reviews - What do customers think about Getting the Word Across: Speech Communication for Pastors and Lay Leaders?
Show, don't tell Oct 27, 2005
I'm in seminary. I'm reading books on writing sermons, composing sermons, and I'm writing a sermon for this Sunday. I read Jacks book and IMMEDIATELY go edit my sermon and it is MUCH MUCH MUCH better. I don't have to obey his every suggestion, I'm not even Christian,(and he most certainly and devoutly is) but the ideas in this book have made my ability to communicate, connect, show, (not tell) so much better. I know the members of the congregation would thank him, if they only knew! (but we'll keep this just between us, shall we?) If you plan to preach (or even do any public speaking) BUY THIS BOOK NOW!
