Item description for Getting the Word Across: Speech Communication for Pastors and Lay Leaders by G. Robert Jacks...

If you've had little or no speech training, here's how to "get the Word across." Offering practical lessons in disciplined speech, Jacks, a professor of speech communication in ministry, discusses various methods of effective oral interpretation, as well as voice and diction techniques to improve the impact of God's Word on your audience.

Publishers Description
This volume gives pastors and worship leaders practical lessons in disciplined, interpretive speech that will enhance the living quality of Scripture for listeners today. Jacks discusses the practical techniques of effective oral interpretation --phrasing, emphasis, imagery, and vocal gesture --and covers important matters of voice and diction --pronunciation, articulation, and vocal control. Other communication tips include ways to restructure Scripture readings, a chart listing trouble areas in voice and diction, and much more.

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!
Can't wait to read this book  Oct 13, 2002
I have not read the book yet. I'm just now ordering.
