Honest encouragement and solid direction Aug 6, 2007
I had the priviledge to meet Jim Watkins at the Blue Ridge Christian Writers Conference, May 2007. He is a wonderful speaker, filled with humility, wisdom and humor. This book proves no less.
Aimed at writers and speakers, this book is a necessary read for anyone who is serious about teaching. It's a great tool for those in ministry, revealing in an organized fashion how to be effective with words. The text is divided into three main sections: changing lives through intelligence, intensity and integrity. The author weaves Scripture and vivid illustrations throughout. He provides many clear examples of how to apply the principles of this book. Furthermore, it's an easy read. His tone is light and conversational without mincing the important details.
Final Thoughts: An easy read and great resource. Definitely RECOMMENDED.

James Watkins is a speaker, teacher, writer, humorist, editor, pastor. And he's done a whole list of other things, too. This book covers the essentials of communication, spoken or written. I'm a writer, and I've read it twice already. The book is well organized and covers the subject thoroughly. And the best part---it's laced with Watkin's special brand of gentle humor. It's one of those books that will always be in my library because the wisdom contained in it is ageless.
