Item description for Speaking with Spirit: A Guide for Christian Public Speakers by Wanda Vassallo...
Overview Statistically, the number one thing that people fear, above disease and death, is public speaking. However, one of the realities of life today is that people are routinely called upon to speak-at their job, in their community, and in their churches. For a Christian, though terrifying, it is possible to face that challenge with the confidence that comes by knowing Christ. Speaking with Spirit lays the foundation of Christ as our example speaker and reason for our confidence, then moves on to the basics of communication, including the mechanics of speech, such as pitch, breath control and diction. It discusses various types of speeches, such as persuasive, informative, devotional, impromptu, research, and pulpit, as well as performance-based speeches, such as dramatic interpretation, storytelling, and acting. It includes effective methods for preparation and delivery, preparing the reader to address a group of any size and in any situation. Designed specifically for the believer, this book is an excellent "how-to-guide" for pastors, teachers and all Christian communicators.

Great book for High School Intro to Communications Feb 10, 2008
This book is wonderfully written and begins with the example of the greatest orator of all time, Jesus Christ. In the first chapter, Ms. Vassallo examines the communication style of Jesus and how he influenced his audience to action. She then breaks down the different elements of communication skills in detail in the following chapters. I am using this book in a Communications class for Christian young people, in order to teach them how to use good communications skills to influence their world.
