When You Talk, Are People Changed?

Whether you speak from the pulpit, podium, or the front of a classroom, you don't need much more than blank stares and faraway looks to tell you you're not connecting. Take heart before your audience takes leave! You can convey your message in the powerful, life-changing way it deserves to be told. An insightful, entertaining parable that's an excellent guide for any speaker, Communicating for a Change takes a simple approach to delivering effectively. Join Pastor Ray as he discovers that the secrets to successful speaking are parallel to the lessons a trucker learns on the road. By knowing your destination before you leave (identifying the one basic premise of your message), using your blinkers (making transitions obvious), and implementing five other practical points, you'll drive your message home every time!

Long ago, in a galaxy far, far away .

Once upon a time .

In the beginning .

Great stories capture and hold an audience's attention from start to finish. Why should it be any different when you stand up to speak? In Communicating for a Change, Andy Stanley and Lane Jones offer a unique strategy for communicators seeking to deliver captivating and practical messages. In this highly creative presentation, the authors unpack seven concepts that will empower you to engage and impact your audience in a way that leaves them wanting more.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tosha | 2/14/2014

    " This book should be read alongside of Haddon's book on developing sermons. It was a refreshing take on how to construct a message and build around one main point to reach what should be our ultimate goal to change lives. "

    " There were some very helpful points in this book, however if you teach expository sermons through books of the bible the "one point" sermon doesn't work, at least not if you want to teach the whole passage. To be fair he says the same thing himself in the book. "

    " Great book on preaching - I'm eager to try what Stanley suggests here. Big take away's: creating and relieving tension for the hearer, building around one idea, unique outlining methodology. Recommended! "
