Instead of engaging only the ears of your congregation, multi-sensory communication enables you to engage their ears, eyes and hands; and it brings more of the whole person into the learning process. Rick Blackwood contends that conventional teaching engages only hearing. Multi-sensory teaching engages hearing, seeing and touch. Increase attention, comprehension and retention in your listeners. This hardcover was chosen as Preaching Magazine's Book of the Year.

Most preaching and teaching in the church engages only one of the senses---hearing. In The Power of Multisensory Preaching and Teaching, Rick Blackwood shows how recognizing and engaging the multiple senses of the congregation can lead to greater impact. Blackwood presents both biblical evidence and scientific research showing that the more senses we stimulate in teaching and preaching, the greater the levels of learner attention, comprehension, and retention. Blackwood addresses both the 'why' and the 'how' of multisensory communication. Regardless of one's current skill level, this practical book can help anyone add multi-sensory elements to messages in order to take communication to the next level---more compelling, clear, and memorable. As a result of reading this book readers can be more effective as a communicator and teacher. The book includes tools, examples, and worksheets.
