Publisher's Description

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.

"Whether you are a senior pastor with weekly teaching responsibilities or a student pastor who has bern charged with engaging the hearts and minds of high school students, this book is a must-read."
-Bill Hybels, Senior pastor, Willow Creak Community Church

"A very practical resource for every biblical communicator who wants to go from good to great."
-Ed Young, Senior pastor, Fellowship Church, Grapevine, Texas

"To communicate effectively, you have to connect. Andy has been connecting with people for years, and now he’s sharing his insights with the rest of us."
-Jeff Foxworthy, Comedian

Story Behind the Book

Andy Stanley and Lane Jones are on staff at one of America ’s largest churches, North Point Community. Leaders of thousands of people, they regularly speak in front of large groups. They also listen to numerous speakers and know the disastrous effects of a poorly delivered message. This book is the result of their efforts to make public speaking—one of the most common fear-inducing activities known to mankind—simple, easy, and even enjoyable, so that God’s messages will readily produce the life-changing results they should.

    If you really want to do your part in capturing people's attention in preaching, I recommend this book. It's an easy, but powerful, read. This style of preaching is very different than what is traditionally taught by mentors and Christian colleges.

    As per Mr. Stanley's sermons, this book has one point: one point sermons. It is an easy read and makes a good point. I do find the book light and limited in its usefulness, although it has some good tips for preaching.

    My first thought when reading the book was that it was only for preachers. However, this book is relevant for any leader.

    I've been preaching for several years now, but I knew I wasn't doing a good job. I was never trained in preaching. It was sink or swim and I've been treading water for years.

    I've heard great preachers as well as bad ones (I'm talking the cure for insomnia type preachers). I've always wondered how great preachers do it, but they are always hesitant to share real insight (they give you good for nothing kind of pointers). Thank God, Pastor Andy was willing to share how he does it.

    I've also wondered how bad preachers don't have a clue how bad they really are. For them, it's the congregations fault for not "getting it", it's the congregations fault for "spacing out". After all, they are preaching the Word of God and that is enough. I agree with them, but when it's not enough, it's time to try something different.

    I can't believe this book has been out so long and I never heard of it until now. I wish I had read it before I preached my first message. These are reasonable, practical keys to communication. I didn't like the expository bashing, because when I want to read and understand the bible I turn to expository (books and preaching). But I must admit that I didn't before I became a preacher. What is perhaps the most important aspect that I learned was how to connect with the audience and not to move into the "message" until I have connected. I think that's been my biggest flaw. I think that's the biggest flaw for "bad preachers". If you are thinking about buying this book, I would recommend it before buying countless other books on preaching (like I have). Give this book the first shot and if you disagree with it, move on to the next.
