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.

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.

    Communicating for a change

    Excellent perspective on preaching. Simple, and to the point. Preaching for and to real people, not for mechanical notetaking.

    The Goal- Instead of preaching points "communicate for a change."

    (I more than recommend this book. I have purchased it for two other people)

    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.
