Publisher's Description

Whether at a business meeting, church gathering, or social function, most of us will be called upon at some time to speak publicly. As Christians, we are called to speak not only with effectiveness but also in a way that honors God and embodies Christian virtue. In An Essential Guide to Public Speaking, communications expert Quentin J. Schultze encourages readers to become servant speakers who faithfully serve their audiences as neighbors.

Besides providing a biblical perspective on public speaking, this accessible book also covers such practical topics as overcoming common challenges, the importance of listening, and the art of preparing and delivering well-crafted speeches. Filled with helpful sidebars, checklists, and tips, this is a book for any person who wishes to improve his or her public speaking skills.

“It’s short. I like it,” reviewed the Muppet critics following Mr. Fezziwig’s Christmas speech in the movie, The Muppet Christmas Carol. Likewise, author Quentin Schultze has penned a 112-page guide for those launching or improving their speaking abilities.
An Essential Guide to Public Speaking: Serving Your Audience with Faith, Skill, and Virtue is written with grace and humility. A college professor at the University of Illinois, Schultze has spent three decades speaking to his classroom, at conferences, businesses, and on broadcast programs as a news source and commentator. Far from an instruction manual according to Schultze, the author peppered the manuscript with the insights of notable speakers from Augustine to Elie Wiesel to Mike Yaconelli. Speaking tips are highlighted in colorful boxes.
To the reluctant, Schultze writes, “Public speaking is inevitable. We may need to give eulogies, lead group discussions, pray publicly, present awards, participate in civic meetings, and much more.” Biblically, speech is “a gift and a responsibility for the service of our neighbors.” To quote from another speaker, “Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have,” (1 Peter 3:15).
Chapters in this handbook include “Addressing Challenges,” “Listening Well,” “Crafting Artfully,” “Speaking Truthfully,” and “Being Virtuous.” The author addresses the destructive fear most people face regarding public speaking. Statistics reveal that the majority would rather die than speak before a group. Moses was the visual aid, “Lord, send Aaron.”
“On the flip side of destructive fear is excessive ego evident in self-righteous and self-centered speech,” observes Schultze. “Ego is heady stuff, especially for skilled presenters.” Should we be tempted, Schultze steers readers away from boring audiences with an inflated ego.
A practical tool, An Essential Guide to Public Speaking includes five appendixes. By using these checklists and the sample speech outline, anyone can craft a worthy presentation.
Over the years, I’ve read a number of books on public speaking. In this category, An Essential Guide to Public Speaking is my top pick. And it’s short. – PeggySue Wells, Christian Book Previews.com
