Overview

Whether they like it or not, actors and preachers have a great deal in common. Many churchgoers see the truth in the old saying that links preachers and frustrated actors, though few preachers seem anxious to acknowledge the family resemblance.

This volume is ideal for seminary students and preachers who wish to enrich their delivery and creativity skills.
