Overview

Getting the Word Across: Speech Communication for Pastors and Lay Leaders

This volume gives pastors and worship leaders practical lessons in disciplined, interpretive speech that will enhance the living quality of Scripture for listeners today. Jacks discusses the practical techniques of effective oral interpretation--phrasing, emphasis, imagery, and vocal gesture--and covers important matters of voice and diction--pronunciation, articulation, and vocal control. Other communication tips include ways to restructure Scripture readings, a chart listing trouble areas in voice and diction, and much more.
