So, I bought it.
It arrived today and I opened it to find the following:
An annoyingly small font of type with too much content crammed on one page. This is typical of many such self-published works.
A writing style that uses ten words when five would do.
Constant emphasis on books of antiquity which pertain to preaching.
Here is a typical sentence.
" It would be a pleasant interchange of employment to rise from the subject which occupies his thoughts, or from the book he is reading....etc.".
I would hate to have to hear a sermon by the author of this book if this is an example of how he expresses himself.
He announces that he is from Harvard.
I really don't care where he is from.
He can't write and I shall be returning this book.
Why waste valuable time studying effective communication from an author who turns me off starting with the first paragraph?
On a more pleasant note, I also bought another book on a similar topic, Communicating for a change. The authors are both ministers and have a really wonderful way of communicating their message.
Isn't that what's it's all about?
I'll be back, to let you know what i think of the content after i spend the half hour it will take to read it!
Slowly, I learned many, many things. You see this book is the stratagems and methods used by churches before twitter, PowerPoint and focus groups.
This book is about filling your Church by how to preach, and subtle as that may be, the material as I read and thought about it, made a very big impact on me.
So, if you are looking for 22nd Century ideas that include Facebook and Tweets, this is NOT the book for you, but if you are looking for ideas for your Church, if your community is looking for some thing solid that they can hand on to, you will find this book truly an assist.
I think very few people (or professions) know what it is to preach, and what it takes to be one today, and Ware is one of them.
If you feel you need a 'punch up' or you THINK you do, invest a few bucks and read this book.
Its an Answer!
Its a small price to pay even if you get only one good idea.
This is also a good book for any aspiring public speaker.
