Fields and Robbins combine their many years of experience with a large collection of research to provide a valuable resource to any adult wanting to communicate effectively with teens. This book is filled with humor, graphs, pictures of bridges, insight, real-life experience, and tips. Though the book flows from start to finish, it is possible to find the chapter dealing with an area of speaking where you need help and find the assistance you need to improve.
The first section covers the thinking part of the message preparation. This includes some great information on what needs to go into an effective message (like how to build the bridge from you to the students you want to reach). Although this step in message preparation might seem optional - Fields and Robbins build a convincing argument to its importance. The second section focuses on how to create a message that STICKs. Here you'll learn the importance of Study, Thinking, Illustrating, Constructing, and Keeping focused. Finally, the last three chapters discuss how to deliver an effective message (everything from your vocal pitch and hand gestures to the set-up of the room in which you will be speaking).Read more ›
Sections include: How to Think about Effective Messages, How to Create Messages That S.T.I.C.K., and How to Deliver Effective Messages. I've read a few excellent communicating books. This is the only one specifically geared toward speaking to teens since Ken Davis' How to Speak to Youth & Keep Them Awake At the Same Time, c.1996.
My friends enrolled in North Central University's youth ministry program tell me this book is required reading. It's easy to see why. Beyond loads of practices, Fields and Robbins never lose sight of God's fingerprints on a great message and the heart of shepherding teenagers through His spoken word.
