About-

How to Preach with an Interpreter is a manual for short and long-term missionaries, interpreters, evangelists, pastors, professors, teachers, stateside ministers to internationals, and anyone else who wants to preach but does not know the language.
Every year, thousands of churches send preachers and laymen on trips around the world. Many will attempt the intimidating task of preaching with an interpreter, and few will do it well. Most will never even know their mistakes because they do not know the language. Based upon observations of hundreds of sermons and dozens of preachers and interpreters, this "Crash Course" simplifies a complex task by providing practical, realistic suggestions that will help preachers and interpreters succeed. It describes common problems, offers simple, easy-to-apply solutions, surveys types of interpreted ministries, and suggests ways to get the best results.
Churches, missionary agencies, international ministries, and seminaries should know that this little book fills a large void. As an original and unique contribution to the fields of missiology and homiletics, there is nothing else like it in print.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"If you anticipate having to communicate through an interpreter, by all means read this book. Your interpreter will benefit from your reading it. Your audiences will be more able to follow what you are trying to say. You will be less likely to bore people with your message. Let me say it again. If you have been invited to speak through an interpreter, you must read this book."
--Haddon W. Robinson
Harold John Ockenga Distinguished Professor of Preaching
Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary

"Having spoken with interpreters in Russia, China, South Africa, India, Taiwan, Korea, Egypt, Jordan, Mexico, and Greece, I am now wishing I had read How to Preach with an Interpreter before going. There is a rhetorical rhythm that accompanies the delicate dance between preacher/lecturer and interpreter. Both have to be in sync, speaking almost as one, for the message to be effective. Dennis Bills shows you how to do it."
--William J. Carl III
President and Professor of Homiletics
Pittsburgh Theological Seminary
