About-

If you ever share God's word in public, this book is a must-have.

How would you like your own public-speaking coach helping you prepare your biblical teachings? That's what this handbook is like. Preachers, church staff members, youth pastors, Bible study leaders, evangelists, and more will return again and again to Something to Say? Say It Well! for hands-on advice. Moving one step at a time from nugget idea to delivery, author Mark Abbott not only supplies a treasury of practical tools, he also helps build speakers' confidence to share God's word with Christ-honoring, biblical excellence. With a conversational, easy-to-read style, the author shows how to:

- _Connect to the listener's world by "holding the Bible in one hand and a newspaper in the other."
- _Crystallize a sermon's "big idea" _into a single sentence.
- _Draw on biblical materials, quotes, stories, and other tools to support the main theme.
- _Shape muddled notes into a logical, smooth-flowing sermon.
- _Create openings and closings that "start with an earthquake and end in a climax."
- _Use passion, voice, gestures, eye contact, and emotion for an impacting delivery.
