Publisher's Summary

When You Talk, Are People Changed?

Whether you speak from the pulpit, podium, or the front of a classroom, you don't need much more than blank stares and faraway looks to tell you you’re not connecting. Take heart before your audience takes leave! You can convey your message in the powerful, life-changing way it deserves to be told. An insightful, entertaining parable that's an excellent guide for any speaker, Communicating for a Change takes a simple approach to delivering effectively. Join Pastor Ray as he discovers that the secrets to successful speaking are parallel to the lessons a trucker learns on the road. By knowing your destination before you leave (identifying the one basic premise of your message), using your blinkers (making transitions obvious), and implementing five other practical points, you'll drive your message home every time!

"Long ago, in a galaxy far, far away…."

"Once upon a time…."

"In the beginning…."

Great stories capture and hold an audience's attention from start to finish. Why should it be any different when you stand up to speak? In Communicating for a Change, Andy Stanley and Lane Jones offer a unique strategy for communicators seeking to deliver captivating and practical messages. In this highly creative presentation, the authors unpack seven concepts that will empower you to engage and impact your audience in a way that leaves them wanting more.

    Story
    "A must read for every communicator!"
    If you could sum up Communicating for a Change in three words, what would they be?

    A communication map-book.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Communicating for a Change?

    When you are determining your goal for communicating, ask yourself, "Am I just passing along information or am I communicating something to help change someone's life?".
    Remember the map: Me-We-God-You-We. (let the reader understand).
    When you get stuck, remember: 1)What do they need to know? (information), 2) Why do they need to know it? (motivation), 3) What do they need to do? (application), 4) Why do they need to do it? (inspiration), 5) How can I help them remember? (reiteration)


    What does Lloyd James bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I appreciate Lloyd James, however, with all do respect, I don't think his reading was anything outstanding. It was decently performed, but from a producer's point of view, it did lack a little in real 'first person" life likeness" and authenticity. It was good enough. I was not disappointed. Compared to some books I've heard, Lloyd is Awesome!


    Any additional comments?

    I still like and prefer a good exegetical sermon or Bible lesson, however, I believe Andy Stanley is the best communicator of this current season of time. His "One Point" approach is meeting a huge need and his method should be valued for the credit that it truly is!

    Story
    "Long and Redundant"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The word count far out paced the content. I would have enjoyed it more if I did not have to work through so much unnecessary dialogue.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    AHA by Kyle Idleman


    How could the performance have been better?

    Eliminate the redundancy. The author repeats himself quite a lot.


    Any additional comments?

    I like and will be implementing the points that they author makes.

    Story
    "Challenging Call For Communicators"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Communicating for a Change to be better than the print version?

    This is a great example of the power of an audio book. The narrarator excells at telling the begining chapters as it is mostly dialogue between characters. I found myself laughign outloud at his interpreation of the characters.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the opening story that provided the listener to be drawn into the character's dilemma. It made the more technical sections more interesting and fun to read as you related the material back to the opening story.


    Have you listened to any of Lloyd James’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Lloyd James is spot on as always!


    Any additional comments?

    Every communicator would be wise to listen to this tale and apply what they learn.
