Patrick in Jackson.

Schultze encourages readers to become servant speakers who faithfully serve their audiences as neighbors. Besides providing a biblical perspective on public speaking, this accessible book also covers such practical topics as overcoming common challenges, the importance of listening, and the art of preparing and delivering well-crafted speeches. Filled with helpful sidebars, checklists, and tips, this is a book for any person who wishes to improve his or her public speaking skills.
Tim Muehlhoff. Part of the Christian Worldview Integration Series Whether setting about to love our neighbor, to settle a dispute, to share in the suffering of others or to speak up on behalf of the marginalized, we inevitably must engage in communication. I have also appeared on many broadcast programs as a news source, commentator, and media critic.
Yet I was a shy child who suffered from social phobias. Speaking publicly was the last thing I imagined doing later in life. Public speaking is inevitable. We may need to give eulogies, lead group discussions, pray publicly, present awards, participate in civic meetings, and much more.
Unfortunately, the materials available for learning how to speak publicly have become excessively technical, focusing on skills without paying adequate attention to purpose and ethics. The biblical context—speech as a gift and a responsibility for the service of our neighbors—has nearly vanished. This bias is unfortunate, because Christians historically contributed some of the most important insights on public speaking.
Early Christians discerningly adapted speech practices from the ancient Greeks, who founded rhetoric the art of persuasion. By the time of Augustine in the fourth century, however, the art of rhetoric had become largely self-serving. Augustine, trained as a rhetorician before his conversion, eventually concluded that Christians needed to save rhetoric from insincere practitioners who 1 taught and practiced deception, 2 equated good rhetoric eloquence solely with audience impact, and 3 believed that the real, inner character of a speaker was largely irrelevant in contrast to how an audience perceived that speaker.
Many governments, businesses, and other organizations need leaders who speak with honesty, integrity, and civility. Professions ought to nurture responsible as well as effective speech. So should schools, churches, and families. This book reclaims public speaking as a noble practice for Christians. I encourage readers to become servant speakers who 1 faithfully serve audiences as neighbors, in the biblical sense, 2 are virtuous speakers, and 3 skillfully use verbal and nonverbal methods. Faith, virtue, and skill are the keys to servant speaking.
None of us knows when we will be called on to speak. Once my wife and I attended a wedding where we barely knew the groom and had never met the bride. We were invited because the groom happened to meet the bride when he was in our neighborhood to advise us about interior decorating. During the reception, the groom asked me to speak about our role in getting them together. How could I refuse such a gracious invitation?
So there I was, with minutes to plan an impromptu speech. What should I say? How should I say it? Then it dawned on me that I was just a messenger.
