Description

Communications expert Quentin Schultze offers a practical, accessible, and inspiring guide to public speaking. This thoroughly rewritten and expanded edition has been revised based on input from students and colleagues.

"An Essential Guide to Public Speaking is in a class of its own. It gets to the heart of the subject quickly, emphasizing skills and virtues for serving neighbors, coworkers, and the world. Schultze frames the ability to speak as a gift, giving readers the rich purpose and motivation to speak with wisdom, clarity, and delight. This book is a gem."
--Stephanie Bennett, Palm Beach Atlantic University

"Borrowing from Augustine, Quentin eloquently reminds us that neighbor love entails speaking for others. He draws together all the key parts of public speaking--researching, outlining, cultivating ethos, using stories, being compassionate--in a fresh and distinctly Christian way. What a gift to Christian communicators!"
--Tim Muehlhoff, Biola University; author of Winsome Persuasion: Christian Influence in a Post-Christian World

"I cannot imagine that a communication department at a Christian school would not eagerly adopt this book. It's an ideal fit."
--Em Griffin, Wheaton College (emeritus)

"I loved the first edition. This stunning new edition surpasses everything else available. It is perfect for educators, students, career coaches, business leaders, pastors, and beyond. It includes everything for writing and delivering speeches that truly serve audiences, with a solid and even inspiring Christian perspective."
--Daniel D. Fultz, Charleston Southern University

"Schultze has done it again! By expanding his classic work An Essential Guide to Public Speaking, he offers a fresh and practical handbook for creating compelling public presentations from a Christian perspective. With accessible language, helpful sidebars, and wonderful discussion questions, this book is even better than the first edition."
--Elizabeth W. McLaughlin, Bethel University, Indiana

"I love this book. It fills a real need by addressing both the basic skills for and the faith-focused call to servant speaking. It's a gift to receive so much expertise and wisdom in one book. Brilliant."
--Dorie Shelby, Spring Arbor University
