Summary, etc.:
Modern society is awash in words. An auditory tidal wave cascades from our televisions, radios, media players, and the Internet. Today's distracted worshippers often feel spiritually shortchanged when the Scriptures are spoken without passion and power. This lively and encouraging resource is the collaboration of a gifted Bible narrator and a mentor to church leaders. In it they show how churches can train their own teams of Scripture readers. These laypeople can - with enthusiasm, conviction, and passion - "unleash the Word of God," and prepare hearts to receive the message. An illustrative, lively, multi-session DVD that brings the book's lessons to life is included. Spoken well, the Word of God opens and penetrates the listener's heart. Simple, straightforward, and culturally relevant, this book-and-DVD combination provides the necessary tools to teach you how to read the Bible aloud, in a way that communicates its life-changing power!
