Everything about sharing the gospel involves communication. One’s approach to communication is all important because, in a sense, the power of life and death is in our communication. The apostle Paul’s words apply to believers here perhaps more than anywhere else: “For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing. To the one we are the aroma of death leading to death, and to the other the aroma of life leading to life” (2 Corinthians 2:15, 16, (NKJV).

Communicating Effectively is more than a book on grammar and the proper use of words. It reveals that communication also has to do with the way one dresses, his attitude, and the lifestyle he chooses. Beyond how one presents himself personally, this volume also includes many different methods of communication, including the latest technological means available. The reader will come away greatly enlightened in all areas of communication.
