1 Corinthians 1:17; 1 Corinthians 2:2;


Hence the Christian preacher will seek to direct his Message to the ear of his audience in the clearest and most Powerful manner possible. He must be like a window through which the light of' God’s Word shines to the hearer. This implies that the preacher must understand the defects of public speech which cause a man to seem unpersuasive, self-conscious, or distasteful to an audience. It means that will have to cultivate harmonious cooperation between his Own mind and emotions, speech organs and body, to the end that become a good channel for the Word of God toward people.

And it is to that end that this study is made to help the preacher understand the obstacles to effective communication, and to suggest guidelines that will be of help in persuasive preaching.
