If you are an experienced speaker, you can sharpen your communication skills to a new intensity. If you are just beginning to develop your speaking skills, The Art of Storytelling will enhance your ability, enjoyment, and effectiveness. John Walsh is president of International Learning Solutions, which serves churches, schools, and individuals. John believes that storytelling can play a key role in ministry, education, and business. He has been a sought-after speaker for many years, using storytelling in all his lectures. Currently his most popular seminar is Making a Bible Story Unforgettable.

Whether speaking in front of a small gathering or a large congregation, public speaking strikes fear into the heart of the bravest person. Plagued by stuttering and resultant school problems, John Walsh still found himself called to be a preacher. He has written The Art of Storytelling to encourage and teach anyone with a fear of public speaking how to speak successfully, confidently, and compellingly. This book is especially relevant for anyone preparing any form of weekly Bible teaching.
