Great Lives: Chalres Swindoll

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

I would promote it as another book in Swindoll's series on men of God.

Any additional comments?

If you have been reading the other books in Charles Swindoll’s series about great men of God, then this is a must read. He continues his series with the biography of himself. All the discs in Part 1 except one small portion cover his life before he was called through the early days of his ministry. Part 2 covers every right decision he made to arrive in the beautiful life that he still enjoys today with added information on speaking. He tells us how blessed he was to have his wife, his children and all the churches to which he was called. He had the same struggles raising his children that many of us have and he helps us understand that although a circumstance may seem bad, it is all for God’s glory. This narrative is especially helpful for those who are evaluating God’s decision to bring them into the ministry and those who are just beginning their life in the ministry. I am a born again Christian and really appreciate the radio ministry that he has and how it can be a benefit to millions of people.The reader was a perfect fit for the topic of the book. His voice was pleasant, easy to listen to and helped make repetitive information easier to listen to. He added the credibility needed for an autobiography of a minister.With that said, I also deliver speeches and always appreciate help and tips from others on “How to Say It.” The information that Swindoll provides on this topic could fit onto one disk. It is so cloaked with stories of himself that you might have to go back to catch the paragraph or two that he has to offer on speaking. The information is in the line of be sincere, be yourself and speak from your heart. I will never listen to these discs again for information on speaking. It was like trying to find a needle in a haystack.

Best advice for preachers and teachers!

This audiobook is excellent for preachers and teachers, especially those handling Biblical passages! Chuck Swindoll is vulnerable, transparent, and entertaining with his personal stories and illustrations. He makes practical recommendations about each step in preparing and delivering a good sermon or lesson. The narrator is excellent and the book is one I will want to refer to again and again!

Enjoyable read

This is a christian testomial - it was interest to understand how a American christian thinks. This is not a book about how to speck, but how to say it well i.e. christian speck well.
I found the publishers reviews to be misleading and nothing to do with the book.

Excellent resource for Ministers !!!!

Hands down Charles Swindoll is a Master Orator!
Excellent stories of his calling and his journey to becoming a man of God who teaches the Gospel
with conviction. Chuck Swindoll masterfully weaves
his story into lessons in the pulpit for preachers! Also the Narrator does a good job in that he sounds like Chuck Swindoll, thought I was listening to Chuck’s voice at times.

Right ON!

Chuck Swindoll has been a favorite of mine for years! He's capable of sharing the training he received @ Dallas Theological Seminary where they're really serious about their work and at the same time, keeping his native sense of humor. I really appreciate that!

Insightful book

Pastor Swindoll helpfully gives encouragement and direction to those who give speeches. It really speaks to those in ministry but useful for teachers and anyone else who stands before others. I loved hearing about his life as well because Charles Swindoll knows how to “say it well.”

Read Extremely Slow

The book itself is great and I feel is a must for anyone peaching or who desires to preach. Great for a beginning book and a support book as well.

The reason I gave this a 4 stars is the recording it is read extremely slow. I listened to it at 1.5x and that still a little slower than normal speech.
