Item Description...
Previously mentioned Power Communicators such as Larry King, Stephen Spielberg, Ted Koppel and Matthew Broderick are all media stars known around the world. In his day, Jesus life was fraught with adversity. He was raised in obscurity, received a basic education, operated in a tradesman environment, and enjoyed no family status, financial advantage or influential friends.
Yet, he mastered communication through ordinary, simple, common skill that astonished the rich, the powerful, the religious, the established, the privileged and the professional.
Jesus was a brilliant communicator. Few people in history have had the impact or demonstrated such capability without the benefit of the electronic media. He accomplished all of this before the age of 34. So how did he do it? What made him different than all other communicators? The short answer is to say he was God. The more challenging answer is to look closely and evaluate what we know of his work and teachings.
In evaluating Jesus methods of communication there are six distinct techniques that he uses over and over again. His approach, message development, presentation, imagery and audience interaction reflect what we modern day consultants and media experts identify as the distinct principles and structure of classic communication theory. I have termed Jesus approach the S.I.M.P.L.E. Method, which stands for the techniques of: Stories, Interaction, Multi-Track, Preparation, Love and Execution.
We have all heard that Jesus called some of the first disciples with the words, Come with me and I will make you fishers of men. What a terrific hook! The advertising world calls this a Branding Statement. But returning to the fishing image, the S.I.M.P.L.E.TM steps are tools this Master Communicator used for soul fishing.

To apply the Fisher of Men analogy, here is how the different steps work together.
S Stories and parables are like fishing lines, baskets or packages that tie together, hold and contain information so that it is easier to remember.
I Interaction is like hooks and bait that attract, engage and pull people into the message.
M Multi-Track means touching people on multiple levels simultaneously, which is like stretching and using a larger drag net to maximize the size of the catch.
P Preparation defines the content, materials and way the elements within a presentation, or net, are woven together.
L Love defines the passion, motivation and heart of the fishermen. Love provides the foundation of truth, integrity and commitment.
E Execution is the example, focus, commitment and follow-through that make the fishing expedition a reality. Execution unites will with disciple, direction and skill so that the goal is accomplished.

Jesus told his disciples that he would make them Fishers of Men. The S.I.M.P.L.E.TM Method defines the tools that this Master Communicator used for fishing. By applying these simple and powerful techniques, anyone can learn how to bait their hooks and cast their nets upon the oceans of the world to capture the hearts of men.
In the following chapters the steps of the S.I.M.P.L.E.TM Method are explained using scriptures and demonstrated using the presentation techniques of TV pros and journalists. Whether a high-profile CEO dealing with crisis media, a project manager, a pastor, a journalist, a teacher, a salesperson, a bible study leader or a parent, these time tested methods will help anyone shape and prepare a stronger message, ask better questions, improve listening skills, reduce communication conflict and cope with media disasters. The stories, practical examples, insider secrets, charts and applications will teach readers how to improve their professional, presentational and personal communication skills by learning how to Talk Like Jesus.

Caught by Surprise  Sep 27, 2008
This book was surpringly good. I had never considered Jesus in this way before, nor was I ready for how much there is to learn from how He communicated.

Don't skip over the profiles. They are gems, and show without fanfare how to weave 'story' into your communication.

As I read this book slowly over several weeks, I began to practice each principle as it was taught. But during those weeks, one question kept nagging at me: how did this book come to be? The patient reader will eventually be awarded that answer as well.
Well Done  Jul 24, 2008
Talk Like Jesus was logical and surprisingly biblical! The concepts that Lynn lay out are practical and I loved how she incorporated lessons from Christ throughout. She obviously understands the professional mindset and her book is well written, proving she understands her own methods.
Great Book- for EVERYONE!  Jan 18, 2008
I felt inspired to write a review for Lynn Scarborough's "Talk Like Jesus" because I have to admit, I was pleasantly surprised! I was received this book as a gift and was, at first, nervous that it would be too "preachy." But even as someone who considers herself to be more spiritual than religious, I truly found inspiration in Lynn's words. After reading her book, I am positive that my communication skills will will show improvement on every level and in every activity I pursue.

The format of the book is very accessible- it's easy to pick up and read a section or two every day (although I read it all in one sitting!) The quotes throughout are highly enjoyable and add to the overall reading experience- I love how varied they are. One second Ms. Scarborough is using Jesus' very words to instruct how to incorporate parables into your everyday and the next she's using David Letterman's "Top 10" list as an example of how to use fresh images and new vocabulary to make your words a reflection of YOU.

On the whole- great, helpful, thoroughly enjoyable book.
Be a Great Communicator  Jan 17, 2008
If you want to improve your communication -- whether it is for business, your personal life, or radio/television appearances -- this is a must read. Written by an expert in the field (who has coached many of the current television personalities), this book gives you the tools you need for success. Plus, the analogy to Jesus as the Master Communicator is a lot of fun -- why not adopt the style of the most widely read "hero" of a book?!?
