Most preaching and teaching in the church engages only one of the senses---hearing. In The Power of Multisensory Preaching and Teaching, Rick Blackwood shows how recognizing and engaging the multiple senses of the congregation can lead to greater impact. Blackwood presents both biblical evidence and scientific research showing that the more senses we stimulate in teaching and preaching, the greater the levels of learner attention, comprehension, and retention. Blackwood addresses both the 'why' and the 'how' of multisensory communication. Regardless of one's current skill level, this practical book can help anyone add multi-sensory elements to messages in order to take communication to the next level---more compelling, clear, and memorable. As a result of reading this book readers can be more effective as a communicator and teacher. The book includes tools, examples, and worksheets.

Review:

We have all heard the statistics, that listeners retain a lot more of what we are saying if we can help them to do more than simply hear it. Believing the statistics to be true, we have dabbled with object lessons, drama, and PowerPointTM, all in the effort to utilize a broader range of sensory appeal. Finally, now we have a resource that confirms what we have long suspected. Rich Blackwood not only gives us the research, but he gives us a method that is practical, sustainable, and steeped in expository conviction. This is a book for preachers that are already good at what they do, increasing their communication quotient so as to deepen their listener's engagement with the Word. -- Kenton C. Anderson, Author of Choosing to Preach, and www.preaching.org
