    2. The original title was "How to Prepare a Bible Talk", and it was a more accurate title. This is a general introduction to praparing and giving a bible talk, with very helpful and practical chapters on various aspects. The second half of the book does contain advice for speaking at special events (e.g. weddings, funerals etc)

    3. Does what it wants to do very well. Good, short introduction to preaching with a lot of helpful tips.
