Getting Your Message Across
The Nuts & Bolts Guide to Preaching with an Interpreter
by Dr. Kim S. Pensinger

With over forty years of experience ministering cross-culturally, Kim Pensinger presents this “nuts-and-bolts” guide to interpretative communication, or the art of speaking in public through the use of an interpreter. He addresses the theory, preparation, delivery, debrief, challenges, and future of this critical ministry tool in an accessible way.

Speaking with an interpreter entails more than a word-for-word translation. We all live in different worlds, and reaching into a new world with the gospel of Christ requires cultural and linguistic sensitivity and understanding. Pastors, preachers, and international speakers will discover a wealth of support and practical resources in Getting Your Message Across and will be inspired to go beyond the boundaries of their own comfort zone.

This unique and relevant guide will make a highly-valued travel companion on the mission field and the speaking circuit. An essential addition to every preachers’ bookshelf!
