Praise for the Print Edition
Thankfully not everyone has the gift of gab or the world would be far too noisy. But, everyone does need to know how to communicate with clarity and effectiveness. In this respect, Bert Decker, through his outstanding material, helps all of us find our way toward successful communication. Better yet, his work is grounded in the very principles which the one who designed us in the first place has given to us in His Word.
