Book Review

June 14, 2007

Dr. Mitch Carnell, an author, speaker, and consultant on effective communication, recently wrote a review of my book For God's Sake, Shut Up!: Lessons for Christians on How to Speak Effectively and When to Remain Silent. He offered:

Brian Kaylor has written a wonderful hymn book for the Return to Christian Civility Choir of which I am a card carrying member. ... Although Kaylor is at times flippant and somewhat cavalier, he has accomplished his purpose in pointing out that many Christians would be much better witnesses for Christ if they would keep their mouths tightly closed.

He employs scriptural quotations effectively and has laced his small book with wonderful poignant examples of the excess of religious babble. His criticism is sharp and to the heart. ... He is an excellent story teller.
By the way, Carnall was the insipration for "Say Something Nice Sunday," which I wrote about here.
