“Andy Stanley refuses to stand up and preach until he knows the answer to two questions. He reveals these questions in his newest book, Communicating For a Change, which is co-authored with Lane Jones. The questions are (drum roll, please!) . . .
1. What is the one thing I want my audience to know?
2. What do I want them to do about it?
Andy writes: “Those are two frustrating questions. I have pushed back from my computer on many occasions thinking I’m finished with my prep, when it occurs to me I have three pages of outline but I don’t have an answer for those two questions” (p. 104).”
