What you see is not always what you get - and this true story of a man and his dog is no exception. Woven just under the surface of this simple parable, Keller presents profound spiritual truth. It is the story of Lass, a worthless animal thought to be untrainable, who becomes a magnificent and valuable sheepdog - not terribly unlike how God's love can transform our worst characteristics into blessings that serve to further His Kingdom. Allow yourself to see Biblical truth in this classic tale of what can happen when you yield to the Master.

Customer Reviews for Lessons from a Sheep Dog - eBook
"Lessons from a Sheep Dog" is an extremely heart-warming, charming and loving book filled with moments that will touch your heart and speak to your soul. Its amazing what one of God's amazing little creatures can teach us, if we only listen with our heart.
This is a book I give to graduating students who have a love for animals. It is not restricted to only that type of person. It is an easy read; full of thought provoking insights parallel with our relationship with God. Love this book. CBD always gives great deals and delivery has been problem free for me.
I saw thiis book on one of your emaills and as I have a Border Collie of my own I wanted to read someone else`s experiance of one.Well written and enjoyable. an easy read and it is now in my wifes pile of books to read.
This is a fantastic little book. I enjoy all of Phillip Keller's books, but use this one for high school graduation presents. I also used it to teach church camp lessons while in Northern Ireland. They really understand sheepdogs there, and the children seemed to enjoy it.
I gave this book to a young woman who loves dogs. She is a new and enthusiastic Christian, and I remember what an impact the book had on me at her age. I highly recommend it as an excellent example of how the Lord loves us unconditionally, desires that we use our talents to the fullest, and waits patiently for us to return to Him, even when we wander in the hills of confusion and fear.
Bought this book on a whim with Phillip Keller's "A Shepherd looks at Psalm 23". Was going to give both to my 16 year old niece. Ended up keeping this one and giving it to a friend instead. Am in the process of buying more to pass on. The analogy between the relationship of God & man and this man & his dog made God's truth come to light. I loved it.
Very Disappointed in this purchase. I was expecting a full size hardcover edition. I had purchased this for a friend for a Christmas gift. In the description on-line when I ordered it didn't specify the size and for the price I expected more. Would have returned it but it wasn't worth it to me to have to pay the shipping to return it.
It's a little confusing in the beginning when the entire story is told, then retold with each lesson. The spiritual lessons are biblically sound and well illustrated throughout the story. It gives pause to a bit of soul searching if not one's own comparisoin in their spiritual walk to the author's allegories and discoveries.
This book is a short quick read; very engaging, thoughtful and thought provoking. One of my favorites! I'm giving several people this book for Christmas because it so beautifully illustrates our relationship with The Good Shepherd. I love it!!
I enjoyed this book! It is a true story. The author not only shares his love and devotion for his dog, but connects each lesson he taught the dog to spiritual truths. I feel it would be a great book to share with someone who needs the Lord in their life.
