Howard Books They Smell Like Sheep: Spiritual Leadership for the 21st Century

In They Still Smell Like Sheep Lynn Anderson challenges us to set aside the illusion of "professional" ministry in order that we can do the difficult and dirty, yet ultimately beautiful work of living with and loving God's people. Through clear biblical teaching as well as engaging anecdotes, Dr. Anderson will teach you how to fulfill Christ's commandment to "love one another as I have loved you" in a number of practical ways.

We are using this book in a small group study at church. It has been a great book for all levels of learning and ideas about church leadership. We have had a great time with this study.

When I first saw the title I thought the book was about the flock. But the author soon made it apparent that it is the pastors who should smell like their sheep through close proximity. I agree with the author that the mission of pastors is to be among the people they care for instead of leading from a corner office. Mr. Anderson's volume 2 in this series builds upon the concepts presented here. If you like these books you will also like "Simple Church: Returning to God's Process for Making Disciples."

This book should be compulsory reading in every seminary worldwide. The concepts described are so powerful yet so simply described that it is difficult to understand why Pastors, Elders and Christians everywhere have not followed these principles.In Satan's world, "leadership" has been perverted into "having the power and authority to control" rather than being a simple concept of "service".This book is light and easy to read and, while listing references to the Bible, does not clutter up the flow of the text with them.A very highly recommended read!

Americans have little idea what shepherding is. We do, however, understand Madison Avenue and the military. The Bible idea of shepherding must be studied in the context of a foreign culture where shepherding sheep took place. Smell Like Sheep helps the reader to get a biblical (vs. Madison Ave. or military) view of leadership. One learns best from the master/good shepherd. Lynn Anderson is pointing church leaders back to a biblical type of leadership based on service and being among the sheep/other believers. I highly recommend it.
