Review by Pastor Chris Pierce • Working with people can be a very difficult task. When God asks you to step up into a leadership role, it can be a daunting prospect, even moreso when you realize that you do not know how to guide people to be the most that they can be.
The Way of the Shepherd walks you through seven godly management principles learned from tending sheep, and Leman and Pentak demonstrate how to engage, energize, and ignite the people in your groups to be effective and productive. This book is one that transcends both spiritual and nonreligious barriers; the principles can be applied to any work place, group, or activity.
I stumbled upon this book while unpacking all of the volumes that my wife owned before we were married. Reading it transformed the ways in which I work with volunteers at church as well as with my students at school. I have since given out approximately twenty copies of this book to individuals at church and school — such is my enthusiasm for the information herein! — and I have watched numerous groups be transformed as the leaders applied these godly principles. If you lead and guide people in any setting in life, you don’t want to miss this great resource!
