Overview
"Spiritual Leadership in the 21st Century"

What kind of leadership will effectively lead the church into the morally turbulent twenty-first century? The same kind of leadership that led it through the morally and politically chaotic first century. Shepherding.

This is the kind of leadership Jesus used, and this is the kind of leadership that will take his church where he wants it to go. While the term "shepherd" produces warm images of love, care, and tenderness, it also describes a form of leadership that is perilously protective, dangerous, dirty, and smelly. "Shepherd" is something that every follower of Christ, the Good Shepherd, is called to become.

Lynn Anderson, in this important book, leads us backwards in time to discover and identify the biblical leader for the future needs of the Christian community. Anderson¿s deep dig for truth will concern, convict, and confront us about where leadership has been, and will set a new standard for where the future leader must go.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Nice Intro to Eldership  Jul 17, 2008
This book is a good tool to introduce the leadership (eldership) of the local church to eldership. This book is a non-confrontational way to show what elders ought to be doing, especially since many elders in the local church do not have a firm grasp of what they're supposed to be doing. The book is best used as a "baby step" into deeper studies with the elders in the church.

On the other hand, it must be kept in mind that the book is primarily an introduction to biblical eldership. The emphasis is upon the word "introduction." Don't expect any in-depth Bible study. There are many stories and illustrations throughout the text to the point of being superfluous. In other words, it is like a typical (fluffy) practical ministry book.

Doctrinally, the book is conservative and does a decent job outlining the biblical teaching about eldership, like shepherding, mentoring, and equipping. It also discusses briefly the qualifications of an elder. However, there are a few biblical texts which the author takes out of context. So, one has to be watchful for this.

In short, the book is recommended to be used for simply an introduction. Do not expect anything too didactic.
 
Church Leadership  Jul 7, 2008
The book offers some good advice on what it takes to be a leader in the Church. Most of the ideas are just common sense, worth the time to read. Keep a copy of the Scripture close at hand to look up the references.
 
An easy yet challenging read  Jun 26, 2008
They Smell Like Sheep: Spiritual Leadership for the 21st Century
A very well written work with many examples
 
Great Primer on biblical leadership  Feb 24, 2008
Anderson does a great job at defining the function of biblical leadership. Too many churches are hampered by appointing leaders who have not shown any propensitiy to lead (i.e. they lack a 'flock'), or are appointed for reasons which do not match with the biblical characteristics put forth by both Peter and Paul (i.e. heavy donator, family connection, et. al.). No church needs "Positional" leaders - all churches need and long for "Functional" leaders.

If you are looking for a good, well written, easy to read book that can not only open up discussion among your current leadership but also help you to recognize your true biblical leaders for the future, then this book is a must read - and a must discuss among your leadership.
 
One Way to Lead  Sep 29, 2007
This is a Kingdom Focused book. If you are seeking your denominational character here, you probably will not find it. It's new, but it's not, the ideas that are presented. The forms Dr. Anderson brings to the forefront are his interpretations of Administration in the Church or at least a Biblical formation of the Church and its Leaders.

He points out that many of today's "rules of governing" are not biblical, but are hierarchical in the traditions of men. Dr. Anderson points out terms that are not cherished in today's church, such as Pastor or Shepherd.

This book resembles the Word of God in ways that will take you back to look at yourself. Much as the way the book of James does. When you read this study, you'll find yourself doing a "Check-up" on yourself. Perhaps even bringing in some "Ethics" of Ministry.

Buy this one!

In Christ, Amen.
