Product Description

According to Anderson there are two types of leaders: those who tower over everybody and those who quietly get down and dirty with the struggles of ordinary people. Which was Jesus? Building on principles in his bestseller, Anderson shares practical strategies for shepherding like Christ---who did the messy work of living with and loving God's people.

Publisher's Description

Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life. -- Proverbs 4:23

They Smell like Sheep, Volume 2: Leading with the Heart of a Shepherd is about more than gimmicks and techniques of leadership. It speaks to the character and heart of the leader. After all, heart makes the difference in an effective Sunday-school teacher, youth minister, elder, small-group leader, parent, grandparent, or Christian school teacher.

Spiritual sheep, stray sheep, and searching sheep aren't nearly as concerned about the knowledge and skill of the shepherd as they are about his heart. When finding their way -- at weddings, at funerals, during family crises, and in the hospital -- sheep go to a shepherd in whom they discern God's own heart, like King David of old.

Jesus said sheep would know their shepherd's voice and be drawn to it. It is the heart behind the voice that soothes and comforts God's people.

How do you measure the influence of a godly shepherd? Without doubt, it's the heart of the shepherd that most powerfully shapes lives and souls in our flocks.

If you want your own heart shaped and molded into the likeness of Christ, this book is an excellent place to begin.

Be shepherds of God's flock under your care... as God wants you to be.

Heeding the call to be a leader is an awesome responsibility. Whether you have been called to serve as a minister or you're teaching an adult Bible study group or you're a teen leading the youth group in song, most assuredly from time to time you question your abilities and look for support and example.

Author Lynn Anderson addresses the starting and ending place of true leadership among God's people: the heart of a shepherd. He presents Jesus, the Head Shepherd, as our only reliable model of godly leadership; he guides us through the Scriptures and gives us practical exercises to strengthen our hearts as we do the difficult yet rewarding work of shepherding people of God with love and grace.

Enter the book's pages with the confidence that you are being led by someone who has the heart of a shepherd and who sees himself first as a smelly sheep, dearly loved and led by the Good Shepherd.

And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory. -- 1 Peter 5:4

Editorial Reviews

"I'm into my third decade of Lynn Anderson admiration. Few communicators speak with such tender conviction and practical admonition. This book, in particular, reminds us to steer away from stiff styles of corporate leadership and find our model in the tenderhearted pastor. Lynn has achieved God's grace, we can as well." -- Max Lucado, senior minister, Oak Hills Church, and New York Times bestselling author
"They Smell like Sheep taught us what to do to be effective leaders and particularly effective shepherds. In They Smell like Sheep, Volume 2, Lynn Anderson provides wonderful insights and practical advice on how to cultivate our hearts in order to be effective leaders -- Mesquite Bush Leaders." -- Ron Miller, retired vice president, Procter & Gamble, and Hope Network board member
"When I was just starting in ministry, no one shared his heart with me more than Lynn Anderson. He was a friend, a mentor, a guide, and an example. Now he has put into print what he has put into practice for forty years. Read and be blessed. The book is almost as good as the man." -- Rick Atchley, senior minister, Richland Hills Church of Christ
