Written as a heartwarming contemporary parable, this book points you beyond worn-out fads and flavor-of-the-month management techniques to the strategies that will make you a truly outstanding leader. Find inspiration and a fresh perspective on the art of leadership in this account of a cub reporter who lands the interview of a lifetime and walks away with the keys to exceptional leadership. When the reporter meets with the most respected CEO in America, the businessman shares the seven secrets he learned long ago from his mentor--an eccentric but brilliant professor who taught him proven management principles that, while ancient in origin, are applicable in today's fast-paced, high-tech world. Through this charming story dotted with humor, you'll learn how to infuse work with meaning and how to engage, energize, and ignite their workforce by using these same secrets, which include: Respect your employees and they will follow you Know their hopes and personalities Instill a sense of group identification and trust Give 100% from the heart at all times It will teach you how to lead the people close to you so they will view their work as a calling rather than merely a job, a place to belong rather than a place to work. It is a powerful metaphor for leaders that reaches back 5,000 years. It is . . . The Way of the Shepherd.

THE SUNDAY TIMES NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER 'Affectionate, evocative, illuminating. A story of survival - of a flock, a landscape and a disappearing way of life. I love this book' Nigel Slater 'Triumphant, a pastoral for the 21st century' Helen Davies, Sunday Times, Books of the Year 'The nature publishing sensation of the year, unsentimental yet luminous' Melissa Harrison, The Times, Books of the Year Some people's lives are entirely their own creations. James Rebanks' isn't. The first son of a shepherd, who was the first son of a shepherd himself, he and his family have lived and worked in and around the Lake District for generations. Their way of life is ordered by the seasons and the work they demand, and has been for hundreds of years. A Viking would understand the work they do: sending the sheep to the fells in the summer and making the hay; the autumn fairs where the flocks are replenished; the gruelling toil of winter when the sheep must be kept alive, and the light-headedness that comes with spring, as the lambs are born and the sheep get ready to return to the fells.

I have embodied in The Way to God and How to Find It a considerable part of several addresses which have been delivered in different cities, both of Great Britain and my own country. God has graciously owned them when spoken from the pulpit, and I trust will none the less add his blessing now they have been put into the printed page with additional matter. -Dwight Moody

In answer to the unique needs of pastors and Christian leaders, Richard Earl has developed an impressive collection of 52 profound thoughts for the "Shepherds of God's Flock," intended for use on Monday mornings, when the leader's spiritual fuel tank is sometimes low. The entries are drawn from some of the most powerful Christian authors and thinkers. Specifically aimed at those who sometimes feel that they toil in obscurity, it is our hope that this little volume will serve as a healing salve of sorts in the life of the shepherd. The book contains weekly devotional thoughts, scripture, quotes, exercises and space for journaling and has been widely praised for hitting the mark. Endorsements: "Richard Earl has compiled a wonderful collection of Monday morning devotionals for the pastor from 52 of the church's greatest writers. They are choice, golden nuggets that will challenge the mind and encourage the spirit." George O. Wood, General Superintendent of the Assemblies of God I don't recall how I ran across Shepherds Balm but it has released an "umph" in my spiritual life. I usually don't read devotional books, but Shepherds Balm captured me all the way through. I rate "inner life" books according to how they stir up my heart versus any other possible consideration. Richard's book stirred me big time! I reread some of the entries to fully soak in what the Spirit spoke to me. If you are looking for a new release of the Spirit's presence, pick this up and be a sponge with it. I've been reading a section on Monday mornings, and have found it extremely comforting. The work of ministry is often depleting. Quite often we wonder whether we're making a difference. And generally speaking there isn't a whole lot of glamour associated with it, though there are many opportunities which if not at the moment in retrospect are truly blessings. Anyway, thank you for the gift. And please know that for a least one of us, it has made a real difference. Steve Hollinger "Richard Earl has crafted an eloquent collage of prose and poetry, images and journaling space, to soothe a pastor's soul and heal emotional wounds-in short, a first-aid kit filled with psychological and spiritual supplies that help pastors stay fit while tending the Lord's flock." Dan Montgomery, Ph.D., Psychologist, author of Pastoral Counseling & Coaching "What a great book, and it could not have come at a better time. I opened it up last night, and read the entire book. I am looking forward to reading it again. I'm sure I missed something." Roger Fudge- pastor in Connecticut ...the book is brilliant. So rich and deep. I think it is on its way to becoming a classic if pastors can grab a hold of how good it is! Shelley Carl- Missionary to Japan

Jonathon Lookadoo guides readers through the early Christian apocalypse known as the Shepherd of Hermas, providing a clear overview of the numerous literary, historical, and theological insights that this text contains for those researching early Christianity. Dividing his exploration into two sections, Lookadoo first introduces the Shepherd by providing an overview of the text to those with limited familiarity, while also focusing on critical issues such as authorship, date, and the Shepherd's complex manuscript tradition and reception history. He then moves to examine the interpretation of particular passages in detail, and by close exploration of theological and literary features he is able to contextualize the Shepherd alongside contemporary contexts. This volume covers the important thematic issues in the Shepherd, and also provides a fresh perspective that arises from a thoroughly textual focus; in so doing, Lookadoo enables readers to engage both with the Shepherd itself and the scholarship that surrounds the text.

With over two million church leaders working in the more than ten million parishes, congregations, seminaries, and houses of religious formation around the world, it is important that all the people of God of every church have selfless church leaders who reflect the mind of Christ. But how can church leaders learn to be true shepherds like Jesus, whose selfless sacrifice of his life for his people set the standard for the pastoral ministry? The Ministry of the Shepherd and the Church in Africa draws on a wide range of Old and New Testament texts to develop the biblical theology of the shepherd Ministry which encourages right shepherding and evangelization in the world of self-serving leadership styles. Focusing especially on the example of pastoral ministry in Africa, author and priest, Cletus Chukwudi Imo explores some of the underlying attitudes of the pastor and the laity, and challenges church leaders to adopt a role as shepherds and servantsnot as self-serving mastersso that they can lead, guide, and teach their congregations as Christ would. Because it can be easy for church leaders to get wrapped up in the sociocultural, political, and economic concerns of their parishes, it is important for these church leaders to shed an undue focus on these concerns instead of shepherd their flocks. By modeling their lives and leadership on the ideals of Jesus, church leadersincluding priests, religious, lecturers, seminarians, and even lay-Christian parents alikecan become true servants and shepherds, honoring the example of Jesus, the Good Shepherd

Charismatic David Kennard lives a life most people can only dream about. Farming on a spectacularly beautiful part of the Devon coast he has an almost telepathic bond with nature and with his working sheepdogs. His is a life filled with daily challenges, from the battles with wild Atlantic weather to the dramas of clifftop rescue, but it is also a life full of the richness of rebirth, and the Herriotesque delight in a way of life that has remained almost untouched by the modern world. Part diary, part homage to the countryside and the canine family that is so much a part of his life, David Kennard's extraordinary book is designed to touch the hearts and minds of city and country dwellers alike.
