Anderson, Lynn. They Smell Like Sheep. West Monroe, LA: Howard Publishing, 1997.

Anderson uses the models of shepherds, mentors, and equippers to explore biblical concepts of leadership which can address the present and future needs of the Christian community. Elders who wish to transition from decision-makers and board members to shepherds will find the book rich with insights, illustrations from life, and principles to guide a renewed commitment to fulfilling Godís plan and practice for church leaders. Anderson calls the church and its leaders to revision how leaders are chosen, focusing on the servant nature of leadership and the need to choose leaders by different criteria than those typical of the corporate world.
