Modern training for modern shepherds. Back to basics for shepherds' spiritual growth. Who qualifies as a shepherd? How can the local church restore the shepherding model of leadership? Why do shepherds need training? Why a leader's attitude more important than his intelligence or talent? These are some of the questions answered by J.J. Turner in this book. Turner takes a look at what the Bible reveals about the qualifications, skills, actions, work, and character of elders in the body of Christ.
