This is a study manual for training elders. It needs no separate study guide, because it is auto-didactic. The reader answers practical questions and reads relevant Scripture passages.
We recommend studying the book with a pastor or mentor, and in groups if possible.
We recommend that the mentor evaluate the study simply by noting the percentage of the study guide that has been properly filled out.
The author gives the following description of the book:
"Shepherding is Jesus' recommended method for making disciples. We can learn from Him and His disciples how to care for, lead, and nurture God's flocks in our own churches."
