Product Description

On the shore of the sea of Tiberias, the resurrected Lord appeared to his disciples. Three times he asked Peter, "Lovest thou me?" Each time, Peter answered, "Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee," and the Lord replied, "Feed my sheep."

In our time, too, the Lord calls leaders to feed his sheep— in their Church callings, in the family, and in everyday life. In Feed My Sheep: Leadership Ideas for Latter-day Shepherds, Elder Alexander B. Morrison of the First Quorum of the Seventy explains how we can fulfill our responsibilities as under-shepherds of the Lord. Using a wealth of fascinating examples from science, history, and personal experience, he reminds us of the trust that is involved in watching over the flock and discusses such facets of leadership as diligence, communication skills, courage, perseverance, and following in the footsteps of the Good Shepherd.

However, Elder Morrison writes, "this is not a 'how-to-do-it' book on leadership techniques; such can be found in nearly every book shop in the land. Nor is this publication intended as a definitive treatise on secular leadership as practiced in the world. My intention is more humble: I desire to provide the Lord's undershepherds with some principles to guide them in their tasks, that they might be good and faithful servants. . . .

"As we follow in His footsteps, our lives will change. We will become more effective and obedient servants, better human beings, more like the Good Shepherd in whose cause we labor."
