¿Looking back across those precious years at Fairwinds, I was le
“Looking back across those precious years at Fairwinds, I was learning from Lass what it was that Christ, my Great Shepherd, wanted to do with me in His fields as His coworker.” This quotation epitomizes Phillip Keller’s “Lessons From a Sheepdog: A True Story of Tranforming Love.” This short but succinct work of nonfiction—complete with several black-and-white illustrations—chronicles the story of Lass, an abused border collie that the author rescued, and the ensuing friendship that grew between them. The first section relates Lass’s story and is then followed by seven sheep dog lessons which are analogous to those that the Christian must learn in their relationship with the Lord, presented as parables that compare the traits of a border collie and its master to those of the Christian and Christ. The book often reads like a sermon but is offered in a friendly and encouraging manner. For anyone who loves herding or working dogs and who wants to read a brief inspirational work on serving Christ, Keller’s story will suffice to meet these purposes and to encourage deeper thought and dedication.Was this review helpful?

Great book on working relationships
Keller tells the story of his search for God¿s presence in his life trough an engaging story about his working relationship with his first sheepdog Lass. Well written, it was a quick read that I finished in one evening. The parallels between Keller and Lass and Keller and God are well thought out. I also enjoyed this book from the view of a manager. Keller wrote the book about the working relationship between God and man through the story of his dog, but, I found most of the ideas translate directly to managing of people. Good read. I highly recommend it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
