Shepherds After My Own Heart: Pastoral Traditions and Leadership in the Bible by Timothy Laniak

Shepherds After My Own Heart: Pastoral Traditions and Leadership in the Bible

This book is a full-length academic treatment of the theme of the shepherd/pastor throughout the whole of scripture. It comprises a detailed study of Ancient Near Eastern understandings of this powerful metaphor, its uses and development in the Old Testament and its employment by the apostolic writers to describe the messianic significance of Jesus Christ, both in his earthly ministry and in his ascended and apocalyptic Lordship over church and world. In doing so, it articulates key elements of a biblical theology of pastoral ministry and leadership.
