Learning to Talk Sheep

Understanding Those You Lead

Christoper W. Perry & C. Wayne Perry

Learning to Talk Sheep: Understanding Those You Lead Learning to Talk Sheep: Understanding Those You Lead uses the biblical image of the people of God as sheep, and the minister as their shepherd, to describe the major personality types of church members that every minister encounters. With full descriptions of the type of sheep, and how they are likely to respond in common situations, Christoper W. Perry and C. Wayne Perry also give concrete guidance for ministers to work more efficiently and effectively with those they shepherd. Learning to Talk Sheep enables ministers to help each member of their flock achieve their full potential.
