I appreciated the concluding observations and reflections of Timothy Laniak, specifically his first one on p. 247, where he stated: "shepherd leadership is comprehensive in scope. It represents a diverse and changing 'role set'. For the sake of convenience we have in places summarized the inter-related pastoral roles as protector, provider and guide. To be a good shepherd and this is consistently the biblical concern--means to be accountable for the lives and well-being of the sheep." A pastor/shepherd is one who knows how to effectively balance his or her authority over, and care for, his or her followers (sheep) in such a way, that he or she is giving out at great personal cost to protect and care for his or her followers (sheep).
