Discipling the Flock is a short book to help church leaders bring about heart-based change in the lives of the people they shepherd, through the personal ministry of the Word.
Here is an urgent appeal to return to authentic discipleship; here is a call to shepherds to be tenacious in their preaching of the whole counsel of God, and tender in their application of its truth to the lives of God’s sheep through their personal ministry.
Dr. Paul Tautges has been in gospel ministry since 1992 and currently serves as senior pastor of Cornerstone Community Church (EFCA) in Cleveland, Ohio. Paul is the author of many books including Comfort the Grieving, Counseling One Another, and Pray About Everything, and serves as the series editor for the LifeLine Mini-books. He is also an adjunct professor, and blogs at CounselingOneAnother.com.
