Follows the story of Lass, who is transformed from a believed-worthless and untrainable animal into a valuable sheepdog by a man's love, explaining how Lass's story reflects the transforming love of God.Publishers Description
What you see is not always what you get - and this true story of a man and his dog is no exception. Woven just under the surface of this simple parable, Keller presents profound spiritual truth. It is the story of Lass, a worthless animal thought to be untrainable, who becomes a magnificent and valuable sheepdog - not terribly unlike how God's love can transform our worst characteristics into blessings that serve to further His Kingdom. Allow yourself to see Biblical truth in this classic tale of what can happen when you yield to the Master.

|Engaging, light read - recommend for all Oct 8, 2006|
|This book is warm story that shows the relationship of trust and loyalty built between an abused dog and his new owner. I highly recommend it to any and all.|
Worthy of a re-read from time to time. Among other messages, a gentle reminder of the spirit of service we are all meant to demonstrate!
|Great book for dog lovers Jul 8, 2006|
|I gave this book to a friend for her birthday. She has a dog just like Lass and could relate very closely to the author's experiences. She loved the book. I am reading it now and agree completely. Great book for any dog lover.|

|Be sure to get this little book to go with "A shepherd looks at psalm 23". It will open you eyes to your relationship with our good shepherd and it may put you to shame as to how willing are you to follow His call.|

|Did you know that not all things have to be taught by people? In Lessons from a Sheep Dog By Phillip Keller you will learn things from sheep dogs you thought could only be taught by people.|
Lass, a non well trained sheep dog, teaches the farmer about discipline, trust, and love. Although Lass wasn't trained the farmer learned that he needs to show Lass who is in charge. Also he learns that if he doesn't trust Lass then Lass will just be stuck as a puppy forever. Then love because Lass was more then a sheep dog she was the farmers best friend. This story was told in the narrator point of view. The author kind of wrote in a creative way because he didn't straight up tell that Lass was teaching the farmer about life but you could still tell that that is what the author was trying to get through our brains. This story takes place on a farm. One connection I made was "I like this character because he knows how to show Lass who is boss."
This book was pretty good and I would recommend this novel to people who like dog books. This book was also exciting and loving.

|Snappy title and beautiful picture on the cover!|
I bought this book form my granddaughter so that she could read a story about Sheep Dogs. Instead I find it is nothing more than a book about infiltration and imposition.
I think books also should have a rating system to prevent people from wasting their money. G, PG, R, X, XXX, and, "JJJ," for jesus freak literature.
