An engaging history of the Shepherding Movement, an influential and controversial expression of the charismatic renewal in the 1970s and 1980s. This neopentecostal movement, led by popular Bible teachers Ern Baxter, Don Basham, Bob Mumford, Derek Prince and Charles Simpson, became a house church movement in the United States. The Shepherding Movement is a case study of an attempt at renewing church structures. Many critics accused the movement of being authoritarian because of its emphasis on submission to a personal pastor or "shepherd" as they termed it.

About the Author:

S.David Moore is Associate Professor at the LIFE Pacific College;Founding Pastor of the New Hope Church, Manteca and teaching Fellow at the Regent University,Virginia Beach.

Review:

“His writing style is accessible and with the sensitivity of a former member who has not left with bitterness, yet the requisite dispassion of a scholar-historian, Moore has indeed provided anyone interested in an examination of the Charismatic movement with a vital source. His academic ‘testimony’ can provide us all with insight.” –RRT (Reviews in Religion and Theology), 12.1, 2/05

"This is a timely book that needs to be read by those who are serious about ecclesiological matters, Pentecostal ecumenism, and, most important, theological reflection on the various types of house church/ cell/ emerging church movements. Moore shows us how the individuals who may be driven by the best intentions may end up doing things that harm the witness and the mission of the church.... Moore succeeds in providing his readers with the story of a movement intended to renew the church."- PNEUMA, Spring 2005, Vol. 27, No. 1

(Pneuma: A Journal Of The Society For Pentecostal Studies)

"This is the first scholarly study to appear of the Discipling/Shepherding movement which flourished in the 1970's and 1980's. David Moore has undertaken thorough research and has produced a book which is both historically incisive and highly readable. For those readers who want an account of the way in which the American movement advanced, stirred up intense controversy and then disintegrated, this book is superb." -Ecclesiastical History, Vol 56/3 July 2005



"...David Moore's The Shepherding Movement is a timely work and a source for reflection on the short history of an ecclesiastical movement, showing the pitfalls, successes and lessons to be learned from it.... The text is clear and to the point, providing a concise presentation of information. The book is not laden with burdensome or obscure theological language that would hinder the reader's full comprehension of its contents, thus The Shepherding Movement could easily be recommended reading for students of Pentecostal/Charismatic church history and pastors serving in that tradition."- Raymond Reid, Encounter
