What many people perceive as a problem with the Christian church is actually a problem with church leaders. Michael Blue tells readers that not all these problems are imagined, and that trust and integrity issues can be fixed, but not without awareness and commitment to change. Bishop Blue takes readers through a well-developed study of the many ways in which the church has veered away from its original mission, and become a reflection of the culture, rather than the powerful influence Christ intended. Readers will come to understand the responsibility of servant leaders to model personal and professional integrity at every level, thereby, restoring trustworthiness to the church and the cause of Christ.
Michael Blue has been the pastor of The Door of Hope Christian Church since 1992. He also serves as the presiding prelate of the Christian Covenant Fellowship of Ministries. He is the recipient of several ecclesiastical and community service honors, and was awarded the distinction of Doctor of Humanities by Francis Marion University, his alma mater, in 2010. Bishop Blue is a disciple, husband, father, psalmist, and student of the Word.
"This erudite, eloquent, and immensely thought-provoking work gets to the heart of one of the most important aspects of true leadership. It is indispensable reading for all progressive leaders and professionals who want to live life above the norm. This is a profound authoritative work, spanning the wisdom of the ages yet breaking new ground in its approach." (From the Foreword)
Dr. Myles Munroe, Bahamas Faith Ministries International,

"In a culture where the obvious is often conveniently overlooked, this text takes a refreshing look at age-old principles for leadership and followship. Thoroughly rooted in Scripture and sensibly colored by tradition, this work will prove to be a vital tool in equipping and preparing church and corporate leaders for years to come. Bishop Blue argues with sensitivity and purpose, creating a safe context for discourse on some of the most difficult dimensions of church relationships as it pertains to leadership. This is necessary reading for all who desire to be more effective followers and leaders for the kingdom of God."

"Secondary leaders are much like thoroughbred stallions, full of strength and power, but able to run aimlessly without guidance or direction. Through this book, Bishop Michael Blue meets that challenge for leadership by constructing the tool equivalent to the pedigrees bit, which is attached to the bridle, to harness that power and give direction, supervision, and instruction. The application of this concept allows senior leadership consistent forward motion without opposition
from those in the ancillary position."

"Building Credibility In Leadership is one of the greatest works on this subject of our time. Bishop Michael Blue not only defines, clarifies, and gives structure to the responsibilities of primary leadership; he also articulates carefully and clearly the importance, value, and responsibility of secondary leadership. This book should be required reading as it will instruct, affirm, and strengthen those who desire to take their knowledge, understanding, and execution of leadership responsibilities to another dimension."

"A must read for all the flock of God."
