Dr. Marvin A. Moss is not afraid to tell it like it is. He examines leadership from the vantage point of an ordained minister, especially one who has been appointed to a new field of labor. He uses his personal experiences to make a point, and helps the reader to avoid common 'landmines'. This book has my full endorsement and deep appreciation. It is written in clear and compelling language. Next is a must read for local church pastors, lay leaders, nomination and lay leadership committees and personal committees.

The only constant in life is Change. I don't know who said this, but it is so true. Next: Surviving A Leadership Transition is all about change, and the trials and tribulations of how we accept change. Delicately and appropriately, Pastor Marvin Moss tells about his successful journeys through change. He skillfully provides a roadmap for the leader who must move through one formidable change after another, while maintaining a compassionate heart and a courageous soul. This is called growth!
