I was required to read this book for a class which is sometimes a god thing and many times a disappointment. This book did not disappoint. The author uses the life of Moses to demonstrate the need for different modes of leadership for different situations and different season of the the life of a church and a pastor. I know as pastors we have a lot we would like to read and it is sometimes hard to choose. This book is worth the investment in time.
