DR. LORE' L. CHAMBERS,
"I received the book and I'm very excited after just reading the prologue and starting the first chapter. So honest about what we are facing in our churches and how we have to literally fight to preserve our ministries from people on the inside that don't want to see them succeed. I needed this information for just this season. If you have not blessed anyone else, you have blessed me and confirmed what I have been experiencing. But God, as long as we keep Him first we will be victorious."
