Bishop Eddie Long, the pastor of one of the largest churches in Atlanta, confronts the modern American church as being self-centered, introverted, and more interested in entertainment than in ministry. But he doesn't simply indict the church without giving answers. Taking Over includes Long's innovative--and sometimes controversial--ideas, which are causing city leaders to look to him, and to God, for answers. This unprecedented book will bring the church into the new millennium, ready to reign and bring God's solutions to society's problems.
Bishop Eddie L. Long is the pastor of the eighteen-thousand member New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in Atlanta, Georgia. he serves as the third-ranking official of the full Gospel Baptist church Fellowship (FGBCF), headed by Bishop Paul Morton.
