Indigenous church leadership is a new phenomenon in North Africa. Until recently, non-Muslim background believers were the only leaders of churches in this region. With the current growth of national churches there are increasingly more leaders from a Muslim background leading to a diverse range of leadership styles. This publication, a first of its kind to specifically explore church leadership in North Africa, investigates common values, beliefs and cultures among church leaders. Using four identified leadership styles the author further expands by looking at the impact they have on congregations, society and the future development of church leaders in the region.

Editorial Reviews

Farida approaches the subject with the insight and respect achieved through leading to faith and nurturing hundreds of Muslims in France and North Africa. Drawing from the leadership styles in the cultures and history of the latter region, including its ancient and contemporary church, she examines them through the lens of biblical leadership values and discerns guidelines that are both culturally relevant and biblical.J. Dudley WoodberryDean Emeritus and Senior Professor of Islamic Studies School of Intercultural Studies Fuller Theological Seminary, California, USADr. Saïdi has done a remarkable job in advancing the re ection and proposing concrete and credible models, developed under the scrutiny of biblical teaching and deeply rooted in the history and culture of North Africa, with input from her vast and lengthy experience in the eld. One would search in vain for another book on the subject with the same pertinence, depth of research, quality of presentation and practical outlook. Highly recommended.Amar DjaballahDean and professor of Biblical Studies Facult de Th ologie Évang lique de Montr al, A liated with Acadia University
