This book discusses the leadership succession problems in the African Apostolic Church of Johanne Marange (AACJM). Claimants are biologically related to each other, and they each selectively cite laws from African and western traditions to gain ascendancy to the position of church High Priest. The book explores how succession procedures can be improved to benefit the AACJM and other AICs. The study uses conflict as a creative way of dealing with contending issues of power. The book is critical of each procedure used, and suggests how to better approach this.
