"Part insightful biblical exegesis, part practical manual grounded in wisdom and experience, Walk with Me to Another Land is indispensable not just for interim pastors, but anybody leading in any kind of transition.

"Rich Zimmerman is a seasoned pastor who has reflected in depth on his experience of transitional ministry. He alternates stories of biblical characters in seasons and moments of transition with stories of interim ministers facing paradigmatic grief and conflicts. In the process he invites pastors to walk with their congregations toward healing and thriving."
--Gary Neal Hansen, Author of Kneeling with Giants: Learning to Pray with History's Best Teachers
