Review, Guest Post, and Giveaway: Leaders, Nations, & God by Marta Greenman


About the Book:


Book: Leaders, Nations, & God
Author: Marta E. Greenman
Genre: Non-Fiction, Christian Bible Study
Release Date: September 19, 2013

LEADERS, NATIONS, AND GOD invites readers to a six-week journey to explore the Bible’s message for the nations of the world, their leaders, and for Christians who live as citizens of those nations. By focusing on the biblical history of Israel and the United States, the reader discovers the nature of true, faithful leadership and the consequences when a leader compromises, as well as the sorts of nations that God may bless. Marta E. Greenman helps readers understand how scriptural principles apply to nations and to individuals alike.

By asking and answering these questions, the paths of humble obedience for individuals and nations become clear.

Each day’s study begins by encouraging the reader to write their prayer before they begin to examine the biblical history of Israel and/or the United States. The reader gathers insights from scripture to bring understanding of God’s ideal for nations and leaders. Questions dig deeply into lessons from the Bible, history, and the influences on one’s own life. Each day’s study comes with highlighted “Questions to Ponder” and ends with prayer.

If you find yourself drawn to explore God’s will for nations and individuals, if you wonder what biblical obedience might look like in your daily life, then Leaders, Nations, and God will meet your need for a study grounded in the Bible and focused on God’s desires for His people.

My Thoughts:

I love history, always was my favorite subject in school and I enjoy teaching my children the history of our great nation, and being reminded of what she stood for and still stands for. In this 6-week workbook course we are taken through Biblical history and how it ties into our own nation's history. Are they connected? What was our founding fathers goals for this nation?

History is important and should not be forgotten. This is a workbook that could be used for school, especially home-schooling, or a Sunday School study.  It would also be a great book to do as a family devotional to delve deeper into history of our country while studying the Bible. I really liked the thought provoking questions and I think that they would make great discussions when doing this book with others.

This was a very informative workbook/study that I plan to share with my family.

I was provided a copy of this novel from the publisher. I was not required to post a positive review and all views and opinions are my own.

More from Marta

What a profound statement made by George Santayana, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” As Christians we need to learn those who have gone before us. In Leaders, Nations, and God we look at the history of the Children of Israel and America’s Founding Fathers to become men and women who understand the time and know how to navigate the troubled waters of today. We look at questions like “Who does God consider to be a leader?” What kind of nation does the Lord bless?” “Did America’s Founding Fathers really set up our country on Judeo-Christian values?”
