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.

Greenman has written a good study exploring the leaders in the Old Testament and the founding of the United States. Her research is very thorough. I had no idea of the influence the work of Baron Charles Secondat de Montesquieu had on the work of the Founding Fathers, for example. And I was quite surprised to find that a third of the source material for the writings of the Founding Fathers was from the Bible. (Loc 1402/2592)
This is a good study for those who want to learn from leaders in the Old Testament. You'll gain a good overview of Old Testament history and how the circumstances of the Israelites changed depending on their obedience to God. There are good lessons included for believers today about a nation's welfare and obedience to God. You'll find out that God's principles for nations and leaders are still valid.
Doing this study will take time and effort but it will be well worth it. It will help you become an individual active in calling upon God to bless the United States.
My rating:4/5 stars.

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?”
