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.

I've really enjoyed the devotionals from our author, and I think she really hits the nail on the head for various topics and practical application for individual or group study. This devotional looked at different leaders in the Bible like Isaac, Jacob, David, and more and shows us how the Lord led them, and then how they led because of their devotion to Christ. The author shows us America's roots with a lot of founding fathers and America's history and how their Christian principles founded the nation. The author calls us to look back to the Bible and our heritage to return to following the Lord and praying for our nation to make an impact here today. I totally agree with the author that we should pray for our nation, be active in politics, and attempt to make a difference where we are to influence our community for Christ. I agree with most all the author's theology as well. My only caveat would be that because of the topic, some may feel put off especially with politics being as divisive as it is today. Overall, I feel the author put out another practical well thought out devotional, it may just not be for everyone because of the topic focus.
I received a complimentary copy of this book, and all opinions given are entirely my own.

More from MartaWhat 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?”
