Seven-session seminar plus the book, Building Godly Nations: Lessons from the Bible and America’s Christian History. While much of the material in this course is presented in other courses we offer, this provides an excellent overview on what is necessary to build Godly nations.

The Bible teaches that if a people obey God’s laws they will have liberty, peace, prosperity, and justice. To the extent we obey in all areas of life, is the extent we will experience the Godly fruit of liberty. The Founders of America understood this vital truth and attempted to build the nation upon the precepts of God, and though not without fault, their efforts produced the best example of a Christian nation in history. Thus there are many important lessons we can learn from the American Founders as we seek to build Godly nations today.
This book examines the mandate for building Godly nations and how to apply Biblical principles to governing the nations.
Chapters include: God’s Sovereignty Over the Nations, The Bible: Rock of Our Republic, Pastors and American Independence, Separation of Church and State, The Role of Women in History, The Bible, Slavery, and America’s Founders, Qualifications for Godly Officials, Biblical Principles of Business, Education and the Kingdom of God, and more.
