What is “40 Days Towards a More Godly Nation?”
It’s an all church series much like the well known 40 Days of Purpose series. This series allows pastors to walk their congregation through the critical issues facing America and teach them the Biblical View of Government. It was produced in partnership with the American Family Association (AFA). It is designed to be non-partisan and pastors won’t get in trouble with the congregation or the IRS.
We encourage you to work with your pastor to do have him do this series at your church (all resources can be ordered here or on the AFA.net site).
You may also wish to consider starting your own Bible study group using this material in your home. It can also be used to teach Adult and College Sunday Schools.
What resources are available?
Current offerings include the Book (which includes the Study Guide), a small group DVD that includes 6 20 minute video sessions, and a Sermon CD. The Sermon CD contains Sermon notes and PowerPoint presentations for Pastors. Stay tuned for other materials like posters and flyers. (Click on the above highlighted links for an excerpt of the book and a video clip of the DVD.)
How is this different from the “Jesus Is Involved in Politics!” Book?
The content is essentially the same, but all partisan references have been removed to allow Pastors to teach on the material without controversy. The material is broken up in to 40 days of readings, each of about 5 pages. At the back of the book is a Study Guide with 6 weeks of questions that relate to the readings for that week. It’s designed as a 40 Days Series for churches or as a small group study.
A reader writes: As a church, we are [doing the series] and it is quite eye-opening. I have to say I was one of those American Christians with my head in the sand, not doing much about what's happening in America. Reading your book has helped me understand the issues much more clearly and has helped me not be so overwhelmed by it all. I feel like I have more information to help me make more informed decisions...
