Landa Cope had a crisis of faith. Her realization that a large Christian population didn’t benefit a community – and that Christians didn’t seem to care – provoked deep sadness, burning questions, and a passion to uncover how the gospel can truly bless society. The answers to her questions bring new hope. An Introduction to the Old Testament Template is a practical and thought-provoking guide to applying God’s whole biblical revelation to every area of culture. Readers of all professions and backgrounds will rethink long-held beliefs and learn how to bring a righteous influence back into the culture in which they live.

Bibliography and Resources


Heads of state, corporation CEOs, church leaders, and leaders of all spheres of society have been impacted and encouraged by Landa Cope’s presentation of God’s template for transforming nations . . . I’m happy that Landa, a friend of more than three decades, has put this powerful truth into writing. Read and be challenged – and changed.
Loren Cunningham, founder, Youth With a Mission

Landa’s is a fresh, fearless, and important voice. She provides not only a wakeup call for the church but also a path to move forward. She traces how God took the Hebrew people out of Egypt and built a nation of free people, who became a model nation for the world. If you have a heart for the well-being of your nation, for the global Christian mission, and for the integrity of the church in the twenty-first century, this book is a must read.
