From the Back Cover

God loves you and has a unique blueprint for your life–but it’s up to you to find it and live it out. Mingling contemporary stories and biblical anecdotes with practical advice, Silvoso shows how God intervenes in human affairs today to transform people and nations. In these pages, you’ll hear extraordinary stories about the power of God working through those who discovered their specific purpose. Read about the amazing things that happened in Hawaii when a secular society turned over its businesses and schools to God. Learn how a community’s endemic crime and school problems in Minnesota underwent dramatic transformation after being dedicated to God. Find out how an out-of-control prison system in Buenos Aires totally reversed its course by the efforts of people who listened to God. Learn Silvoso’s five critical paradigms for implementing change: discipling nations, reclaiming the marketplace, seeing work as worship, using the power of God to overcome evil in everyday situations and eliminating systemic poverty. Then be challenged to transform yourself–and by doing so, transform your family, school, business and nation. Just think! You can make a difference in the world. It’s time to look at yourself the way God does, as loved and designed with a unique purpose. You can aim high, knowing that He has entrusted you with great things. “God sees you as a nation transformer,” says Silvoso. God has faith in you!

The author states that the nation of Guatemala was not discipled but rather there was a focus on discipling individuals.

This is a great extension to Anointed for Business, which I have been implementing on a daily basis since reading it 5 years ago. The lessons learned from others experience is encouraging and empowering. Ed's fluid way of writing and style for making it simple to follow the steps to success is truly a blessing. I look forward to implementing these additional tools in my daily walk so that I am able to fulfill God's plan for my life and be a useful tool in His hand.

I have found this book extremely helpful and enlightening. The balance between Scripture and actual applications by people from all over the globe is inspiring to me. Ed Silvoso is a very clear writer who makes you feel at home with this material. At this point, I intend to read it again very soon.

The Marketplace is where business men and women are equipped to integrate faith and work. And this book is our business plan for making Jesus' dream for our city to come true.

Great Book! Ed Silvoso is without doubt a "Guru" on the subject of national transformation using Kingdom of God principles. I could not put the book down. The transformation principles outlined in this book are simple and practical and can be adopted in a village in Africa as well as a large city in the developed world. The end-time church, just like the first century Apostles has been given the mandate to transform nations and this book is proof that God has released Apostles like Dr. Ed Silvoso in the marketplace to spearhead this movement.I especially appreciate the manner in which Silvoso analyses the existing Babylonian system that has led to systemic poverty due to corruption, its inevitable demise and the rise and expansion of the Kingdom of God in the nations using five simple paradigms. In addition Silvoso has given examples of nations that are applying these principles and their success stories. I recommend this book to any Christian Leader who truly desires to be used by God to transform his community and nation. Well Done Dr. Ed Silvoso!

I want to start by saying what I like. I agree with the premise that we are to be about making disciples and that we need to be about transforming the market place. I agree that there is no mandate found in the Bible to go out and saturate the country side with churches, but rather that we are to make disciples of all nations.

The book is hard to read. Why? Because the author twists the Bible to back his thesis. The first 6 chapters are filled with examples of corrupt political leaders who after being "discipled" have been taken out of office for their corruption, a "Christian Bank" that was closed. Quoting from the Twin Cities Daily Planet, Riverview Community Bank failed Friday, becoming the fifth Minnesota bank and the 106th U.S. bank to be closed this year. MPR reports that the bank's owner had claimed divine backing: When Riverview opened in March 2003, co-founder Chuck Ripka told the Pioneer Press that God told him to get the bank going. "He said, `Chuck, if you do all the things I told you to do, I promise you I will take care of the bottom line,"` Ripka said in 2004.

I agree that we are to make disciples. I believe that we are to make disciples of all nations. I believe that the word nations should be correctly understood as ethnic groups and not geopolitical entities. I fail to see where the Bible points us to disciple entire nations.

Discipleship doesn't happen because someone says a prayer or is "anointed" discipleship happens slowly over time one person at a time.

The author uses Guatemala as an example. I lived in Guatemala for nearly 6 years. The author states that the nation of Guatemala was not discipled but rather there was a focus on discipling individuals.
