Do you see the need for discipleship amongst our elected leaders? This tome includes 52 biblical essays on crucial policy issues as viewed through the lens of God’s Word.
The mighty oak tree spends the majority of its strength fortifying its infrastructure so that its roots will sustain the long sweeping branches that it will push up to twenty-five feet outward and parallel to the ground. It drives its roots deep into the earth, anchoring it firmly so it may stand steadfast in powerful storms that topple other weaker trees around it. Only a small bit of its energy is spent on external growth, expanding its trunk and stretching its boughs toward the sky.
It is our prayer to mature the Christian Public Servant in this way, with the development of the inner person. A steady diet of sound Biblical doctrine will grow Public Servants in their faith. Regular Bible study will help them develop critical discernment that will guide and sustain them in battles over controversial and trendy issues. Anchored in truth and righteousness, they will stand resolute and unwavering amid the storms of political debate. Scriptural Truth and God’s precepts that have rooted in their hearts will lead them as they create public policy. This is our prayer and the reason for this book.
