With the strength of the mighty oak tree, Drollinger's collection of essays in Oaks in Office will anchor Christian public servants in truth and righteousness, enabling them to stand resolute and unwavering through storms of political debate. With Scriptural Truth and God's precepts rooted in their hearts, they will be more fully able to create public policy and lead in the way that God has always intended for them.
Ralph Drollinger is the founder and president of Capitol Ministries. After starting a ministry to governing authorities in the California Capitol in 1996, Drollinger has established similar evangelism and discipleship ministries in more than 37 of America's state Capitols, and recently in Latin America. In 2009, he and his wife, Danielle, founded Capitol Ministries in Washington, D.C., where he teaches the Members Bible Study in our nation's Capitol and they minister to members of Congress on a weekly basis. CivicReach, a part of Capitol Ministries, focuses on local city and country leaders. Readers can subscribe to the same weekly Bible studies he teaches on the Hill at www.capmin.org.
The Drollingers are the Governmental Sphere Conveners of the U.S. Lausanne Committee on World Evangelization (more commonly known as Mission America), a consortium of many Evangelical ministries who, among numerous other initiatives, share the common objective of reaching all of America's Public Servants for Christ in the years ahead.
As laborers in glass houses, Public Servants are often intimidated into hiding their faith under a bushel. Sadly, this is dishonoring to our Lord, who has enlarged our borders for opportunities to influence. Sad, because it diminishes our ability to communicate the reason for the faith, hope, and love that is hopefully flowing from us to those who watch us. Ralph Drollinger's Oaks in Office: Biblical Essays for Political Leaders provides a road map whereby men and women come to understand the role and responsibility we have as believers in the public arena. His deep-dive studies, born of years of Biblical studies and interface with Public Servants at all levels, teach us how to become more effective missionaries, irrespective of partisanship or political views, in our own sphere of influence. I can unequivocally recommend Oaks in Office to those who want to know more about how a Christ follower can be true to their Lord while being effective in their public duties.
Oaks in Office is a wonderful gift from Ralph Drollinger, who has dedicated much of his life to Public Servants who wish to maintain and enhance their faith and character while navigating the often complex landscape of government life. It is a scholarly yet easily understood tome with great lessons for everyone.
I was a successful Eagle Scout because a Scoutmaster guided me through the Boy Scouts of America manual. I was a proficient Air Force pilot because an instructor taught me how to use a checklist. Ralph Drollinger is my life instructor, leading me and many other Public Servants through the most important checklist in history. Capitol Ministries' work delving into Biblical truths is creating mighty Oaks in Office around the world. I suppose Ralphs figurative cultivation, fertilization, and watering is making him the equivalent of a Biblical Johnny Appleseed!
The political noise in our nation's capital can often distract us from what's really important. Ralph Drollinger's Oaks in Office, and the Bible study Ralph and Danielle lead every week, help keep us focused on God and His direction.â·¨
Ralph Drollingers Oaks in Office is a wonderful collection of 52 leadership Bible studies on pertinent issues of the day from "The Remedy for Racism" to "Sexual Sin and the Aphrodisiac of Power." This book is not just for those in elected office; I recommend it for anyone in leadership who wants to leave a legacy for the next generation. From tiny acorns, great oak trees grow and the weekly lessons in this book will be the light, water, and soil you need. If you want to be an oak in your position, get this book and apply it regularly.
Elected Public Servants have been given a great responsibility and chargeto care for their fellow man. Whether a first-time member of the county livestock board or the United States House of Representatives, the tasks and challenges that arise can seem daunting. As Ralph Drollinger proclaims throughout Oaks in Office, grounding in the truth of God's Word and teachings builds a deep-rooted foundation that will stand up to the most challenging of days and events in office. Through the studies contained within Oaks in Office, Drollinger teaches that a deep understanding and relationship with God is an asset unlike any other. It provides counsel in times of need, joy and motivation in times of great distress. In an ever-increasingly convoluted world, Drollinger's framework grounds and guides development not only as a Christian, but also as a Public Servant.
