Watchmen on the Walls is written for the purpose of: 1. Showing Christians they have God-given duties that extend to the civil realm. 2. Teaching biblical principles of public life. 3. Communicating to pastors their responsibility to equip Christians in their civil duties. 4. Giving pastors suggestions of how to prepare their church members to be salt in the public arena. This book is especially addressed to pastors for, as teachers and leaders in the church, they play a vital role in reforming our nation. The church shapes the character and thinking of the people who in turn shape the character and direction of the nation. As De Tocqueville observed 150 years ago, the source of America's greatness and liberty lies in the churches of America-not just any churches, though, but those whose pulpits are aflame with righteousness and whose message encompasses all of life. Since most Americans today consider the church irrelevant in addressing everyday social and political concerns, there must be many ministers and churches who are not teaching all the duties of the Christian. This book is written to help correct this neglect.
