From the back cover: Is national religion tyrannical? Or could national religion be beneficial or even necessary?
Answering those and other questions, Wagner lays out the long-understood but often-disregarded principle of national religion as the Biblical, logical, and historical option for Presbyterians. In so doing, Wagner addresses the futility of those arguing for the moral neutrality of government and other Christians labouring for trivial improvements in existing policy. In a concise manner, Wagner unveils the divine purpose of the civil government as clearly derived from Scripture.
"Wagner turns to Scripture and the Scottish understanding of the relationship of church and state. ...A civil government that establishes the Presbyterian Church will therefore be nothing more or less than a civil government that rules a nation in accordance with Scripture." - The Blue Banner
"[Wagner] shows how disestablishment of religion is an impossibility (not whether, but which). He clearly makes the point that a refusal to establish Christianity is not a neutral action--it is the establishment of false religion." - Credenda/Agenda
