The numerous legal, moral, and social threats on the horizon in America have caused many Christians to wonder whether they can truly make a difference. Contrary to some current voices that have called for retreat, Janet and Craig Parshall explain why Christians must engage the culture as never before in order to fulfill the whole mission of the church. In "The Light in the City," the Parshalls help readers understand the biblical basis for the need for Christians to be actively involved in the formation of public policy. Issues addressed in this book are as current as tabloid headlines. "The Light in the City" not only gives a biblical and historical basis for Christian involvement, but it also provides practical strategies and personal testimonies of encouragement.
