Welcome to Roger’s Take on Religion: An Inclusive Perspective
Like any good religious literature, Go Set A Watchman is a call for self-examination.
The title of Harper Lee’s “re-discovered book” is from Isaiah 21:6 : “For thus hath the Lord said unto me, ‘Go, set a watchman, let him declare what he seeth.’”
Who is the watchman and what does he see?
It’s not Scout’s father, Atticus’ (from To Kill A Mockingbird), but her Uncle Jack who answers the question: “Every man’s island, Jean Louise, every man’s watchman, is his conscience.”
Here’s My Take: The truly religious writer, like Harper Lee, is not one who provides answers but one who raises questions and then calls us to examine our own conscience.
