Essays and Excursions on Slavery, Culture War, and Scripture in America


If we want to understand culture wars on the contemporary American scene, we must first come to grips with the American culture wars of the nineteenth century. That our nation did not remove slavery in a biblical way helps explain many of our contemporary social evils. But who is qualified to talk about such things? What is a biblical view of racism? Why do the biblical answers to such questions so infuriate the radical left and the radical right? This collection of essays lays out some of the answers from a view unashamed of historic biblical absolutism.

Christians acted ashamed of the Bible's stance toward slavery, and condemned slavery using a law apart from the Bible. This opened the door for the government to solve the problem of slavery using force rather than through peaceful Christian means. This too had dramatic consequences, as it prepared the ground for the government again t... More details

"A Southerner's delight"

Comments: So much of our contemporary education system promulgates trite, over-simplified, and negative images of the Antebellum South and the worldview that undergirded it.
