New Book Review: The Civil War as a Theological Crisis

Check out my book review of this revelatory tale of the theological crisis surrounding the American Civil War and the American church. It covers the beneficial ramifications of rigorous biblical hermeneutics concerning the damnable institution of slavery in the American South and how challenges to abolish slavery were rebutted by Southern American theologians and ministers. What began as an appeal to conscience turned out to be a theologically rich argument against slavery in the abstract and later slavery in practice in the American Deep South by theologians and abolitionists worldwide. Written by historian Mark A. Noll.

Enjoy!
