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.

Douglas Wilson is pastor of Christ Church (Moscow, Idaho) and editor of Credenda/Agenda magazine. He is a contributor to Back to Basics: Rediscovering the Richness of the Reformed Faith (P&R) and author of Recovering the Lost Tools of Learning (Crossway), Reforming Marriage (Canon), and Future Men (Canon).Review:
The Reverend Douglas Wilson may not be a professional historian, as his detractors say, but he has a strong grasp of the essentials of the history of slavery and its relation to Christian doctrine. Indeed, sad to say, his grasp is a great deal stronger than that of most professors of American history, whose distortions and trivializations disgrace our college classrooms. And the Reverend Mr. Wilson is a fighter, especially effective in defense of Christianity against those who try to turn Jesus' way of salvation into pseudo-moralistic drivel. --Eugene Genovese, Ph.D. Columbia University, author of Roll Jordan Roll: The World the Slaves Made
