Item description for Black & Tan: A Collection of Essays and Excursions on Slavery, Culture War, and Scripture in America by Douglas Wilson...

Overview
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.

Publishers Description
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. "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 nine books including Roll Jordan Roll: The World the Slaves Made, winner of the Bancroft Prize in American History, teaching positions at Rutgers, University of Rochester, Yale, Cambridge, and formerly a distinguished scholar in residence for the University Center, Georgia.

Reviews - What do customers think about Black & Tan: A Collection of Essays and Excursions on Slavery, Culture War, and Scripture in America?

Black and Tan, a new view of the causes of the Civil War  May 15, 2006
Douglas Wilson writes as a well informed Christian rather than as an academic. As a result, his book is very readable. Three lessons may be learned from this excellent book:
That both the North and the South acted under grave misconceptions about the problem of slavery, and that both mistakenly looked for a political rather than a Christian solution;
That the major sins of the North were their assignment of slaves to an inferior species and their readiness to judge their brothers in the South; And,
That the sins of the South were connected with what they did and did not do for their slaves, rather than the institution of slavery itself.
Wilson's gripping book shows how these catastrophic errors were magnified into regional hatreds,resulting in the political solution that led to the slaughter of so many American men and boys. He makes the reader suspicious of quick political solutions of these kinds of problems, such as our current Mexican immigration issue and hopeful that this will not turn into a similar catastrophe.
