Publisher's Summary

Even though America is fiercely divided between the left and the right and protests are becoming increasingly violent, both sides of the political aisle remain committed to secularism and increasingly to looser standards of sexual propriety.

If we want to understand contemporary American culture wars, we must first come to grips with the culture wars of the 19th century. In this book, Douglas Wilson explains how our nation's failure to remove slavery in a biblical fashion has led us to many of the quagmires we find ourselves in and until we grapple with issues like racism, hate speech, and the biblical position on slavery, we will continue to repeat the same mistakes our ancestors did.

This collection of essays lays out the answers from a view unafraid of historic, biblical orthodoxy, as well as addressing some of the controversies surrounding the previous edition of the book.

insightful from a counter-cultural perspective

Very interesting read, thanks to the author for Godly insight into a perspective that woefully few people even consider. Several repetitions on sentences or paragraphs, but good narration.

I highly respect Doug Wilson!

I truly enjoyed this book. Nevertheless, there is still so much more to discuss. Doug Wilson is by far one of my favorite pastors. He is very thoughtful and careful about information that is communicated. There were parts of the book that shed light on slavery in Haiti versus the US that I think unintentionally diminished the role the United States played in it's participation of the mistreatment of African human beings. While it is clear that Doug Wilson strongly opposes Southern slavery and their unbiblical actions towards Africans. The comparison left me thinking, "At least we weren't as bad as the other guys!" I do not believe that it was Doug's intention to leave me feeling that way, but given the overall context to which the comparison was made, I had no other choice. All in all, excellent book! I could see Doug's sense of humor throughout the book, but I also saw the passion for God's people to be far more biblical and less emotional about life.
