Black & Tan: Essays and Excursions on Slavery, Culture War, and Scripture in America
Author(s): Douglas Wilson
Publisher: Canon Press
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 nineteenth 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.
