It's both encouraging and heartbreaking. Encouraging that the truth is still being told on this contentious issue. It's heartbreaking to think of all the love that existed between master and slave that was lost to the heartless industrial north due to Lincoln's war for money.

8 of 13 people found the following review helpful By William P. Vallante on August 13, 2010
Format: Paperback
A wonderful and very readable book which I roared through in less than a week. The book, which is well sourced, deals not only with the Christian view of the institution of slavery, but with slavery as it actually was. Yes, it will ruffle some feathers. But if you are a Southerner who is tired of feeling compelled to apologize because your ancestors had slaves, or, if you are simply someone who is wondering in the back of his mind if all of this apologizing for an institution which is long dead in this country is somehow less related to love for your fellow man and more to the rantings of racial demagogues and liberal nutcases, then you too need to get this book.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is one of the most informative, eye opening books I have ever read. It should be required reading for EVERYONE. Without a doubt slavery was and is ordained by God. As the book says-nowhere in the Bible is slavery ever condemned. The "sin" of slavery is when the slave fails to do what he is ordered to do by is master, or when the master mistreats the slave. Slavery will come back on a large scale in the latter days of planet earth-the Bible says so. I doubt it will be the easy, benevolent, protective kind that was known in the American South prior to the War for Southern Independance. More than likely it will be the kind practised in much of Africa and the Muslim countries of today.
