Douglas Wilson Ä 7 SUMMARY DOWNLOAD × eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Ä Douglas Wilson SUMMARY Black Tan A Collection of Essays and Excursions on Slavery Culture War and Scripture in America 107 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 ualified to talk about such things What is a biblical view of racism Why do the biblical answers to such uestions so infuriate the radical left and the radical right This collection of essays I read this because of all the recent hubbub about it and I was pretty appalled at what I found here I ve always approached Douglas Wilson with my guard up because of some of his odd views Federal Vision Theonomy uasi KJV only etc but I ve enjoyed some of his work and so I tried to come to this with something of an open mind But honestly I was pretty flabbergasted at this book Lincoln was a white supremacist and slavery in the South really wasn t all that bad According to this book the answer is a resounding Yep It should come as no big surprise that Wilson leans pretty heavily on just a handful of authors and books in order to make his case Of course he would simply respond to that by arguing that most history books and historians are merely repeating abolitionist propaganda a phrase he uses several times throughout the book The odd arguments in this book and the accusations of propaganda lobbed at Wilson s critics and historians in general gave me a ueasiness that I imagine could only be duplicated by reading a book that denied the HolocaustOne thing that Wilson definitely gets right here is that ideas have destinations 71 Theology is important folks let this book be an testament to that Mix yourself a cocktail of Theonomy and Postmillennialism and you may wake up to find yourself saying something like most slaves in the South were actually pretty content with their circumstances

Douglas Wilson Ä 7 SUMMARY DOWNLOAD × eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Ä Douglas Wilson SUMMARY Black Tan A Collection of Essays and Excursions on Slavery Culture War and Scripture in America 107 R 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 PhD 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 If I can attempt to boil down the basic thrust of this book to its two main points Wilson is trying to argue the following The Civil War was bad because it led to the 14th amendment which led to Roe v Wade which is worse than southern slavery The Civil War was bad because southern slavery wasn t bad enough to justify a war and slavery would have just gone away peacefully if given enough timeThis book doesn t spend much time defending its claim that southern slavery wasn t as bad as abolitionists said it was apart to point out that there were some good southerners out there and apparently some prominent southern Christians advocated for moral types of slavery To be fair to Wilson he does make clear several times that he believes that slavery is wrong and that a virtuous society would eventually discard it I wasn t fully convinced though that he grasped the full totality of how wrong it is to own another man as evidenced by his constant refrain of compromise and gradual transformation a refrain which MLK Jr rightly refuted in his letter from Birmingham jail Add to that the lack of evidence for Wilson s claims and while he may not go full Lost Cause in this book he gets pretty closeWith regards to the book s main thrust I found its reasoning similarly paltry and lacking Wilson s attempts to draw a direct line between the Civil War and Roe v Wade begs the post hoc ergo propter hoc logical fallacy and is as sloppy as claiming that because Luther was an anti Semite at the end of his life the Reformation is to be blamed for the Holocaust In addition to this Wilson s attempt to claim the Southerners were just fighting for the biblical meaning of constitutional government is nothing less than historical revisionism If you read the Southern secession documents they make it clear why the South seceded spoiler it was over the right to own human beings just because of their skin color States rights were just a handy defense for that position True the north doesn t fight to end slavery until 1863 after Lincoln has a heart change and alters his goals with the war But while I understand the arguments made having heard them since high school for this position I still label it historical revisionismRegarding Wilson s latter argument that slavery could be abolished via reformation as opposed to revolution this to me strikes me as nothing less than historical wish fulfillment The fact that the South was all willing to secede over the issue of slavery makes it clear what their attitude was going to be to reformation Perhaps Wilson wants to believe that given a hundred years the South would eventually willingly abolish slavery but he ignores the pain suffering and horror that accompanies generations of men and women being held captive in the dehumanization of chattel slavery For being a Calvinist Wilson really doesn t understand the nature of total depravityIn addition to Wilson s core thesis not holding up due to a combination of historical revisionism and wish fulfillment there s a good bit of racial insensitivity going on in this book which Thabiti Anyabwile detailed far better than I could in his blog post series on this book For anyone interested in reading through a rigorous and detailed back and forth conversation about this book I d highly recommend Thabiti Wilson s back and forth blog series which you can find here Thabiti clearly wins the exchange in my book but readers can draw their own conclusionsAs a whole I don t find much in
