Good presentation. An interesting presentation. I liked it because it is not one-sided, but presents lights and shadows also, the right things and the errors of Dabney.

Dabney's VA Defense Critique explained C Gregg Singer states so well in his book, A Theological Interpretation of American History that it has been customary and fashionable to claim the secession of the south was only to defend slavery as an economic institution and the rights of states as their main weapon for their defense of slavery, but to overlook the theological forces at work is to seriously misread the records... I know that Dabney knew this. So it is puzzling that in his Defense of Va and the South he doesn't deal with the unitarianism and atheism of the abolitionist movement, but defends southern slavery and the economic effects of abolition. For this reason I felt it necessary to examine his Defense. Very helpful as well is the teaching of John Otis on this subject SID=418051862 on Sermon Audio
