From the publisher's description: "This book examines two important American Protestant theologians: the archconservative Charles Hodge (1797-1878), and the archliberal Horace Bushnell (1802-1876), and their stances on racial slavery. Hodge, with his rigid doctrine of biblical inerrancy, and Bushnell, with his open-ended experiential theology, represent two poles of thought that continually assert themselves when American Protestants speak out on social issues. Even if many American Christians do not currently know these theologians' names, they feel their influence. This book provides a case study in the moral implications of each of these enduring polarities and upsets conventional understandings of the relationship of conservative and liberal Protestantism to slavery and race."
