Publisher's Commentary: Although slavery is illegal in the United States today, it is far from being a dead issue. Abolition of slavery is still the living excuse for overthrowing the U.S. constitution during the War Between the States. Dabney addresses the slavery issue from every angle: historical, legal, economic, and, most importantly, scriptural. He shows from Scripture that those who oppose just slavery actively oppose the very words of Christ Himself. He predicts in the preface that "The few among them [the anti-slavery party] who do not pass me by with silent neglect, I am well aware will content themselves with scolding; they will not venture a rational reply." To this day, we know of no attempt at a rational reply to this little book.
