Scriptural and statistical views in favor of slavery by Thornton Stringfellow( Book )

23 editions published between 1856 and 2012 in English and held by 402 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written in two parts, the first essay contains four major points: slavery received the sanction of God in the time of the Patriarchs, slavery was part of the only commonwealth established by God, slavery is recognized by Christ as legitimate, and slavery is full of mercy. The second part uses the census of 1850 to make material claims for the expediency of slavery. He compares the six New England states with the five Atlantic coast slave states and uses the statistical data to assert that the Southern states are superior in religious life, and in general prosperity and population growth for whites, slaves, and free blacks. He claims that slavery was forced upon the South by the Northern states, but because the South has thrived, it has turned out to be not a curse but a blessing

Stringfellow's essay from the Religious Herald sets out to prove that slavery was sanctioned by God in the time of the Patriarchs, was part of the only commonwealth established by God, was recognized by Jesus Christ, and is an institution full of mercy. He draws especially on the book of Abraham, Jewish Law and the Pauline epistles. In two additional shorter essays he refutes the challenge of a pro-abolitionist, and uses the Israelite conquest of Canaan to prove that slavery is legitimized under the Mosaic Law

Scriptural and statistical views in favor of slavery by Thornton Stringfellow( )

1 edition published in 1856 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Stringfellow's Scriptural and Statistical Views in Favor of Slavery is written in two parts. The first part, "Scriptural Views," is a reprint of the tract A Brief Examination of Scripture Testimony on the Institution of Slavery. His four major points in this essay are as follows: 1) Slavery received the sanction of God in the time of the Patriarchs; 2) Slavery is incorporated as a part of the only commonwealth expressly established by God; 3) Slavery is recognized by Jesus Christ as legitimate; and 4) Slavery is full of mercy. In support of these contentions, Stringfellow calls attention especially to Abraham, Jewish Law, and the Pauline epistles in the New Testament. Added to this essay are two shorter essays. The first responds to an attempt by a pro-abolition individual to convince him that scripture condemns slavery. Stringfellow refutes every scripture employed by the abolitionist. The second essay uses the Israelite conquest of Canaan to prove that slavery is legitimated by Mosaic Law. The second part of this book contains the "Statistical views." This essay uses the census of 1850 to make material claims for the expediency of slavery. Most of his material compares the six New England states with the five old slave states on the Atlantic coast. Using census data, Stringfellow asserts that the Southern states are superior in religious life and material life for whites, slaves, and free blacks. The urban life of the Northern states suffers in comparison with the agricultural South both in terms of general prosperity and population growth. Stringfellow's conclusion is that despite the fact that the Northern states forced the burden of slavery onto their Southern neighbors, the Southern states have thrived socially and religiously. Stringfellow takes this as evidence that slavery is not a curse, but a blessing
