Description

Henry Drisler was an American scholar ardently opposed slavery. In 1861, Hopkins wrote his “The Bible View of Slavery” in which he criticized abolitionists and declared that there was no basis for ending slavery based on the Bible. In this work, Drisler refutes Hopkins, relying heavily on the Bible. “Therefore this saith the Lord, Ye have not hearkened unto me, in proclaiming liberty everyone to his brother, and every man to his neighbor: Behold, I proclaim a liberty for you, saith the Lord…”
