‘Send Back the Money!

The Free Church of Scotland and American Slavery

by Iain Whyte

ISBN: 9780227173893

“This book not only explains the context and the evolution of public opinion with regards to slavery in both countries, but the author situates as well many other events related with the Free Church, the American Presbyterianism, and religions in general, following the methods of comparative studies, in the tradition of Atlantic Studies. ‘Send Back the Money!’: The Free Church of Scotland and American Slavery is neither a mere history book, nor entirely focused on theology; it is rather an interdisciplinary account about how political, ethnical, religious ideas were confronted with the issue of slavery during an epoch when it was considered as ‘normal’ and even ‘necessary’.”

Yves Laberge, Université Laval, in Theological Book Review (tbr),
