This is a sober and sobering study which sets in context a number of important but little-known sources that will give pause for thought in any reflection on the liberative potential and the social impact of the Bible. H. S. Pyper, Journal for the Study of the Old Testament Elegantly written, deeply learned, and forcefully argued, this is an important book that deserves a wide readership. The Journal of American History ... brilliant study ... provides fascinating insights into the religious mind of the slaveholding South. The Journal of American History Haynes's study provides a thorough and rich sense of the interpretive history of this scriptural story. Christian Century ... a wide-ranging interdisciplinary study. Christian Century A brief review cannot begin to do justice to the fascination of this masterly and chilling study or to its contemporary relevance. Church Times Outstanding ... determination to show not simply how issues and events look in retrospect, but how they appeared to people at the time. Howard Temperley, Times Literary Supplement
