Masters and Slaves in the House of the Lord

Several folks have inquired about the work I published regarding life for slave members of ante-bellum Mississippi and Louisiana Baptist churches.

To read a chapter published in Masters & Slaves in the House of the Lord: Race and Religion in the American South, 1740-1870, John B. Boles, editor, click here.

Larry,

I appreciate your work so very much. And after having preached in MS several years (Grenada) I was very interested in the historical perspective you give. Thank you.

I posted on my blog today a piece that I wrote while I lived in MS. Not quite as good as yours.

Blessings,
