Baptists in the South, rapidly rising to challenge Methodists numerically helped align Southern religion with the South's black slave culture. The birth of the Southern Baptist Convention in 1945, formed in order to preserve God's will for the African race, signaled the inevitability of war. This book explores the myriad of ways in which Baptists in Middle Georgia helped shape history before, during, and after the Civil War.

Domestic Slavery originated in the nineteenth century as a literary debate. The chapters were originally the letters of Southern pastor Richard Fuller and Northern educator Francis Wayland, with each defending their respective positions. Historians of Southern religion consider Domestic Slavery to be one of the major contributions to the nineteenth-century debate over the peculiar institution. This critical edition of Domestic Slavery, which includes annotations and an appendix of related documents, represents the first reprint of this important work to be published since the mid-nineteenth century.
