John M. MulderJames Farmer's work on one of the antebellum south's most distinguished theologians, James Henley Thornwell, is a chapter of religion in the old South that needed to be written. Farmer skillfully dissects the genius of Thornwell's rationalism and piety and illumines the forging of the synthesis between religion and Southern culture that lies at the heart of the South's identity. This is a book to be read and pondered for insights into the enduring dilemma of race, religion, and politics in American life.
— John M. Mulder, president, Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary
