PUBLICATIONS

  • Slavery and Sin: The Fight against Slavery and the Rise of Liberal Protestantism (Oxford University Press, 2011)

    Slavery and Sin: The Fight against Slavery and the Rise of Liberal Protestantism (Oxford University Press, 2011)

    "Oshatz carries her study through the Civil War to reveal how emancipation confirmed for northern Protestants the notion that God revealed His will through history. She reveals how, after the war, a new generation of liberal theologians drew on this experience to respond to evolution and historical biblical criticism. Slavery and Sin provides critical insight into how the theological innovations rooted in the slavery debates came to fruition in liberal Protestantism's acceptance of the historical and evolutionary nature of religious truth."
