It has been said that a people who forget their history are a people without a foundation and without a future. Although the history of Presbyterianism in the South compromises a rich theological and ecclesiastical heritage, it is virtually unknown today.

Morton H. Smith reminds us of the doctrinal roots of Southern Presbyterianism. Surveying the thought of James H. Thornwell, Robert L. Dabney, and numerous other key preachers and teachers, Smith highlights their views of biblical inspiration and divine election, as well as the doctrinal and constitutional distinctives of the Southern Presbyterian church. By learning from the church's past, Presbyterians of today can become better grounded for faithful living in the present and future.
