Publisher Description

"Pictures of Slavery in Church and State" written by a minister of the Methodist Episcopal Church and a leading U.S. abolitionist at the time, John Dixon Long (1817 – 1894), is considered to be one of the most influential readings in abolitionist circles. Dixon debated in his book the issue of slavery, breaking the silence on what was openly discussed as hypocrisy and cowardice of the Methodist religious hierarchy, given their founders' adamant prescriptions against slavery in the early doctrines of the Methodist Episcopal Church.
