Download Full Text
This sermon on Exodus 21:2-6 is an example of how Crothers used the pulpit to convey his abolitionist beliefs. He discusses the system of servitude in the Old and New Testaments and asserts that “our churches need cleansing from the defilement of the sin of slave holding” (p. 19).
