Apr 25, Jacob Aitken rated it it was amazing. Very good stuff. His common-sense realism, while laughed at by van tillians in the 20th century, is making a comeback today. Has a notorious section on the Lord's Supper. Dabney is very attentive elsewhere to tensions in how we talk about the doctrine of God.
Feb 20, Daniel rated it it was amazing Shelves: theology. Notwithstanding my prejudices against Robert Lewis Dabney, largely on account of his views of race and American slavery, I really enjoyed reading his Systematic Theology. Given that it was originally a series of lectures, it is remarkably lucid in its style. There are a few areas where I would disagree with Dabney, especially in relation to his weakening of the Reformed view of the Lord's Supper, his rejection of the establishment principle, and even some statements he makes on the atonement de Notwithstanding my prejudices against Robert Lewis Dabney, largely on account of his views of race and American slavery, I really enjoyed reading his Systematic Theology.
There are a few areas where I would disagree with Dabney, especially in relation to his weakening of the Reformed view of the Lord's Supper, his rejection of the establishment principle, and even some statements he makes on the atonement despite clearly affirming limited atonement, he says some things that might lend weight to hypothetical universalism , his work is largely a restatement of standard Reformed doctrine.
For readers of Reformed systematic theologies, Dabney's work is one that ought to be on your reading list. Jun 10, Steven Wedgeworth rated it really liked it.
Mostly really good. There are a few places where Dabney majors on minors or vice versa , but on the whole he is balanced and thorough. He also has a commanding knowledge of the Reformed tradition, even the 16th cent. Oct 16, G Walker rated it liked it Shelves: paying-my-dues , dogmatics. Dabney, despite is views on Red-heads and "blacks", is a man to be admired.
This is a classic Southern Presbyterian understanding of theology. While he has written a lot of other worth while material and if you have the time to genuinely read them, space on your bookshelf and discretionary funds, I would encourage that you read them if for no other reason than to get a good snapshot of what it walking with God looked like - at least in America during the war between the states.
Also, I think a l Dabney, despite is views on Red-heads and "blacks", is a man to be admired. Also, I think a lot of what he has to say about education, slavery, the American government has a lot of good import for today's America. Jun 23, Tom rated it it was amazing Shelves: theology , reformed , philosophy.
An very thorough treatment of systematic theology from one of the greatest theologians of the 19th century. Not written as a book, but rather a collection of lecture notes.
Dabney does a masterful job not just presenting the biblical view of various doctrine, but he also refutes various false teachings.
Apr 22, Benjamin Glaser rated it really liked it Shelves: southern-presbyterians , theology. One of the things I like about Dabney's Systematics is that it was originally lecture notes from the classes he taught. While some think this is a defect I actually think this benefits learning in a lot of ways since it allows Dabney to focus on the Pastoral reasons why these things are important. View 2 comments.

Dabney was the most conspicuous figure and the leading theological guide of the Southern Presbyterian Church, the most prolific theological writer that Church has as yet produced, and for a period of over forty years one of the most distinguished and probably the most impressive teacher of its candidates for the ministry. As a preacher, as a teacher and as a writer equally he achieved greatness, and in the counsels of the State and of the Church alike he was a factor of importance. In the wider theological history of the country and of the epoch he finds a worthy place as one of the younger members of a remarkable company of theologians to whose lot it fell to reassert and reorganize the historical faith of the Reformed Churches in the face of the theological ferment which marked the earlier years of the Nineteenth Century.
He was also chief of staff and biographer to Stonewall Jackson. His biography of Jackson remains in print today. They were both Calvinist , Old School Presbyterians , and social conservatives. Some conservative Presbyterians, particularly within the Presbyterian Church in America and the Orthodox Presbyterian Church , still value their theological writings, although both these churches have repudiated Dabney's and Thornwell's beliefs on race and support of antebellum slavery. His criticisms of public education became highly influential within the American conservative movement, as well as among theonomists such as Rousas John Rushdoony , who largely sympathized with the Confederacy.
