Abstract

David Walker, a former slave, wrote a book in 1829 in which he made a fervent appeal for slaves to use violence in gaining freedom from their masters. Does this strategy have a place in today’s world in which corruption and other evil practices still prevail? Which scriptures or theological arguments could dissuade Christians today, regardless of race, from using civil violence to respond to oppression and injustice?
