Dabney review: Mid-America Journal of Theology

There was a very generous review of my Robert Lewis Dabney in the Mid-America Journal of Theology 17 (2006): 315-8. The reviewer, Prof. Alan Strange, wrote:
...Lucas teaches church history at Covenant Theological Seminary (St. Louis, MO) and in this biography bears a heavy burden in attempting a "fair and balanced" portrait of R. L. Dabney, who is a challenging subject, having about him both that which is appealing and also that which is unattractive. Lucas, to his credit, pulls it off handily. The book is well-researched, well-written, and always maintains the readers' interest. The biography is remarkable because Lucas looks straight at Dabney and does not flinch...
