Reparations: Good or Bad?

Slavery is offensive and incompatible with the principles of freedom and freedom minded people, but it is a part of US and world history. Wrestling with this history and deciding what to do has many perspectives. One perspective involves paying reparations: monetary compensation for damage caused. This review is not a comment on the legitimacy of reparations, rather it is a review of the book, authored by Kwon and Thompson, which strives to call the church in America to repent for its part and participation in the slave trade.

But few probably know that he was the son of a Presbyterian minister, president of Princeton University—then a Presbyterian institution that had always been headed by clergymen until Wilson—from 1902 to 1910, and had a faith-based policy of his own.
