Dabney’s Systematic Theology Free in Kindle Format

R.L. Dabney (1820-1898) was a Southern Presbyterian who served as a pastor (of Tinkling Spring Presbyterian Church), professor (at Union Theological Seminary in Virginia and the newly formed University of Texas at Austin), and also as a military officer (chief of staff to General Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson). His Lectures in Systematic Theology is the syllabus and notes he used to teach theology. The text is nicely converted to Kindle format and is free. Unfortunately, while it looks like the Greek quotes are transliterated, the Hebrew becomes meaningless text. For example in the chapter “The Fall and Original Sin,” the Greek expression Ἡ ἁμαρτία ἐστὶν ἡ ἀνομία (1 Jo 3:4) becomes H amartia estin h anomia. But the Hebrew term חֲטָאָֽה becomes ha;f;j}. Still, Dabney’s work is a valuable contribution and the price is perfect.
