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 begot in his men something akin to his own vigor and strength, his love of truth and of God. For its preparation Robert L. Hodge , was certainly suited. While his exposition and vindication of credal Christianity is akin to that of other reformed authors, he has a literary force and ability to stimulate thought which is distinctive.
The fact that his Systematic Theology , first published in , is now in its ninth edition is proof in itself that the volume is not superfluous. Hence the truth he taught burnt in on the student, and made an indelible impression. Submit your testimonial. There are no testimonials yet, would you like to submit yours?

Robert Lewis Dabney
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.
