No Discipline Is Safe

I wonder if Zondervan would publish this paragraph today:

The doctrine of the unity of God has both philosophical and devotional implications of the greatest importance. Somewhere in Uncle Tom’s Cabin Harriet Beecher Stowe has a beautiful passage in which she describes the devout Christian, Uncle Tom, spelling out the words of his Bible by the light of the fire in the darkness. The Christian mind, she says, is not afraid of evil spirits in the dark, for faith in God somehow brings with it the conviction of the orderliness of the universe.

James Oliver Buswell, A Systematic Theology of the Christian Religion, vol. 1 (Grand Rapids: Zondervan, 1962), 103.
