9781495807459: Lincoln's Faith: Expressed in His Own Words and Deeds

Of the 16th President of the United States and of his leadership during our nation s greatest crisis, the question has been raised: Was Abraham Lincoln s use of the Bible, his references to God, and his talk of divine purpose merely a scheming politician s attempt to win votes and hold favor; or was it a genuine expression of the deeply-personal and humbly-guided faith of one who knew that he and his nation needed God and must rely upon God? This book seeks to answer that question.
