*Winner of the 2000 Lincoln Prize
This unique intellectual portrait explores the role of ideas in Lincoln's life. Guelzo presents Lincoln as a serious thinker deeply involved in the problems of nineteenth-century thought, including those of classical liberalism, the Lockean enlightenment, Victorian unbelief, and Calvinist spirituality. Lincoln emerges as a philosophical man who appropriates certain religious values without adhering to any religion, who insists on the pre-eminence of self-interest in spite of becoming the Great Emancipator, and who appeals to natural law and natural theology in politics while remaining a classical nineteenth-century liberal in principle. Based on primary materials from a wide variety of archives, this insightful work sheds light on the intellectual conflicts that led to civil war and that still influence today's ''culture wars.''
From the Publisher: Allen Guelzo's major new biography Abraham Lincoln: Redeemer President (Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Company) has won the prestigious Lincoln Prize, the annual award given to the best work in the Civil War field. Sharing the award is a book on slavery, Runaway Slaves: Rebels in the Plantation, by John Hope Franklin and Loren Schweninger.
Guelzo's book breaks new ground in exploring the role of ideas in Lincoln's life, treating him for the first time as a serious thinker deeply involved in the struggles of 19th-century thought. Lincoln emerges from Guelzo's portrait as a creative yet profoundly paradoxical man-possessing deep moral and religious character yet not adhering to any organized form of religion, a classic nineteenth century liberal who yet came to realize that the liberal state could not survive without an appeal to natural law and natural theology.
Guelzo is dean of the Templeton Honors College and Grace F. Kea Professor of American History at Eastern College in Pennsylvania, and a former fellow of the Charles Warren Center at Harvard University.
Presented by the Lincoln and Soldiers Institute of Gettysburg College, the Lincoln Prize is the most generous award in the field of American history. Each of the winning books will earn a $20,000 prize and a bronze bust of Lincoln. The awards, announced on Lincoln's birthday, will be presented at an April 18, 2000 banquet in New York City.
