Scholar Philip Ostergard provides the answer with a thorough study of the president''s references to God, the Bible, and Christian principles in his letters and speeches. "The Inspired Wisdom of Abraham" "Lincoln" illustrates the depth of Lincoln''s knowledge of Scripture; the Bible''s influence on his character; and the development of his faith, particularly as he wrestled with the issue of slavery and led the nation through the tumultuous years of the Civil War. Readers will find this a fascinating and inspiring handbook of answers to the questions about one of our greatest presidents.|
