Throughout his life, Lincoln fought with God. In his early years in Illinois, he rejected even the existence of God and became the village atheist. In time, this changed but still he wrestled with the truth of the Bible, preachers, doctrines, the will of God, the providence of God, and then, finally, God's purposes in the Civil War. Still, on the day he was shot, Lincoln said he longed to go to Jerusalem to walk in the Savior's steps. What had happened? What was the journey that took Abraham Lincoln from outspoken atheist to a man who yearned to walk in the footsteps of Christ? Author Stephen Mansfield tells the richly textured story of Abraham Lincoln's spiritual life and draws from it a meaning sure to inspire Americans today.

Dear LRS1969,

How much research have YOU done on the subject ?

Great book! I wonder if the book would be more palatable to some if the author was an ultra Liberal, fundamentalist...

Terrible book. More opinions, unsubstantiated claims, quotes out of context, etcetera than facts.

Authors is an ultra conservative, fundamentalist who consistently places his agendas intentionally into his various publications, and this one is no different.

For a better read that is imminently more factual, read "Lincoln and the American Manifesto".
