Abraham Lincoln endured much suffering in his lifetime, but he was a true sower of faith and freedom. The life of Abraham Lincoln is well recorded for history – through his own journals and the detailed research of countless historians. But sadly, the spiritual side of Abraham Lincoln has seldom been reported, partly because he held no formal church membership.
There is, however, little doubt that Lincoln was a devoted Christian. His entire life reflects a deep personal faith in God. Certainly there were periods of doubt and questioning. But do doubts and questions weaken or strengthen the faith a person holds? In Lincoln’s case, the trying events of his earlier life seem to have instilled in him a rich, full faith for his final years.
This book explores the spiritual side of Abraham Lincoln, relying on his own words and the observations of his family, his friends, and historians. To add a more personal dimension, his story is told as a first person account – hopefully this will allow the reader to become part of the events as they occur.
