Abraham Lincoln is the most beloved of all US presidents. He freed the
slaves, gave the world some of its most beautiful phrases, and redefined the
meaning of America. He did all of this with wisdom, compassion, and wit.
Yet, 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?
In this thrilling journey through a largely unknown part of American
history, New York Times bestselling 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.
