"Devil Servant!"
Unbelievable as it seems, these names were once hurled at one of America's greatest heroes. 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. Thankfully, he provided his own acount of many personal experiences. To his own accounting may be added the research of countless other historians.
But sadly enough, the spiritual side of Abraham Lincoln has been seldom reported. Because he held no formal church membership, he has even been labeled "anti-Christian."
There is, however, little doubt that Abraham Lincoln was a most 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 spiritual faith a person holds? In Lincoln's case, the trying events of his earlier life seem to have provided him with a rich full faith during his final years. This book will attempt to explore 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 to the life of Abraham Lincoln, hisstory is told as a first person account. Hopefully this means of presentation will allow the reader to become part of the events as they occur.
