Publisher Comments:

Abraham Lincoln is the most beloved of all U.S. 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 best-selling 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.

Jessica Dahl, January 1, 2013 (view all comments by Jessica Dahl)
For a man who is revered by almost everyone throughout American history, "Lincoln's Battle with God" shows a side of our president that most people do not know about. Lincoln's struggle with depression, atheism, and the 1800 spin machine is rarely talked about in American history classes. This books uses references, digs through archives, and takes the reader on a journey through Lincoln's dark side to reveal how God can overcome anything.
