Lincoln’s spiritual journey
Abraham Lincoln, unlike most of his political brethren, kept organized Christianity at arm’s length. But as he came to appreciate the growing political and military importance of the Christian community, and when death touched the Lincoln household, the erstwhile skeptic effectively evolved into a believer.
This is the story of that transformation and the ways in which religion helped millions of Northerners interpret the carnage of the era. Rather than focus on battles and personalities, author Joshua Zeitz probes ways in which war and spiritual convictions became intertwined.
After Lincoln's death, Americans needed to memorialize him as a Christian martyr. The truth was considerably more complicated, as this original book explores.
