Overview

"Don Phillips has done it again . . . bringing Lincoln's brilliant leadership to life. Lincoln's brilliance is as relevant today as it was a century and half ago." -- George Bodenheimer, former president, ESPN, and author of Every Town Is a Sports Town

How can President Lincoln's wisdom be applied to the most pressing conflicts of modern-day America?

With a characteristically fresh and perceptive reading of Abraham Lincoln's own writings and speeches, best-selling author Donald T. Phillips reveals how America's sixteenth president handled many of the same national dilemmas we face today. Looking to Lincoln's exemplary leadership of a fractured nation, Phillips offers a deeply relevant analysis of how Lincoln's example could help forge solutions to the many issues and divisions challenging our country now.

" An] intelligent and often moving look at one of the nation's greatest presidents . . . Using his extensive knowledge of Lincoln, Phillips makes convincing cases throughout for what the nineteenth-century statesman's opinion would be on a wide array of issues faced by the twenty-first-century United States, including climate change, torture, immigration, and equal pay for women. For readers who find present-day politics almost too much to contemplate, Phillips's closing vision of Lincoln witnessing the 'current state of affairs' will be especially poignant and bittersweet." -- Publishers Weekly
