Join New York Times bestselling author Stephen Mansfield as he dives into the incredible story of Abraham Lincoln's spiritual life and draws from it a deeper meaning that's sure to inspire us all.
Abraham Lincoln is, undoubtedly, among the most beloved of all U.S. presidents. He helped to abolish slavery, gave the world some of its most memorable speeches, and redefined the meaning of America. He did all of this with endless 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.
In this thrilling journey through a largely unknown part of American history, Mansfield traces Lincoln's exploring:
- Lincoln's lifelong spiritual journey
- The ways that Lincoln's faith shaped his presidency and beyond
- How Lincoln's struggle with faith can inspire modern believers
Let Lincoln's Battle with God show you Lincoln's life and legacy in a brand new light.
