Publisher's Description

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.

    "Lincoln's Battle with God" by Stephen Mansfield is a spiritually biographic account of Abraham Lincoln's life. It follow his from his parents to his death depicting his beliefs pertaining to religion and God. Lincoln not only had a battle with God, but also with religion. Which are two totally different things. His relationship with God went from anger to disbelief to acceptance and finally reliance. His relationship with religion was pretty much always bad. He never joined a church or attended any one particular church regularly. The book also follows his wife during their marriage, telling of her actions and beliefs pertaining to God and the spiritual world. This is a pretty good book. There were a lot of things in here I had not heard before. I have read plenty of books on the Lincolns and this still taught me. At times, I felt the writer was angry that Lincoln never made a complete statement on his religious beliefs, but I am glad that Lincoln never felt the need to share that with the public. The relationship between Lincoln and God was just that; between Lincoln and God.I received this book for free in a giveaway through the Thomas Nelson Facebook page.
