The story of Abraham Lincolns faith and intellectual lifeupdated and revised with a new prefacefrom the three-time winner of the Lincoln Prize and best-selling Civil Warera historian Allen Guelzo.
Allen Guelzos peerless account of Americas most celebrated president explores the role of ideas in Lincolns life, treating him as a serious thinker deeply involved in the nineteenth-century debates over politics, religion, and culture. Through masterful and original scholarly work, Guelzo relates the outward events of Lincolns life to his inner spiritual struggles and sets them both against the intellectual backdrop of his age. The sixteenth president emerges as a creative yet profoundly paradoxical manpossessed of deep moral and religious character yet without adherence to organized religion.
Since its original publication in 1999, Abraham Lincoln: Redeemer President has garnered numerous accolades, not least the prestigious Lincoln Prize. After writing several other acclaimed studies of Lincoln and other aspects of Civil Warera history, Guelzo returns to update this important early work for a second edition. A new preface addresses the developments in Lincoln scholarship in the years since the books original publication and offers Guelzos fascinating retrospective look at the unusual path he took to becoming a Lincoln scholar.
PRAISE FOR THE FIRST EDITION:
"It is a testament to the strength of Redeemer President that the matters it addresses resist easy summary. The value of the book itself, however, is easy enough to state: Out of the countless volumes written about our 16th president, it ranks quite simply among the best."
