Publisher's Description

Many writers have explored Lincoln's leadership; others have debated Lincoln's ambiguous religious identity. But in this classic work, Christian philosopher and statesman Elton Trueblood reveals how Lincoln's leadership skills flowed directly from his religious convictions—which explains how the president was able to combine what few leaders can hold together: moral resoluteness with a shrewd ability to compromise; confidence in his cause while refusing to succumb to the traps of self-righteousness or triumphalism; and a commitment to victory while never losing sight of his responsibility for—or the humanity of—his enemy. These rich meditations offer deep wisdom and insight on one of the most effective leaders of all time.

Author Bio

Elton Trueblood (1900-1994) wrote several bestselling religious titles and taught philosophy at Earlham College in Richmond, Indiana.

Editorial Reviews

“One of the most fascinating and revealing pictures of Lincoln ever published.”
“Trueblood serves as a worthy guide in returning us to the unparalleled drama of Lincoln within our nation’s most important struggle.”
“Arguably the greatest American President, Abraham Lincoln emerged as the great spiritual leader to carry our nation through her greatest spiritual anguish. Elton Trueblood vividly traces the tangled human pilgrimage which led to such astonishing spiritual leadership and shows us what we can learn.”
“As a spiritual counselor to American presidents, from Hoover to Reagan, this is Elton Trueblood at his finest”
“A singularly persuasive and moving elucidation of Lincoln’s spiritual pilgrimage.”
