Worst "History" ever
If you are looking for a book that makes tendacious, specious arguements condescending to people of faith, this is a good choice. I've enjoyed some of Gropnik's other work, even though he makes his atheism known. But this was just a supercilious piece of drivel that unfortunately didn't show its true intent until I was far enough into it to decide to choke through the last hundred pages or so. He attempts to make Lincoln out to be agnostic at best, and athiest likely. Of all the histories I've read on our 16th president, this is the first time I was exposed to this arguement. Reading Lincoln's most famous speeches, this is a really hard pill to swallow.
