How Lincoln's Faith Shaped His Leadership

Undoubtedly the most revered leader in American history, Abraham Lincoln has had more books written about him than all our nation's presidents put together. But for all that's been written, little has focused on his faith and how this quality shaped the man who led our country during its most tumultuous years.

Author Joe Wheeler, historian and scholar, brings to the pages of this insightful book the knowledge gleaned from over ten years of study and more than sixty books on the life and times of Abraham Lincoln. Skillfully weaving his own narrative with direct quotes from Lincoln and poignant excerpts from other Lincoln biographers, Wheeler brings a refreshingly friendly rendition of Lincoln's life, faith, and courage.

The stories, historical details, and powerful quotes on the pages of this book will leave a lasting impression on your heart, your mind, and your life.

I absolutely loved this book (and wouldn't lend it out until I saw that I could have it on my Nook also) Unlike other Lincoln biographies this one is written in more of a vignette style. It is very refreshing and easy to read. I liked the way that Joe Wheeler blended his narrative with direct quotes. Many of the quotes are very powerful and difficult to forget. I appreciated that Mr. Wheeler was honest about his agenda in writing the book-it is a book that focuses on the faith of Abraham Lincoln and how that influenced him during different eras of his life. Mr. Wheeler was not afraid to address the times in Lincoln's life when he pushed away his faith, nor was he afraid to point out his return to faith in the latter years of his life. I liked his balance and his ability to back up most of his opinions with actual quotes. As with all history there is always some room for opinions to vary in some areas.
