    Great Insight to a Quiet leader

    I feel this documentary should be highly recommended. It gives great insight to both Abe and Mary as childern and through out their time together. It also helps clear up some of the beliefs of Mary not being the loving spouse to Abraham. This was very well done and very entertaining to watch.
