From his birth in the Kentucky wilderness to his assassination at Ford's Theatre in Washington, V. Neil Wyrick presents a vivid portrait of Abraham Lincoln that answers these questions. Through stories and quotes, he lets Lincoln's life dramatically speak of his faith in God and the Bible during the stressful period of the Civil War.

    The Abraham Lincoln I Never Knew

    A real page turner! I found myself sitting in my rocking chair reading 'just one more chapter', then another 'just one more chapter', when I should have been doing other things. I have read many things about Abraham Lincoln, but I never really knew him until I read this book. Meeting Mr. Lincoln as he really was - was a very good thing.
