Paul Buhle. Illustrated by Sharon Rudahl.
Foreword by Eric Foner.
There is no greater symbol of the American presidency
than Abraham Lincoln. Though, Lincoln himself,
his personality, the sources of his dedication
and his idealism, remains very much a mystery.
Well over a thousand books about Lincoln have
been written and still the enigma remains, perhaps
because it is the enigma of a young country finding
its footing and its destiny. Yet, no part is deeper,
more perplexing, than Lincoln’s own beliefs about
god and destiny. Lincoln For Beginners sets to
demystify the man behind the legend.
