Never have I learned so much about a person I thought I already knew. This is a great book on Audible as it makes all the details flow into a story without the common monotony sometimes accompanying long biographies. Made me love Lincoln even more.
Anything written by Allen Guelzo is always superb and to be trusted. Not only does his writing flow, but his analysis is sensitive, discerning and penetrating. It is always a joy for me to read anything written by Dr. Guelzo.
"Abraham Lincoln: Redeemer President" by Allen C. Guelzo is a book about Abraham Lincoln's ideas. Guelzo explains that lincoln's opposition to slavery started from his opposition to being pigeonholed into the same subsistence farming lifestyle as his father. This helps explain many otherwise puzzling features of Lincoln's career, like the fact that he acted a lawyer for a slaveowner who wanted to reclaim a runaway slave before he became President. The book also explains his evolving attitude to belief in God.
Edward Lewis reads the book clearly.
