Reviews - What do customers think about Walking with Lincoln: Spiritual Strength from America's Favorite President?
Lincoln and his God Mar 22, 2010
As a civil war buff I am always interested in reading about the major players in this terrible event in history. I have read many books dealing with Lincoln but none have given much time to his beliefs and his views on Christianity. Finally there is a book that delves into his reliance on God and how belief in God played a more than passing effect on how he dealt with his job as president and commander and chief of the union army. More than in any other book I find that he was not only well versed in the Bible but he read and practiced its virtues. After reading Mr. Freiling's book I am convinced that Lincoln was a true believer and is in Heaven with his Lord and Savior, a very gratifying thought.

Thomas Freiling's latest is a must read for any and all Lincoln aficionados. He's put together 50 principles, each about 3 or 4 pages long, from Lincoln's writings, his early life, and of course the Civil War. Three of the best are BE FULL OF MERCY (#11), IGNORE YOUR CRITICS (#36), and PURSUE NOT RICHES (#42).
The book is full of interesting facts that any Lincoln fan may not be aware of, like the time he walked 6 miles to get a copy of ENGLISH GRAMMAR to improve his speaking and writing skills, or the time he spent 5 hours standing to salute 30,000 troops marching through Washington.
Freiling writes from a distinctly Christian perspective,although he readily admits that Lincoln .."never joined a church and refused to endorse any particular Christian dogma." (Pg.15) Freiling concludes though that Lincoln's faith was in fact, .."rooted deeply in the truths found in the Bible."
And it's these spiritual principles that will indeed bless anyone who reads this book.
