Elton Trueblood (1900-1994) wrote several bestselling religious titles and taught philosophy at Earlham College in Richmond, Indiana.
"One of the most fascinating and revealing pictures of Lincoln ever published."--Floyd S. Barringer, M.D., president of the Abraham Lincoln Association "As a spiritual counselor to American presidents, from Hoover to Reagan, this is Elton Trueblood at his finest"--Paul N. Anderson, professor of biblical and Quaker studies, George Fox University "Arguably the greatest American President, Abraham Lincoln emerged as the great spiritual leader to carry our nation through her greatest spiritual anguish. Elton Trueblood vividly traces the tangled human pilgrimage which led to such astonishing spiritual leadership and shows us what we can learn."--Richard J. Foster, author of Celebration of Discipline "Trueblood serves as a worthy guide in returning us to the unparalleled drama of Lincoln within our nation's most important struggle."--From the foreword by Gustav Niebuhr, Syracuse University, author of Beyond Tolerance "A singularly persuasive and moving elucidation of Lincoln's spiritual pilgrimage."--Charles L. Wallis, editor of Our American Heritage
