Many writers have explored Lincoln's leadership; others have debated Lincoln's ambiguous religious identity. But in this classic work, Christian philosopher and statesman Elton Trueblood reveals how Lincoln's leadership skills flowed directly from his religious convictions which explains how the president was able to combine what few leaders can hold together: moral resoluteness with a shrewd ability to compromise; confidence in his cause while refusing to succumb to the traps of self-righteousness or triumphalism; and a commitment to victory while never losing sight of his responsibility for or the humanity of his enemy. These rich meditations offer deep wisdom and insight on one of the most effective leaders of all time."

I first read Trueblood's study of Lincoln over thirty years ago when I was studying theology in Rome at the Gregorian University. It made a deep impression on me then. Rereading it again in the past few weeks has confirmed my judgment that Abraham Lincoln is perhaps the most important theologian of history (puzzling out the way God is active in history) the world has known, and one of the greatest theologians in American history.
