In this provocative book, Havers argues that charity is a central tenet of what Lincoln once called Americas political religion. He explores the implications of making Christian love the highest moral standard for American democracy, showing how Lincolns legacy demands that a true democracy be charitable toward alland that only a people who lived according to such ideals could succeed in building democracy as Lincoln understood it.
