An enlightening “mental biography” of Lincoln, Allen Guelzo’s peerless account of America’s most celebrated president explores the position of concepts in Lincoln’s life, treating him as a critical thinker deeply concerned within the nineteenth-century debates over politics, faith, and tradition. Written with ardour and dramatic influence, Guelzo’s masterful research gives a revealing new perspective on a person whose life was in some ways a paradox.
Since its unique publication in 1999,
Abraham Lincoln: Redeemer President has garnered quite a few accolades, not least the celebrated 2000 Lincoln Prize. As journalist Richard N. Ostling has famous, “A lot has been written about Lincoln’s perception and disbelief,” however Guelzo’s extraordinary account “goes deeper.”
