Excerpt from Abraham Lincoln the Christian

Lincoln, the Lawyer ; Lincoln, the Citizen ; Lincoln, the Story-Teller ; Lincoln, the Statesman ; Lincoln, the Friend of Man, and other phases of this remarkable character, have received special treatment at the hands of various students and writers. While some attention has been given to the religious side, it has been comparatively meager, and has not received the prominence that it deserves.

Sixteen years ago, as Lincoln's Birthday drew near, I was astonished to hear and read so much that he was an infidel, atheist, deist, Universalist, Unitarian, Spiritualist, etc. Although I was a great admirer of him and had studied his life, having been born and brought up not very far from his Indiana home, up to that time my attention had not been directed to his religious beliefs. It seemed to be taken for granted that he was a Christian, but I was not able to meet the statements of those who declared that he was not.
