LINCOLNOn May 30, 1864, Lincoln expressed his gratitude to American Baptists for their support of his efforts to eradicate slavery. A Baptist delegation had met with the President on May 28, 1864 and presented him with a document containing resolutions which condemned slavery and provided a biblical and theological basis for Lincoln's war efforts.

Al Staggs compelling portrayal of Abraham Lincoln is a window into the life and times of our greatest president. He communicates the wit and wisdom, complexities and convictions of the man who saved the Union and freed the slaves. Staggs' Lincoln is a welcome addition to his repertoire of those whose faith in Christ and commitment to the Gospel compelled them to follow Jesus no matter the cost, surrendering even their own lives to advance the kingdom of God.
