Lincoln’s Use of the Bible


About three years ago, I ran across this book. It is originally published in 1909 and written by Samuel Trevena Jackson. I had just learned about the copyright laws in the United States. I took the original book and created an eBook from it for better read. This is such a great read that every American should read how Abraham Lincoln used his Bible in his life, including his time as the president of the United States.

Blurb from the book….. Lincoln’s reply to a committee of colored people of Baltimore who presented him with a Bible, September 7, 1864, gives his opinion of the Bible: ” In regard to this great book I have but to say: It is the best gift God has given to man. All the good Saviour gave to this world was communicated through this book. But for it we could not know right from wrong. All things most desirable for man’s welfare here and hereafter are to be found portrayed in it. To you I return my most sincere thanks for the very elegant copy of the great Book of God which you present.
