Inside The Blanket Fort - Episode 155
Journey back Inside The Blanket Fort as we continue our conversation with author Gordon Leidner about his book, Abraham Lincoln and the Bible: A Complete Compendium.
Published this April, this book delves into Lincoln’s lifelong study of scripture and how it influenced him as a man and as a president. Leidner believes the Bible had a profound impact on Lincoln and has investigated all of his known writings to identify, catalog, and study every instance in which Lincoln quoted from or alluded to the Bible. Rather than dwelling on the never-ending debate about Lincoln’s religious beliefs, Leidner shows how scripture affected Lincoln personally, professionally, and politically.
This week we ask Leidner about what surprises he encountered during his research for Abraham Lincoln and the Bible: A Complete Compendium.
