White's compelling description of Lincoln's articulation of our nation's struggle and the suffering of all - North, South, soldier, slave - offers new insight into Lincoln's own hard won victory over doubt and his promise of authority and passion. Delivered only weeks before his assassination, the speech was the culmination of Lincoln's moral and rhetorical genius.
"This excellent title is carefully and clearly read by Raymond Todd....Todd is respectful in his narration, using an appropriate tone throughout....His interpretation carries the reader along for a fascinating story about a very important and very short speech." ( AudioFile)

Ronald White gets Lincoln right
Many Scholars interpreting Lincoln do not seem to have a theological understanding of the reformed/calvinistic faith. therefore they confuse providence and fatalism likewise they confuse Lincoln's God as first cause with passivity. if you want a accurate picture of Lincoln's thought dr white is your man. this is a great book.
