Researching how Lincoln's Beliefs effected His Government;
INTRO to ALL LINCOLN PAGES:
Abe Lincoln: He may be the Greatest Democratically-Elected Leader ever!
More books have been written about Honest Abe than any other human being except Jesus Christ.
More statues have been erected to President Abraham Lincoln than any other person who ever lived . . . also excepting Jesus Christ!
Of thousands of Presidential Monuments in the USA dedicated to the 44 presidents, one-third are dedicated to Lincoln, one-third to the Founding Fathers, and one-third to all the rest.
On a world-wide stage, the difference is even more striking. The statues in memory to Lincoln exceed all other USA presidents combined, several times over.
In fact, the books and statues to Lincoln exceed the books & statures for the other top-10 American Presidents - combined:
Thus Lincoln failed in more quests than he succeeded, and lost more elections than he won, but when he finally won, he had Proven Principles upon which to lead and govern greatly!

Abraham Lincoln and Jesus Christ, Compared for Students, Disciples: The Mystery of Lincoln's Attraction!
Of whom 'Five-New-Books-Are-Written-About-Him-Every-Single-Day, with over 300-MILLION copies of His Words printed every year formally (in the western world) . . . (and 'mere-mortals boast of "BEST SELLING BOOKS that reach a Million or 10 in a "Life-Time?"). . .
. . . and there are 24,000-Plus new Christian Titles in the USA each year, not to mention the many "Top-Sellers" that attract new readers year after year, plus the "Classics" that have been selling for centuries . . .
. . . from the Pilgrim's Bible (now 450 years old), the KJV Bible (400 years old in 2011) Pilgrims Progress (the largest selling book of all time after the Bible, Matthew Henry's Commentary and Adam Clarke's Commentaries (on every preachers desk in the free world!)
. . . and this 24,000 new Christian Books is just from the USA alone!
ONLY GOD KNOWS!
Only God knows just how many Books are written about Jesus, how many copies of His Words, how many books about ministry, Church leadership, Christianity, etc., are written in the 230 nations of the world, especially with the greatest Christian growth taking place in Hispanic-Latino Nations, China, Africa, and Southeast Asia.
At least one such researcher places the figures at 100 new books about Jesus every day, 100,000 new titles per year and a billion copies of the Words of Jesus EVERY YEAR, world-wide,
Additionally, there has been 'A-New-Book-Written-About-Jesus-Every-Day . . . For-Over-A-THOUSAND-YEARS'; with more statues erected to 'His Honor' in every land, than anyone can tell . . . because they are neither counted, nor known, for multitude.
What does this have to do with Abraham Lincoln?

Abraham Lincoln, More Books about Him than Jesus Christ?
Lincoln: The World Studies Him!
After Jesus Christ, however, there have been more books written about Abraham Lincoln than any other person who ever lived - 16,000 as of 2009:
[Source Craig Symonds, Author of "Lincoln, His Admirers"].
After Jesus, there have been more seekers, writers readers and admirers about Abraham Lincoln - the humble, countrified, never-attending-grade-school - much less college!
Abraham Lincoln, somewhat 'ill-bred' (crude, some declared!) but born and raised in a 'three-sided-log cabin' (the fourth open to the elements, protected by a fire for the panthers and bears prowling at night;
Yet Lincoln has been studied, written and red about more than any other human being:
>> more than any King, Pharaoh, Caesar, or Czar; Thus by so many searching-&-researching Lincoln’s Life, everything knowable should already be known:
>> more than any Dictator, Emperor, President or Prime Minister;
>> more than any Shah, Ayatollah, Imam or Generals of Armies;
>> more than any Scientist, Philosopher, Musician, Sports or TV Star;
>> In fact - according to some research - there have been more books about Lincoln than all other US Presidents: combined!
If you inquire about Abraham Lincoln's faith, you will find every position of faith possible thus attributed: Angry-Atheist, Super-Skeptic, Antagonistically-Agnostic, Doubting-Deist, Trusting-Theist, Effervescent-Evangelical, Fervently-Faithful . . . and ALL POSITIONS have a dozen personal "quotes" to prove their particular point of view.

Abraham Lincoln: Is he the Greatest "Christian Leader" of all Time?
Lincoln: The World Studies Him! Do You?
"The one aspect of his parents' Calvinist religion that Lincoln apparently embraced wholeheartedly throughout his life was the 'doctrine of necessity,' also known as 'predestination', determinism, or fatalism, or 'Providence' - which George Washington also believed SO STRONGLY!
It was almost always through the lenses of Providence that Lincoln assessed the meaning of the Civil War.
[SOURCE: Guelzo, Allen C. (1997). "Abraham Lincoln and the Doctrine of Necessity". Journal of the Abraham Lincoln Association].
Their website is: http://www.historycooperative.org/journals/jala/18.1/guelzo.html.
In September 1864, Lincoln, placing the Civil War squarely within a divine province, wrote in a letter to a member of the Society of Friends, "The purposes of the Almighty are perfect, and must prevail, though we erring mortals may fail accurately to perceive them in advance.
We hoped for a happy termination of this terrible war long before this;
** but God knows best,
** and has ruled otherwise...
** we must work earnestly in the best light He gives us,
** trusting that so working still conduces to the great ends He ordains.
** Surely He intends some great good to follow this mighty convulsion, which no mortal could make, and no mortal could stay."
[SOURCE: Donald (1996), pp. 514–515].
Following Lincoln's assassination, the well-known Presbyterian clergyman, the Rev. John H. Barrows, D.D., wrote and signed as follows: that Lincoln had become a Christian while in Washington.
"In the anxious uncertainties of the great war, he gradually rose to the heights where Jehovah became to him the sublimest of realities, the ruler of nations. (PROVIDENCE)
When he wrote his immortal Proclamation, he revoked upon it not only 'the considerate judgment of mankind,' but the 'gracious favor of Almighty God.'(PROVIDENCE)
When darkness gathered over the brave armies fighting for the nation's life, this strong man in the early morning knelt and wrestled in prayer . . .
. . . with Him who holds the fate of empires.(PROVIDENCE)
When the clouds lifted above the carnage of Gettysburg, he gave his heart to the Lord Jesus Christ.
When he pronounced his matchless oration on the chief battlefield of the war, he gave expression to the resolve that 'this nation, under God, should have a new birth of freedom.'
And when he wrote his last Inaugural Address, he gave it the lofty religious tone of an old Hebrew psalm.
[SOURCE: The Rev. John H. Barrows, D.D., well-known Presbyterian clergyman; "Lincoln Memorial Album". p. 508, Library of Congress, USA].
At the same time, Lincoln sat down in his office and penned the following words:
The will of God prevails.
In great contests each party claims to act in accordance with the will of God. Both may be, and one must be, wrong.
God cannot be for and against the same thing at the same time.
In the present civil war it is quite possible that God's purpose is something different from the purpose of either party -- and yet the human instrumentalities, working just as they do, are of the best adaptation to effect His purpose.
I am almost ready to say that this is probably true -- that God wills this contest, and wills that it shall not end yet.
By his mere great power, on the minds of the now contestants, He could have either saved or destroyed the Union without a human contest. Yet the contest began. And, having begun He could give the final victory to either side any day. Yet the contest proceeds.
This concept continued to dominate Lincoln's public remarks for the rest of the war. The same theological allegory was to be prominent in Lincoln's Second Inaugural Address in March 1865:
Lincoln's Second Inaugural Address
Both [North and South] read the same Bible, and pray to the same God; and each invokes His aid against the other. It may seem strange that any men should dare to ask a just God's assistance in wringing their bread from the sweat of other men's faces; but let us judge not that we be not judged. The prayers of both could not be answered; that of neither has been answered fully. The Almighty has His own purposes.
In the autumn of 1863, Lincoln issued the first Federally mandated Thanksgiving Day to be kept on the last Thursday in November. Reflecting on the successes of the past year, Lincoln said,
"No human counsel hath devised nor hath any mortal hand worked out these great things.
They are the gracious gifts of the Most High God, who, while dealing with us in anger for our sins, hath nevertheless remembered mercy.
It has seemed to me fit and proper that they should be solemnly, reverently and gratefully acknowledged as with one heart and one voice by the whole American People.
I do therefore invite my fellow citizens in every part of the United States, and also those who are at sea and those who are sojourning in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next,
as a day of Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens. [SOURCE: "NPS Source Book: Abraham Lincoln". http://www.cr.nps.gov/history/online_books/source/sb2/sb2w.htm. Retrieved 2010-02-20].
