Review

""Lincoln and Religion" is an intelligently constructed work upon which conversations regarding Lincoln s religious allegiances and implications can be aptly built." "Foreword"

This welcome addition to the Concise Lincoln Library by the late Ferenc Morton Szasz deftly picks its way through the minefield constituted by the historical controversies regarding Lincoln s religious beliefs. It shows brilliantly how Lincoln has become the central figure in a civil religion and presents a carefully nuanced answer to the perennial question; Was Lincoln a Christian? The book is a worthy companion to Professor Szasz s "Abraham Lincoln and Robert Burns: Connected Lives and Legends," also published by Southern Illinois University Press. Michael Burlingame, Chancellor Naomi B. Lynn Distinguished Chair in Lincoln Studies, University of Illinois Springfield

This book is ashort, able, and important contribution to religion, Abraham Lincoln, and the Civil War. A good read, but beyond that, Richard W. Etulain provides an excellent summary of the subject from 1866 to today, and Sara Gabbard compiles great quotes from Lincoln on the topic of religion. If you are going to read a short book about the subject, this is the""book. Gabor S. Boritt, author of "The Will of God Prevails"

"Lincoln and Religion is an intelligently constructed work upon which conversations regarding Lincoln's religious allegiances and implications can be aptly built."--Foreword

Perhaps the book's most significant contribution is its expression of the centrality of religion to nineteenth-century Americans and the ways religious ideologies and rhetoric played a role in political discourse. For most students, this will be a new idea; and the knowledge that Abraham Lincoln arguably understood that connection better than most politicians and political observers of his era will open up a new dimension of Lincoln's famous words with which most students are already acquainted. As Szasz explains so succinctly, "during the Civil War era, politics, religion, and sacred language overlapped on a variety of fronts" (49).--Stacy Pratt McDermott, Lincoln in Brief: A Review Essay
--Stacy Pratt Mcdermott"The Annals of Iowa/State Historical Society of Iowa" (05/31/2017)

Ferenc Morton Szasz taught at the University of New Mexico from 1967 until his death in 2010. He published a dozen books, including The Day the Sun Rose Twice: The Story of the Trinity Site Nuclear Explosion, July 16, 1945; Religion in the Modern American West; and Abraham Lincoln and Robert Burns: Connected Lives and Legends. His most recent book, Atomic Comics: Cartoonists Confront the Nuclear World, was selected by Choice as one of the best books published in 2012.

Margaret Connell Szasz, a professor of history at the University of New Mexico, is the author of several books, including Education and the American Indian: The Road to Self-Determination; Between Indian and White Worlds: The Cultural Broker; Indian Education in the American Colonies, 1607–1783; and Scottish Highlanders and Native Americans: Indigenous Education in the Eighteenth-Century Atlantic World.
