William Eleazar Barton was one of the early twentieth century's most prominent writers and lecturers on the life of Abraham Lincoln. According to Paul Angle in his A Shelf of Lincoln Books, A Critical, Selective Bibliography of Lincolniana, (Rutgers University Press, 1946), this work represents a sincere effort to present only clearly substantiated facts. Dr. Barton sought to establish the truth by four lines of inquiry.

Modern secularists have been reluctant to recognize Abraham Lincoln's deep spirituality, in spite of the fact that he was often known as Father Abraham and has been described as one of the most deeply religious presidents the country has ever seen. Yet for all of his familiarity with the Bible, his invocation of Providence, and of the Almighty, he did not actively participate in a church or lend his name and authority to a denomination. After more than fifty years of hagiographic and contradictory accounts of Abraham Lincoln's life, William Barton stepped boldly into the bedlam of claims and counterclaims about Lincoln's religion. Armed with an enormous collection of Lincoln materials and his own strict evidentiary rules, Barton worked to avoid partisan politicking over Lincoln's legacy and instead to simply lay bare the facts.

I was given new insight into Lincoln the man and his spiritual roots, and came to understand (and marvel) more fully both the cost to him and the great benefit to us today from his Presidency. This is truly worthwhile reading for anyone interested in our country's history.

This book was originally published in 1920 and was republished in 2005 by the University of Illinois Press, presumably with the approaching bicentennial of Lincoln's birth in mind. A new introduction was written by Michael Nelson, professor of political science at Rhodes College. Barton, who died in 1930, was a Congregational minister who became very interested in Lincoln and wrote eight books about him. This was the first and most important.

It is a very good book. Barton was not a professional historian but this book is worthy of the best of them. He did an excellent job of separating facts from the myths that arose about Lincoln after his untimely death and presents an objective analysis of Lincoln's walk toward and with God from his boyhood to his presidency. Some of Lincoln's early biographers said he was an "infidel" but Barton shows that description reflects a narrow, distorted and inaccurate view based on Lincoln's upbringing in a Calvinist Baptist home on the frontier. In that day and place not believing the earth was flat was enough to make one an infidel, and Lincoln was too intelligent for that. Lincoln's faith walk was evolutionary and, as he got older and faced the many vicissitudes of his life, he drew closer to God and one could indeed say that God became his best friend.

Barton is careful to disavow the mythical portrayals of Lincoln as a near saint which arose after his death. At the same time he gives much evidence that Lincoln not only was a good and great man but that he was a very Godly man, and this evidence comes from the private as well as the public Lincoln. "Abraham Lincoln believed in God, in Christ, in the Bible, in prayer, in duty, and in immortality" (p. 288). And, Barton argues, successfully I believe, that Lincoln lived according to his faith and that his faith shaped his politics.
