An interesting article on Abraham Lincoln

Book Cover: Abraham Lincoln, the president who turned the White House into a prayer roomI have a book on my shelf that is called, "Abraham Lincoln, the president who turned the White House into a prayer room" (or something like that if you translate it into English, it's written in Korean). I had it for a couple of years, and it's not even a thick book, but I haven't read it yet. I tend to be suspicious about a Christian testimony/biography of a great public figure. I don't know about Western Christian writers, but Korean Christians seem to fall too often for mixing and/or confusing an earthly ambition with godly character. I admit that I cannot say that as an excuse for not reading that book, my reasoning would only be valid if the book actually is mixing and confusing those two, but until I read it, how can I say the book actually falls into that trap?

Since it's written in Korean, it shouldn't take me too long to read it. I should pick it up and read it sometime soon.

Anyways, I just read this essay on Lincoln's religion yesterday, and it gave me a whole new perspective on Abraham Lincoln. I think it's worth taking a look if you know who Abraham Lincoln is at all, and that's most of you out there.
