Summary

Perhaps no other American president is as revered as Abraham Lincoln, whose strong faith and moral courage inspired a nation, and whose timeless words of common sense continue to influence men and women today. 	In Abraham Lincoln's Daily Treasure, readers will find daily devotional selections in a variety of subject themes. Each devotion includes Scripture, a devotional thought, a spiritual or inspirational quote from Lincoln or a related fact about his life, and take-away for personal application. This unique devotional is built around the Believer's Daily Treasure, a book Lincoln was given in 1847 upon the death of his son and that he carried with him always. Lincoln often quoted from the Believer's Daily Treasure in his addresses to the nation and included snippets from it in his letters. He also read from it for personal strength during the Civil War.	Readers who are wanting an interesting devotional, Christians looking for wisdom distilled through the lens of history, Lincoln aficionados, and history buffs will all appreciate this unique look into the life of Lincoln that is ideal for personal use or for gift-giving.
