Editorial Reviews

Review

Morel has produced a solid, useful addition to the Lincoln literature. (Michael Burlingame North Carolina Historical Review)

Morel's work draws considerably—as he acknowledges—from Crisis of the House Divided, my book on the Lincoln-Douglas debates published forty years ago, especially from the chapters on the Lyceum and Temperance speeches. However, Morel gives a thoroughly fresh reading of those speeches, and discovers in them dozens of biblical references, allusions, and paraphrases that I had not noticed or identified. In addition, he locates these texts within the framework of church history and church controversycontemporaneous with Lincoln. How Lincoln negotiated his way amidst sectarian differences, enlisting religious dispositions for non-sectarian political ends, especially in his Second Inaugural, is described with great sensitivity and great precision.I can say candidly that I learned a great deal from reading this book.. (Harry V. Jaffa, Philosophy Emeritus at Claremont McKenna College, Claremont McKenna College and Claremont Graduate School)
