Abraham Lincoln became the sixteenth US president during a very dark time in America's history. Author Timothy Ballard explores the crucial role that President Lincoln played to bring this nation closer to heaven. Readers will see Lincoln as a man inspired of God who invoked a covenant relationship between America and its maker??not unlike the national covenants invoked by righteous leaders in the Book of Mormon. In addition, The Lincoln Hypothesis reveals documented evidence that Abraham Lincoln did, in fact, check out the Book of Mormon as he struggled with making some of the most critical decisions of his presidency. Did he read it? Did it influence him? Was the Book of Mormon a key factor in Lincoln's success and the healing of a nation?

The author states, "As you read, you will, like a prosecutor reviewing a case, or like a jury determining a verdict, identify valuable pieces of evidence that can be fully substantiated. You will also identify pieces of evidence that cannot. I ask you to consider all the evidence and weight it accordingly. Through this study, many questions regarding the interplay between the restored gospel and the Civil War will be answered. New questions may emerge that will not be so easily answered. Either way, in the end you will find yourself on a most exhilarating investigative journey."… (más)

Apart from my first quibble, it wasn't bad. I'm not sure the argument is water tight (mostly because sometimes I thought he had 2 theses when at times he would claim 1 so that could have been clarified and addressed a tiny bit better). Similarly, I think a little liberty was taken with the story of Sullivan Ballou (don't read that letter on a bad day. I was nearly inconsolable ;P ). But a very engrossing read. ( )

If you come at this as a Latter-day Saint the evidence seems pretty clear that there is a connection to the Book of Mormon. As an outside observer it will seem that Lincoln could have been influenced by spiritual sources that were present during the Civil War. Either way people of faith will see the hand of God in his decisions. I found it a very interesting read. I didn't give it five stars because Ballard's writing style sometimes bogged down my reading.

This book brings out things I have never even thought about before...
Connections made to our history that I have never put together before...

A puzzle!
A thought!
A hypothesis!

You will also identify pieces of evidence that cannot. I ask you to consider all the evidence and weight it accordingly.

Abraham Lincoln was president during a very difficult time not only for our country, but personally too.

He had lost a son...the country had lost thousands during the civil war.

President Lincoln found himself being humbled...

"The Lincoln Hypothesis reveals documented evidence that Abraham Lincoln did, in fact, check out the Book of Mormon as he struggled with making some of the most critical decisions of his presidency. Did he read it? Did it influence him? Was the Book of Mormon a key factor in Lincoln's success and the healing of a nation?"

Interesting facts are brought to light...
Great stories are told...
Patterns are given showing the unfolding of prophecies...

SOME INTRIGUING THINGS TO THINK ABOUT!
YOU WILL NEVER LOOK AT THIS TIME IN HISTORY THE SAME AGAIN!

THIS BOOK IS DEFINITELY WORTH READING! ( )
