It took me FOREVER to get into this book. First, the narrator was so irritating and robotic that I kept falling asleep listening to the book. Second, I thought Abraham Lincoln: A Lifewas thorough. I think this author took writing lessons from Burlingame. There was details in this book that I was wondering what it had to do with Lincoln's religion. Then, something snapped as it all came together and it was that the author was painting a very clear picture into what went into Lincoln's religious beliefs and the incidents of what was influencing society during the 1800's. I learned SO MUCH from this book. I am happy I listened to it vs. reading it. I think it made key critical points stand out more than if I would have read them.
