Abraham Lincoln: Lessons in Spiritual Leadership
In this classic work, Christian philosopher and statesman Elton Trueblood reveals how Lincoln's leadership skills flowed directly from his religious convictions - which explains how the president was able to combine what few leaders can hold together: moral resoluteness with a shrewd ability to compromise; confidence in his cause while refusing to succumb to the traps of self-righteousness or triumphalism; and a commitment to victory while never losing sight of his responsibility for--or the humanity of--his enemy. These rich meditations offer deep wisdom and insight on one of the most effective leaders of all time. Author: Elton Trueblood. Paperback; 192 pages.
