Lincoln's confidant : the life of Noah Brooks by Wayne Calhoun Temple( )

7 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,001 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Acclaimed as one of the great Lincoln scholars, Wayne C. Temple offers the long-awaited first biography of Noah Brooks, the influential Illinois journalist who championed Abraham Lincoln in state politics and became his almost daily companion during the Civil War. Best remembered as one of the president's few true intimates, Brooks was also a nationally recognized man of letters who mingled with the likes of Mark Twain and Bret Harte. Temple draws on archives and papers long thought lost to re-create Brooks's colorful life and relationship with Lincoln. Brooks's closeness to the president made him privy to Lincoln's thoughts on everything from literature to spirituality. Their frank conversations contributed to the wealth of journalism and personal observations that still make Brooks a much-quoted source for biographers, historians, and Lincoln aficionados. A grand history and unparalleled scholarly resource, Lincoln's Confidant is the story of an extraordinary friendship by one of the giants of Lincoln scholarship."--Amazon.com

Abraham Lincoln, from skeptic to prophet by Wayne Calhoun Temple( Book )

4 editions published between 1995 and 2013 in English and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For many years, this author has sifted slowly through voluminous collections of primary source materials in order to tell the story of Abraham Lincoln's experience with religion. It has proved to be a most interesting but difficult quest, for Licoln lived an extremely complicated life and kept so many of his personal thoughts buried within his keen mind and refused to share them. Even so, it has been possible to uncover a number of important documents which have never been cited previously in a study of Lincoln's theological beliefs. In addition, Mary Todd's church affiliations have been searched out and described here, because this cultured Kentucky lady certainly exerted a tremendous influence upon her highly-inquisitive husband. Also, the church experiences of the Lincoln children have been examined in detail
