From "The Prayers of Both Could Not be Answered"
Lincoln, a layman with no standing in a church and no formal training as a theologian, nonetheless offered a complex picture of God's rule over the world and a morally nuanced picture of American's destiny.
By contrast, most the country's recognized religious leaders offered a thin, simple view of God's providence and a morally juvenile view of the nation and its fate. -- Mark Noll
