The Theological Dimensions of the Gettysburg Address

Standard

Thomas Kidd has a great, brief piece about the theological dimensions of Pres Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address: http://www.patheos.com/blogs/anxiousbench/2013/11/a-new-birth-of-freedom-the-gettysburg-address/

Pres Obama’s handling of the Gettysburg 150th anniversary observance–deciding not to appear, even though most previous Presidents appeared, choosing to read a version of the speech that did not include the words “under God”–makes Dr Kidd’s observations even more interesting.
