Lincoln’s Calvinism sans Christ and sans redemption

As most of my recent writings (due to conditions outside my control) have been more aphoristic than discursive, readers looking for a more extended and challenging discussion may be interested in this entry from 2004: “Lincoln’s Calvinized Deism.” It’s an attempt to answer the question: how could Lincoln speak of good and evil, when he also held that everything that happens in the world, including evil things like slavery, are determined not by man’s choice but by Providence?
