"Where was God in this brutal national war? An unbaptized non-churchgoer came up with a profound answer." by Mark A. Noll | CT, 1/01/1992
"The end of the Civil War in the spring of 1865 began a national discussion that has not stopped 125 years later. What did the war mean? What was its significance to the nation? More momentously, what was its significance to God?"
Whose side was God on? Lincoln recognized it was neither the Union nor the Confederate. God was and is and always has been on His own side; contra Beecher (Union) and contra Dabney (Confederate).
