RE: Lincoln's Christianity by Michael Burkhimer
Gene - I 100% agree with you. Well worded. My point was just that the question of his "Christianity" (not religiousness) is a matter of definition and modification of the original meaning and concept of "Christian".

I think Mary's assessment as for her husband being "not a technical Christian" and "not in the common sense of the word(s)" is probably appropriate. She also said "he was a religious man", and that he was, no doubt. But a Christian from the strict theological (scholarly/"scientific") point of view and definition?

Is Mr. Burkhimer a theologist? How does he define "Christianity"? What parameters has he fixed for his examination for the application of this feature/attribute?
