Re: "Let's give full credit to Bill Herndon. He alone assembled a solid biography of Lincoln". I disagree, he glossed, too, but in the way that suited and served his personal beliefs, imagination, and bias. I hope you will read D. Donald's Herndon biography to learn something about Herndon's thinking and way to "make" his Lincoln works. Herndon himself was a staunch atheist and probably not capable of empathy (not only as for this topic), i.e. to relate to someone, the least someone so dear to him with whom he felt had shared this view, could change to a different mindset and develop faith.
While I have great respect for Herndon's efforts (also to put together a lot of legends) his conclusions IMO (and not only in mine) are questionable.
