A biographer of Abraham Lincoln says that Lincoln knew the Bible almost by heart. In the book, Mr. Lincoln by J.G. Randall, we read: “There was not a clergyman to be found so familiar with it as he. There is scarcely a speech or paper prepared by him from 1834 to 1865, but contains apt allusions and stirring illustrations from the sacred book.” In fact, it is said that when Lincoln saw a misquotation from the Bible, he would correct it and write down the chapter and verse where the exact words could be found.
