Review quote

"The speeches gathered in this important collection reveal the eloquence and wide-ranging interests of this significant and fascinating antislavery leader and member of Congress. A friend of Abraham Lincoln, Lovejoy gently prodded the president to move more quickly toward abolition during the Civil War. Accessible and readable, Lovejoy's speeches afford us a rare look at the intersection of religion and politics. They also reveal a breadth of learning rarely matched in his time or ours." -- Fred J. Blue, biographer of Salmon P. Chase and Charles Sumnershow more
