Barack Obama to be sworn in using Lincoln's Bible

There is a great article written by Lincoln scholar, Ronald C. White, Jr., author of the recently released, A. Lincoln: A Biography, about how Barack Obama is consciously identifying himself with the presidency of Abraham Lincoln. Obama will even be sworn in using the same Bible Lincoln used during his first inauguration in 1861.

I purchased the book the other day, and very much look forward to reading it. White is also scheduled to speak at Fuller Seminary, and other seminaries later in the year.
