Gettysburg Gospel – Religious Imagery in Political Speech

Former PBA professor of History Richard Gamble gave an interview with Tom Woods October 31, 2014. Richard talks about his new article, Gettysburg Gospel, discussing the religious language in the Gettysburg Address.  Richard also published a book on religious language in political rhetoric, called In Search of the City on a Hill.

Richard ran the Faculty Summer Colloquia at PBA, and I miss his insights and perspective. Richard was very good at integrating history with the literature and art of the time.  I have incorporated some of what I learned from him into the DNP course, Faith and Science.
