Wilson, Woodrow (28th President) Van Dyke, Henry. THE GOSPEL FOR AN AGE OF DOUBT. NY: MacMillan, 1897. 457p. Signed by Woodrow Wilson on front flyleaf, “Henry F. Askew Jackson / Woodrow Wilson / 18 Nov. 1897” (inserted just below the Askew’s name is written, “from his Mother”).
A nice association involving Wilson’s religious beliefs. Wilson’s religious views were the driving force in his political career, informing his quest for world peace. His father was a theologian, so he had an upbringing steeped in religion, remaining deeply religious throughout his life. He was a frequent church-goer, and read the Bible regularly, especially toward the end of his life. “My life would not be worth living if it were not for the driving power of religion, for faith, pure and simple,” he said.
