President-elect Barack Obama will use the same Bible at his inauguration that Abraham Lincoln used for his swearing in.

Obama will be the first president since Lincoln to use that Bible, part of the collection of the Library of Congress.

The head of the presidential inaugural committee, Emmett Beliveau, said Tuesday that Obama is "deeply honored" that the Library of Congress made the Lincoln Bible available to him.
