If you could travel back in time and ask any deceased political figure (famous or infamous) a single question, who would you choose, and what would you ask?
I'm actually rather surprised by the number of "Abraham Lincoln" answers. I wish that Churchill got more inquiries than Hitler but humanities morbid curiosity comes as no surprise.
This question really reminds me that there is no ONE person that might be influential enough to change how history has occurred.
My answer is a lesser political figure. And as someone who isn't Christian it may seem odd.
The apostle Paul, who was the moving force in documenting Jesus' story in the New Testament. I would ask him if he would be shocked to know how his interpretation of Christ's story would affect so many in the future.
If I had a second shot it would be King James I to ask much the same question in terms of the Bible overall.
