"This is an AudioBook about the values and experiences that have shaped my life, and how the religious beliefs I inherited have been transformed into a living faith" - Jimmy Carter1 cassette / 90 minutesRead by President Jimmy CarterFor three ...
For three decades, Jimmy Carter has regularly spent part of Sunday morning reading from Scripture and sharing his personal faith with neighbors, friends, and visitors at his Baptist church in Plains, Georgia. In Living Faith, he offers lessons for life from the Bible, personal experiences, and the examples of friends and family who have guided, challenged, and inspired him.
For President Carter, faith finds its deepest expression in a life of compassion, reconciliation, and service to others. Living Faith is filled with stories of people whose lives have touched his -- some from the world stage, more from modest walks of life. Living Faith is also a deeply personal account of the joys, heartbreaks, defeats, and achievements of President Carter's life as seen through the eyes of faith. Here is his boyhood in Depression-era Plains, Georgia; his Navy years; the bittersweet days of misunderstanding and young love as he and his wife, Rosalynn, learned the deeper meanings of marriage; and their painful clashes with friends and neighbors over the bitter legacy of racial prejudice.
Through all these struggles, and through his later years of political triumph and acclaim as one of the world's most respected peacemakers, Christian belief has been President Carter's anchor and touchstone. In Living Faith, he shares more fully than ever before the personal meaning of his creed.
