Item Description...
For almost three decades, President Carter has regularly spent part of each Sunday reading from scripture and sharing his personal faith with neighbors, friends, and visitors at his Baptist church in Plains, Georgia. In Living Faith, he draws on this experience, exploring the values closest to his heart and the personal beliefs that have nurtured and sustained 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. We see how President Carter learned about other faiths from Prime Minister Menachim Begin and President Anwar Sadat; learned a lesson in forgiveness from a clash with commentator George Will; how he was inspired by the simple theology of preacher Ely Cruz, "Love God and the person in front of you"; and how the cheerful strength of family friend Annie Mae Rhodes taught him the meaning of "patient faith."
Rooted in scripture and infused with a vision of how a dynamic faith can enrich our public and private lives, this is the most personal book yet by one of our most admired Americans--a warmly inspirational volume to give and to share.

Spiritual autobiography that will help you better understand President Carter  Mar 13, 2008
Heard LIVING FAITH, a spiritual autobiography read and written by
President Jimmy Carter . . . it helped me understand this remarkable man
who has perhaps accomplished more since he left office--in large part
because of his religious beliefs.

You don't have to be Baptist, either, to enjoy this book . . . it contains
lessons from the Bible that apply to any faith, and you'll also enjoy
hearing about the many experiences, friends and family members who
have affected Carter's life.

For example, he credits Miss Judy Coleman (one of his former teachers)
for teaching him that "We must adjust to changing times, but hold
to unchanging principles."

And from a Pastor Cruz, he learned the following: "You only have
to have two loves in your life: 1. For God; and 2. For the person in front
of you at any particular point in time."

Lastly, I liked these guidelines he shared for praying: "When I pray,
I ask: Am I pursuing the right goals? Am I holding to my personal
code? And have I done my best?"

This was the first book I have read by President Carter . . . I'm now
tempted to seek out some others he have written, particularly
if I can hear his soothing voice do the narration.
Down to earth  Oct 7, 2007
A well written book that's easy to read. If you want to get a good understanding of why Carter took or didn't take certain actions while in office and the greater accomplishments he's made since, you'll enjoy the book. Learn about what makes Carter who he is.
My introduction to Jimmy  Apr 29, 2007
This was the first book I read writen By x president Jimmy Carter
I was one of you who didn't give him a second chance,(Because of all the yellow ribbons in my neighborhood,) Which in my case This book opened my eyes to what he was dealing with while in office.
GREAT BOOK to make you feel ashamed, If you like me were feeling pretty hawkish at the time HOSTAGES issues were all over the front page.
This man will be recorded as our biggest blunder not keeping him in office! If we want to be thought of as a great people insted of our current world wide profile
A Moving Memoir  May 3, 2005
I really appreciated Carter's description of his personal faith and his attempts to live and practice Christianity in today's world. I think progressive Christians will find this book speaks to them in their attempts to reconcile a very real faith with an outward-looking and inclusive world-view. Being engaged in left-wing causes does NOT require abandoning religious faith, and we need more men and women to assert that there IS a religious left, too. In fact, for many, religious faith is the inspiration that leads us into politics. I can't beileve a man this kind and sincere and gentle was ever president, it seems so bizarre considering today's realities.
A Gentle Man and a Gentleman  Jan 20, 2005
Former President Jimmy Carter is a truly outstanding person. He is very devoutly committed to his faith and he uses illustrations from his own life to affirm the faith that guides him.

Carter is indeed a humble peacemaker and this book is a sterling testament to faith, hope and living a good life. It is a book for everybody regardless of faith. It is a book about core values and internal beliefs. It is a book about the power of sharing.
