GRAMMY AWARD-WINNER FOR BEST SPOKEN WORD ALBUM! In this powerful reflection, President Jimmy Carter contemplates how faith has sustained him in happiness and disappointment. He considers how we may find it in our own lives. All his life, President Jimmy Carter has been a courageous exemplar of faith. Now he shares the lessons he learned. He writes, "The issue of faith arises in almost every area of human existence, so it is important to understand its multiple meanings. In this book, my primary goal is to explore the broader meaning of faith, its far-reaching effect on our lives, and its relationship to past, present, and future events in America and around the world. The religious aspects of faith are also covered, since this is how the word is most often used, and I have included a description of the ways my faith has guided and sustained me, as well as how it has challenged and driven me to seek a closer and better relationship with people and with God." As President Carter examines faith's many meanings, he describes how to accept it, live it, how to doubt and find faith again. A serious and moving reflection from one of America's most admired and respected citizens.

"Have you ever wondered why a president of the United States made a particular decision, or what it is that drove him to engage in politics at the highest level? Jimmy Carter offers a seat at his kitchen table as he narrates his own work looking at his faith, which he points to as the driving force for everything he has done. Though not everyone will agree with his views, he is unapologetic for holding them. He expressively describes his desire to please the God he serves, while sharing his heartache over where he he feels he has failed and where he feels the church has failed him. To hear the aged voice of such a respected man is an experience no one should miss. T.D. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
