President Carter has written importantly about his spiritual life and faith. In this book, he offers a personal consideration of "moral values" as they relate to the important issues of the day. He puts forward a passionate defense of separation of church and state, and a strong warning of where the country is heading as the lines between politics and rigid religious fundamentalism are blurred. He reacts to some trends involving both the religious and the political worlds as they have increasingly become intertwined, and including some of the most crucial and controversial issues of the day--frequently encapsulated under "moral values." They include preemptive war, women's rights, terrorism, civil liberties, homosexuality, abortion, the death penalty, science and religion, environmental degradation, nuclear arsenals, America's global image, fundamentalism, and the melding of religion and politics. Sustained by his faith, Carter assesses these issues in a forceful and unequivocal but balanced and courageous way.--From publisher description.… (mer)

I found myself substantially agreeing with nearly all of Carter's analysis and prescriptions for the issues discussed. There are nits to pick, of course. For me personally, the biggest was a failure to discuss the vast potential for active transportation to affect the crises of climate change, oil dependence, and poverty. But that aside, the book made me appreciate the challenges of his presidency and his decisions as president, as well as the work he's engaged in since. Without a doubt, he's been one of our most accomplished ex-presidents, positively effecting countless lives through his foundation, his public service, and the inspiration of his character. It certainly would be interesting to read Carter's analysis of the Obama and Trump administrations through the lens of morality and values. ( )

Jimmy Carter is one of the finest, most honest politicians and presidents the U.S. has elected, as well as being one of the most intelligent, religious and well educated, and his insights, evaluations, warnings and frustrations are all laid bare here.

One of the things that struck me is the continued timeliness of the book despite having been published in 2005. His analysis of the Middle East situation is "spot-on" and his concerns for the long term thoughtlessness and selfishness of U.S. political decisions are prophetic after eleven years. Statistics and information are well documented.

This book should be a "must read" regardless of one's political philosophy. ( )

Gracefully written, this book explains how many of the changes in American policy are responsible for today's economic, social, and political issues at home and abroad. An important book for everyone to read. ( )

Perhaps the greatest ex-president of all time (I know, Harding never got the chance), it's a good look at his mid-2000s assessment of the moral issues facing the country. As an admittedly non-religious person, it's interesting to see the perspective of a lifelong devout Christian. ( )
