Make it easy on yourself, read Living Faith in Large Print * All Random House Large Print Editions are published in a 16-point type 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.… (mer)

I have a lot of respect for President Jimmy Carter, more for his continuing efforts towards world peace and his work with Habitat for Humanity than for anything else. I knew that he was a Christian, but I didn't really know much about his beliefs or his life. So I was pleased to find this audiobook in the library book sale.

While we don't share all the same beliefs, I really found so much to admire about Carter in this book. He hasn't always had an easy path in life. He talks about his decision to leave the Navy and his struggles in his early marriage. He also talks about his public life. It was fun to get an insider's look at what was going on.

My favorite line from the book is something another Christian said to him once. "In this life, you only have to love two people. One is God, and the other is the person in front of you."

I really enjoyed this. It was only one tape, so it was a very brief story, but I would recommend it. ( )

A book of personal faith drawn from the Bible and personal experiences would not normally be my cup of tea, but this is by Jimmy Carter, the living ex-president I most admire (actually, the ONLY living ex-pres I admire), and it was a chance to meet him and get his book signed. So what the heck. And actually it was a pretty good book. It's personal, with interesting stories and musings, and occasionally a good lesson. It didn't suck. I bet you couldn't say the same thing about any book Tricky Dick ever wrote. ( )
