Jimmy Carter is a man of faith – someone who demonstrates his trust in and fidelity to ideas and obligations. In this engaging, hopeful book, Carter examines the multiple meanings, aspects and implications of faith. This fast read distills the thoughts of an inquisitive man who loves to learn, who thinks deeply and kindly, and encourages others to do the same. Carter deftly incorporates stories that illustrate family and community commitments and larger faith-based implications for topics such as climate change, dictatorships, firearms, incarceration, human rights and income disparity. Carter uses his Christianity as a basis for many examples, but his treatise – like faith – is not inherently religious. Carter highlights how he came to see that science and religion aren’t in conflict. Much of the book draws on his 90-plus years of personal experience. Readers who want to strengthen their commitments to friends, family and community will appreciate Carter’s thought-provoking reflections.
