In my neck of the woods in Ireland, my version of far-away people and events depends on the accuracy of reporting by others on the scene. Often, however,that reporting is skewed for one reason or another, and my view of Jimmy Carter was that purveyed by the world's media as a failed President who now occasionally surfaces on the world scene as a do-gooder. This book is a powerful corrective for me.

This is a great book and its author is touched with greatness in the mould of Sister Theresa and Mahatma Ghandi. I suspect the book will become a minor religious classic.

Jimmy Carter reveals himself as he is, faults and failings together. In a simple, effective style he discloses that he is a thoughtful man who tells his story with great humility and reveals the struggles and pain in his life as well as the triumphs. He is a man of considerable intellect who won't be restricted by the verges others want to cut for his life, whether religiously, racially or politically - he does his own thinking on all matters. Yet, he is also a courageous man who is prepared to stand alone, if need be,when he comes to settled conclusions on any issue, and to pay the price of that, if he has to. He is also a compassionate man who puts himself about in order to help the poor, disadvantaged and victims of injustice. However, above all else, he is a man of living faith, as the title suggests, seeking to understand the meaning and implications of Christian faith, honest in recognizing his past failures and attempting to remedy them in new expressions of his faith.

I do not read many "religious" books. However, I have a great admiration for President Carter because of his many, many selfless good deeds since leaving office. He is, in my opinion, one of the greatest American men of the second half of the twentieth century. What I truly liked about the book was realizing that this man, who I admire, wrestles with the same sort of spiritual/religious demons that I do. And I realized that he does not have any easy answers, but acknowledges that yes indeed life is often hard and there are many, many times when an honest person might be led to question the wisdom or indeed even the existence of God. In an era when there are so many pious, hypocritical political nitwits who cynically manipulate scripture and religion to further their own stupid, hateful prejudices and selfish political ends (and we all know who they are), President Carter's book - and indeed the beautiful example of his life - are incredibly welcome.

By A Customer on 6 Mar. 1997
Format: Hardcover
Two basic elements of his character stand out in this book by former President Jimmy Carter - his willingness to show us the stuff he's made of - warts and all, and his insistence on fairness in dealing with people. If he had a weakness while serving as President, it was that he expected Washington press and politicians to exhibit these character traits as well. Of course, they did not.

For me, Mr. Carter's accounts of his family life confirmed my belief that he has always been a man dedicated to his faith and public service. For him, the two are inseparable.

Mr. Carter's remarks about his brother Billy and Miss Lillian also show an appreciation for family and for the world that the press has overlooked. Therefore, we never knew about it, except for our personal observations.

I would like to thank President Carter for giving me the chance to more fully understand and appreciate him and what he stands for. May he have a long life and continued success.
