Synopsis: Former President Jimmy Carter has won the respect and affection of millions for his long career as a humanitarian, a peacemaker, and a model of faith in action. The Sunday school classes he leads at his hometown church in Plains, Georgia, are legendary. "These weekly sessions . . . are remarkable for the ability of regular folks to walk in, grab a seat, and exchange views with the thirty-ninth president of the United States," says The New York Times. "But they are also remarkable for what Mr. Carter has to say."
For Sources of Strength, President Carter has culled fifty-two of his favorite Bible lessons--one for each week of the year--from the fifteen hundred or so he has taught over the decades. A thoughtful and inspiring book, Sources of Strength captured the heart of the country when it was published in hardcover, and became an immediate national bestseller. Now available in paperback, it can be enjoyed on its own or as the companion volume to Carter's bestselling spiritual autobiography, Living Faith. Jimmy Carter was president of the United States from 1977 to 1981. He is the author of thirteen other books, including Always a Reckoning, The Virtues of Aging, and Living Faith. In 1982 he founded the Carter Center, a nonprofit and nonpartisan organization in Atlanta that addresses national and international issues of public policy. Carter and his wife, Rosalynn, live in Plains, Georgia.
From the Trade Paperback edition.

From the Publisher: "In this rich and very intimate spiritual autobiography, the former president shares his living Christian faith...With engaging humor and self-effacement, Carter shares his personal stories of the lessons of faith he has learned as a son, husband, and father."
--Publisher's Weekly

"Former president Jimmy Carter writes with compelling honesty about his mistakes, his challenges, and his faith."
--U.S. News & World Report

"An unforgettable, spiritual autobiography filled with wisdom and pleas for justice...Carter's life is best summarized by the title of one of his chapters: Faith in Action."
--Kirkus Reviews

"A readable, remarkable book."
--Atlanta Journal Constitution

"Radiant with humility, compassion, and quiet strength, not to mention a sure knowledge of Scripture and how to cite it, this book continues Carter's witness beautifully and movingly."
--Booklist

Audio Book Review

"In the beautifully read Living Faith, former president Jimmy Carter explains his deep belief in God...Neither preachy nor predictable, this tape will have listeners hitting the rewind button to more fully grasp Carter's words and thoughts on spirituality."
