In this powerful reflection, President Jimmy Carter contemplates how faith has sustained him in happiness and
disappointment. He considers how we may find it in our own lives.
All his life, President Jimmy Carter has been a courageous exemplar of faith. Now he shares the lessons he learned. He
writes, “The issue of faith arises in almost every area of human existence, so it is important to understand its
multiple meanings. In this book, my primary goal is to explore the broader meaning of faith, its far-reaching effect on
our lives, and its relationship to past, present, and future events in America and around the world. The religious
aspects of faith are also covered, since this is how the word is most often used, and I have included a description of
the ways my faith has guided and sustained me, as well as how it has challenged and driven me to seek a closer and
better relationship with people and with God.”
As President Carter examines faith’s many meanings, he describes how to accept it, live it, how to doubt and find faith
again. A serious and moving reflection from one of America’s most admired and respected citizens.
