"In this personal memoir of faith Jimmy Carter tells how his religious convictions have always led him down the demanding yet rewarding path of service to others. With honesty and economy of words, he details his own struggles and doubts with faith, family, and career. As he tells the stories of his political travails, his marital squabbles, his frustration with the takeover of the Southern Baptist Church by narrow fundamentalists, and his recent diplomatic feats, the reader sees how he has striven (sometimes belatedly) to take each step with faith in God as well as with a pragmatic, humanitarian zeal. Carter's accomplishments on local, national, and international scales are an inspiration to everyone who agrees that religious belief is a call to love all people and to aid those in need." 257 pages.
