Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For decades, President Jimmy Carter has been an avid student and teacher of the Bible.In recent years, the adult Sunday school classes he leads at his hometown Baptist church have become famous the world over.As The New York Times put it, "These weekly sessions...are remarkable for the ability of regular folks to walk in, grab a seat and exchange views with the 39th President of the United States.But they are also remarkable for what Mr. Carter has to say."

Now, this most admired American has selected fifty-two of his favorite Bible meditations from these Sunday gatherings to share with anyone who is searching for new faith...or fuller understanding of a lifelong creed.The result is this remarkable book, Sources of Strength: Meditations on Scripture for a Living Faith.

For Jimmy Carter, as for countless others, Holy Scripture has been a constant companion, a source of inspiration and strength in both good times and bad.A lifetime of devoted Bible reading has taught him that the truths of Scripture have the power to enrich and transform our daily lives in unexpected ways.As President Carter writes, "The Bible offers concrete guidance for overcoming our weaknesses and striving toward the transcendent life for which we were created."

Sources of Strength is Jimmy Carter's invitation to you to share in the spiritual bounty of Scripture and joyous, more fulfilling life that a living faith makes possible.

Also Available As An Audio Book

"I think the audio version brings a human touch..It permits me to communicate in a much more intimate fashion."

--President Jimmy Carter

From the Hardcover edition.
