As a journalist covering religion in America over three decades, I reported on the rise of the devotional Bible in the 1980s and 1990s as publishers' doors burst with special editions of Holy Writ containing additional inspirational texts aimed at women, men, youth, then pregnant women, sportsmen and other specialized niches. A few years ago, a Golfer's Bible even showed up with a ball and clubs on the cover. I understand the underlying importance of these books: Repeated studies have shown that most American households own a Bible, most Bible owners have more than one edition and most Americans think of themselves as regular Bible readers, whether we are or not.

Why have we seen such a flood of inspirational niche Bibles? Beyond offering fresh translations that try to make the words as clear as possible and after all of the "study helps" have been added, publishers wonder: How can we encourage more people to actually open the Bible and read it? Their answer is to sprinkle the writing of truly compelling authors from the modern era throughout the pages of these ancient texts. The idea is that the additional notes will help readers see the contemporary relevance of scripture. However, these days, finding truly memorable devotional Bibles in the overall ocean of offerings is a challenge. Currently, as I review the Carter Bible, I am also recommending two other recent Bibles in this genre: In 2010,

Please people, these are the personal reflections of an open minded good Christian man. Excellent and thoughtfully written. Not "preachy" in presentation. Thank God for gracing us with the gift of free thought and reflectiion.

There are many study bibles. Jimmy Carter has a scientific mind, as indicated by his advanced degree in nuclear physics from the Naval Academy. His faith in Christ and his knowledge of science are not in conflict within his thought processes. I am particularly interested in studying this book more, as I know Jimmy Carter has evinced a life of humility and care for others over self.

What could be better than a combination of the Bible, a series of Bible study summaries from a wise and spiritual man as sort of a "guided tour" of the Bible (complete with many lessons for living in the Word), and a series of favorite verses? An incredible book!

I associate Jimmy Carter with world history and Egypt and Israel Peace talks. Camp David is a an amazing story--but I had never seen him as a Bible teacher. I had no idea he had so many things to say and his view on the world is so interesting. I'm so grateful for this new perspective.

Format: Hardcover
This is an excellent work with commentary from President Carter's well lived life of considerable experience. It also provides an excellent alternative to the oft corrupted faith, as practice by the intolerant type of right-wing politico-Christian.

Highly recommend!

Format: Hardcover
Jimmy Carter has been teaching Sunday school all of his adulthood, even as Governor of Georgia and President of the Unites States. The difficult decisions he had to make while in office, whether about caring for the poor, finding peace in the Middle East, fighting an enemy, advancing human rights or reversing nuclear proliferation, were all influenced "by his deeply-held belief in the Bible."

After returning to private life, Carter not only resumed hosting Sunday school classes in his hometown of Plains, but he remained "an outspoken advocate of the poor and disadvantaged." And as a committed Christian, he has endeavored to follow Jesus' example of attending to the least of his brethren by devoting his blood, sweat and tears to a variety of worthy causes.

If you're interested in understanding the source of Jimmy Carter's inspiration and abiding faith, you might want to invest in this special edition of the New International Bible which highlights selected Scriptures, and is supplemented throughout by a life's worth of his favorite lessons, reflections and prayers.
