Living Faith is mainly about his views on how he lives his life according to his religious beliefs, with many passages about his childhood and adulthood, and of course thoughts on his years in the White House. He also writes about his relationship with his wife Rosalyn and their children, his relationship with his parents, and what he has been doing since he left the White House in 1980.
Although I am not a religious person, I was still able to enjoy this book because it gave me insight to Carter's character - a good hearted person who lives and has lived with good intentions and a purpose to help others. This book is a must-read for any one that is an admirer of Jimmy Carter.
Carter is indeed a humble peacemaker and this book is a sterling testament to faith, hope and living a good life. It is a book for everybody regardless of faith. It is a book about core values and internal beliefs. It is a book about the power of sharing.
Good: The stories from his life are inspiring, particularly of his work against racism in the south in the 60s and his current work in mediating international conflicts as part of the Carter Center. I also was touched by the "personal edge" that this book brings. Carter talks openly about his marriage, conflicts with his sons, his career changes, and personal discovery of God's leading for his life. It's powerful.
Bad: Occasionally he gives excessive focus to justifying some of his political situations in the 70s. But this is just a small fault....
Opinion: As someone who can identify both with Carter's political/social views and many of his spiritual understandings, I found it to be wonderful reading. In recent times the Bible has been widely misused by the political right to justify all sorts of heinious public policies, and those of us who differ have often been derided as less than Christian. In this context Carter's book is extremely refreshing. It's by far the most inspiring read of the year. The book is rather pricy, but well worth it in my opinion.
