    This is a great book of daily devotions. Through these Sunday school lessons of Jimmy Carter's we find depth in Scripture and a commonality with all people. Since the readings are not dated I feel free to spend extra time on a lesson that moves me. We hear homey stories and stories of great men and women. This is unlike any devotional I have ever encountered and I am grateful to have it in my library.

    Thoughtful devotions Most ex-presidents write their memoirs, cash in with speeches, and oversee the building of a library in their name. Jimmy Carter is different. He teaches Sunday school, serves as a deacon in his local church, and wrote this gem full of thoughtful devotions. It is hard to find devotional books with depth. I use this book for my own time with God, and enjoy it immensely. It shows the author's knowledge of the Bible and its background (evidenced in his enlightening explanations) Thoughtful devotions Most ex-presidents write their memoirs, cash in with speeches, and oversee the building of a library in their name.

    All US Presidents have professed to be Christian and some have gone to church with regularity. Carter offers a testimony of his own Christian faith here. His careful study of scripture and familiarity with twentieth century theologians is displayed here. I doubt any other President we have had in the last 100 years could write such a book. We see reflections of a man who has truly tried to live out his Christian faith both inside and outside of public office here.

    Daily meditations from the former president on different things in his life. One of people I admire and appreciated are some of the presidents. Carter is how a christian should act by example in life.

    Of course I enjoyed the religious aspect of this daily devotional, but I also enjoyed the personal tidbits thrown into the entries from my fellow Georgian.

    Closing the year out. Whatever your faith - this is an exceptional man of faith. The only President to bring it and carry it through his entire service. Altho faith has by hijacked by other politicians, Carter is as authentic as they come. A nice daily read.

    I like the thought of devotionals, but I rarely seem to commit to reading them all the way through. I got this one through the library, so I had it for just three weeks. I enjoyed what I read though.

    I bought this for myself because I love Jimmy Carter. But I really cannot get into it. The bible stories he expounds on just can't cut it for me the way the Baha'i writings do.

    I have great respect for Jimmy Carter...but this was a slog. Usually, of course, I finish a book of daily meditations in a year. This took almost 2 years! Each day is a short Bible verse which Carter comments on--usually bringing to bear some anecdote from his life. There was nothing particularly wrong with this, and some were fine. But in general Carter is (much) more theologically conservative than I am, and these meditations came off as too pious for my taste. I'm sure others would enjoy it m I have great respect for Jimmy Carter...but this was a slog. Usually, of course, I finish a book of daily meditations in a year. This took almost 2 years!

    Interesting daily reading book by Jimmy Carter based on notes he used for teaching 366 Sunday school classes AFTER he was President. Very strong Christian emphasis as expected. Most of the daily readings provide thoughtful challenges to living more effective lives. There is a strong emphasis on the equality of all people, which I particularly liked.
