Faith: A Journey For All Audiobook

Faith: A Journey For All

Author: Jimmy Carter, Jimmy Carter Narrator: Jimmy Carter, Jimmy Carter Release Date: March 2018

In this powerful reflection, President Jimmy Carter contemplates how faith has sustained him in happiness and disappointment. He considers how we may find it in our own lives. All his life, President Jimmy Carter has been a courageous exemplar of faith. Now he shares the lessons he learned. He writes, "The issue of faith arises in almost every area of human existence, so it is important to understand its multiple meanings. In this book, my primary goal is to explore the broader meaning of faith, its far-reaching effect on our lives, and its relationship to past, present, and future events in America and around the world. The religious aspects of faith are also covered, since this is how the word is most often used, and I have included a description of the ways my faith has guided and sustained me, as well as how it has challenged and driven me to seek a closer and better relationship with people and with God." As President Carter examines faith's many meanings, he describes how to accept it, live it, how to doubt and find faith again. A serious and moving reflection from one of America's most admired and respected citizens.

A Full Life: Reflections at Ninety Audiobook

A Full Life: Reflections at Ninety

Author: Jimmy Carter, Jimmy Carter Narrator: Jimmy Carter, Jimmy Carter Release Date: July 2015

At 90, Jimmy Carter reflects on his public and private life with a frankness that is disarming. He adds detail and emotion, for example, about his youth in rural Georgia that he described in his magnificent An Hour Before Daylight. He writes about racism and the isolation of the Carters. He describes the brutality of the hazing regimen at Annapolis, how he nearly lost his life twice serving on submarines. He tells how he beat the odds and got Admiral Rickover to accept him for the brand new nuclear submarine program by admitting: "No sir, I did not always do my best [in Annapolis]." He also describes the profound influence his mother had on him but how he adored his father even though he didn't emulate him. He admits that he both decided to quit the Navy and subsequently enter politics without consulting his wife and how appalled he is, in retrospect, at that behavior, how angry Rosalynn was and how she became his crucial partner. Carter tells what he is proud of in his terms as governor and as president, and what he would do differently. And he talks very frankly of other world and political leaders. He talks about his regret leaving the White House after he lost but how he and Rosalynn pushed on and made a new life and second career. He is frank about the presidents who have succeeded him and how they have treated him and is passionate about the causes he cares most about, particularly the condition of women and the deprived of the developing world. This is frank and wise and a moving look back from this extraordinary man. He was president for four of his 90 years. Of course that changed his life. But other things did too. Carter has lived one of our great American lives, from rural obscurity to world fame and respect, and privilege. And he is rigorous and energetic as he looks back clearly on his extraordinary life. And he is not afraid to tell us where he fell short, or at least short of where he imagined.

A Call to Action: Women, Religion, Violence, and Power Audiobook

A Call to Action: Women, Religion, Violence, and Power

Author: Jimmy Carter, Jimmy Carter Narrator: Jimmy Carter, Jimmy Carter Release Date: March 2014

The world’s discrimination and violence against women and girls is the most serious, pervasive, and ignored violation of basic human rights: This is President Jimmy Carter’s call to action. President Carter was encouraged to write this book by a wide coalition of leaders of all faiths. His urgent report covers a system of discrimination that extends to every nation. Women are deprived of equal opportunity in wealthier nations and “owned” by men in others, forced to suffer servitude, child marriage, and genital cutting. The most vulnerable, along with their children, are trapped in war and violence. A Call to Action addresses the suffering inflicted upon women by a false interpretation of carefully selected religious texts and a growing tolerance of violence and warfare. Key verses are often omitted or quoted out of context by male religious leaders to exalt the status of men and exclude women. And in nations that accept or even glorify violence, this perceived inequality becomes the basis for abuse. President Carter and his wife, Rosalynn, have visited 145 countries, and The Carter Center has had active projects in more than half of them. Around the world, they have seen inequality rising rapidly with each passing decade. This is true in both rich and poor countries, and among the citizens within them. Carter draws upon his own experiences and the testimony of courageous women from all regions and all major religions to demonstrate that women around the world, more than half of all human beings, are being denied equal rights. This is an informed and passionate charge about a devastating effect on economic prosperity and unconscionable human suffering. It affects us all.

White House Diary Audiobook

White House Diary

Author: Jimmy Carter, Jimmy Carter Narrator: Boyd Gaines, Jimmy Carter, Jimmy Carter Release Date: September 2010

The edited, annotated diary of President Jimmy Carter-filled with insights into his presidency, his relationships with friends and foes, and his lasting impact on issues that still preoccupy America and the world Each day during his presidency, Jimmy Carter made several entries in a private diary, recording his thoughts, impressions, delights, and frustrations. He offered unvarnished assessments of cabinet members, congressmen, and foreign leaders; he narrated the progress of secret negotiations such as those that led to the Camp David Accords. When his four-year term came to an end in early 1981, the diary amounted to more than five thousand pages. But this extraordinary document has never been made public-until now. By carefully selecting the most illuminating and relevant entries, Carter has provided us with an astonishingly intimate view of his presidency. Day by day, we see his forceful advocacy for nuclear containment, sustainable energy, human rights, and peace in the Middle East. We witness his interactions with such complex personalities as Ted Kennedy, Henry Kissinger, Joe Biden, Anwar Sadat, and Menachem Begin. We get the inside story of his so-called "malaise speech," his bruising battle for the 1980 Democratic nomination, and the Iranian hostage crisis. Remarkably, we also get Carter's retrospective comments on these topics and more: thirty years after the fact, he has annotated the diary with his candid reflections on the people and events that shaped his presidency, and on the many lessons learned. Carter is now widely seen as one of the truly wise men of our time. Offering an unprecedented look at both the man and his tenure, this fascinating book will stand as a unique contribution to the history of the American presidency.

We Can Have Peace in the Holy Land Audiobook

We Can Have Peace in the Holy Land

Author: Jimmy Carter, Jimmy Carter Narrator: Jimmy Carter, Jimmy Carter Release Date: January 2009

In this urgent, balanced, and passionate book, Nobel Peace Laureate and former President Jimmy Carter argues that the present moment is a unique time for achieving peace in the Middle East -- and he offers a bold and comprehensive plan to do just that. President Carter has been a student of the biblical Holy Land all his life. For the last three decades, as president of the United States and as founder of The Carter Center, he has studied the complex and interrelated issues of the region's conflicts and has been actively involved in reconciling them. He knows the leaders of all factions in the region who will need to play key roles, and he sees encouraging signs among them. Carter describes the history of previous peace efforts and why they fell short. He argues persuasively that the road to a peace agreement is now open and that it has broad international and regional support. Most of all, since there will be no progress without courageous and sustained U.S. leadership, he says the time for progress is now. President Barack Obama is committed to a personal effort to exert that leadership, starting early in his administration. This is President Carter's call for action, and he lays out a practical and doable path to peace. **Please contact member services for additional documents.**

A Remarkable Mother Audiobook

A Remarkable Mother

Author: Jimmy Carter, Jimmy Carter Narrator: Jimmy Carter, Jimmy Carter Release Date: April 2008

A Remarkable Mother is President Carter's loving, admiring, wry homage to Miss Lillian Carter, who championed the underdog always, even when her son was president. A registered nurse, pecan grower, university housemother, Peace Corps volunteer, public speaker, and renowned raconteur, Miss Lillian ignored the mores and prejudices of the racially segregated South of the Great Depression years. She was an avid supporter of the Brooklyn Dodgers (because she happened to attend the first major league baseball game in which Jackie Robinson, from Cairo, Georgia, played), was a favored guest on television talk shows (usually able to "steal the microphone" from hosts such as Johnny Carson and Walter Cronkite), and an important role model for the nation. Jimmy Carter's mother emerges from this portrait as redoubtable, generous, and forward-looking. He ascribes to her the inspiration for his own life's work of commitment and faith.

Beyond the White House: Waging Peace, Fighting Disease, Building Hope Audiobook

Beyond the White House: Waging Peace, Fighting Disease, Building Hope

Author: Jimmy Carter, Jimmy Carter Narrator: Jimmy Carter, Jimmy Carter Release Date: October 2007

immy Carter has lived the most admired and productive post-presidency in the nation's history. Through The Carter Center, which he and Rosalynn Carter founded in 1982, President Carter has fought neglected diseases, waged peace in war zones, and built hope among some of the most forgotten and needy people in the world. Serving in more than seventy nations, he has led peacekeeping efforts for Ethiopia, North Korea, Haiti, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Uganda and Sudan. With his colleagues from The Carter Center, he has monitored more than sixty-five elections in troubled nations, from Palestine to Indonesia. Carter's bold initiatives, undertaken with dedicated colleagues, have eliminated, prevented, or cured an array of diseases that have been characterized as "neglected" by WHO and that afflict tens of millions of people unnecessarily. The Carter Center has taught millions of African families how to increase the production of food grains, while Rosalynn Carter has led a vigorous war against the stigma of mental illness around the world, which she describes on the audio. "Immersing ourselves among these deprived and suffering people has been a great blessing as it stretched our minds and hearts," Carter writes. This is the story of his post-presidency.

Palestine Peace Not Apartheid Audiobook

Palestine Peace Not Apartheid

Author: Jimmy Carter, Jimmy Carter Narrator: Jimmy Carter, Jimmy Carter Release Date: November 2006

Following his #1 New York Times bestseller, Our Endangered Values, the former president and winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, offers an assessment of what must be done to bring permanent peace to Israel with dignity and justice to Palestine. President Carter, who was able to negotiate peace between Israel and Egypt, has remained deeply involved in Middle East affairs since leaving the White House. Now he shares his intimate knowledge of the history of the Middle East and his personal experiences with the major players from all sides in the conflict, and addresses sensitive political issues many American officials avoid. Pulling no punches, Carter prescribes steps that must be taken for the two states to share the Holy Land without a system of apartheid or the constant fear of terrorism. The general parameters of a long-term, two-state agreement are well known, the president says. There will be no substantive and permanent peace for any people in this troubled region as long as Israel is violating key U.N. resolutions, official American policy and the international "road map" for peace by occupying Arab lands and oppressing the Palestinians. ****Please contact member services for additional documents****

Our Endangered Values: America's Moral Crisis Audiobook

Our Endangered Values: America's Moral Crisis

Author: Jimmy Carter, Jimmy Carter Narrator: Jimmy Carter, Jimmy Carter Release Date: November 2005

In Our Endangered Values, Jimmy Carter offers a personal consideration of "moral values" as they relate to the important issues of the day. He puts forward a passionate defense of separation of church and state, and a strong warning about where the country is heading as the lines between politics and rigid religious fundamentalism are blurred. Carter describes his reactions to recent disturbing societal trends that involve both religious and political worlds as they increasingly intertwine and include some of the most crucial and controversial issues of the day. Many of these matters are under fierce debate. They include preemptive war, women's rights, terrorism, civil liberties, homosexuality, abortion, the death penalty, science and religion, environmental degradation, nuclear arsenals, America's global image, fundamentalism, and the melding of religion and politics. Sustained by his lifelong faith, Jimmy Carter assesses these issues in a balanced and courageous way.

He describes how he learned to share life with his wife, Rosalynn, to grant each other personal space, and to compete with her on the tennis court, high mountains, trout streams, and ski slopes. These lifetime experiences can be an inspirational guide to anyone desiring to stretch mind and heart, and to combine work and pleasure.

Christmas In Plains: Memories Audiobook

Christmas In Plains: Memories

Author: Jimmy Carter, Jimmy Carter Narrator: Jimmy Carter, Jimmy Carter Release Date: October 2001

Jimmy Carter remembers Christmas in Plains -- a source of spiritual inspiration, respite, family ties, friendship, vacation fun, and the simplicity of community. In a beautifully rendered portrait of very special Christmases, Carter begins by returning to his early years in Plains. With only one exception in the following 48 years, the Carters have always been in Plains on Christmas Day. In 1980, with Americans held hostage in Iran, Jimmy, Rosalynn, and Amy went by themselves to Camp David and felt lonely. At Amy's suggestion, they invited the White House staff and their families to join them and created their own version of Christmas in Plains. Jimmy Carter has written another American classic in the tradition of Truman Capote's A Christmas Memory and Dylan Thomas' A Child's Christmas in Wales.
