President Jimmy Carter will publish a new work on faith, announced by Simon & Schuster on January 17, 2018. In FAITH: A Journey for All, to be published in March 2018, the former President contemplates how his faith has sustained him in happiness and disappointment, and how we may find it in our own lives as it shapes our belief in religious freedom, moral politics, and how we relate to one another.
“The issue of faith arises in almost every area of human existence,” said President Carter, “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.”
Alice Mayhew, Vice President and Editorial Director of the Simon & Schuster imprint, acquired U.S, Canada and Open Market publishing rights. President Carter was represented by Lynn Nesbit at Janklow & Nesbit Associates. The book will also be published in audiobook by Simon & Schuster Audio.
“In this important book, at a time of uncertainty,” said Mayhew, “President Jimmy Carter talks about the gift of Faith through the great modern theologians, some inspired contemporaries, and his lifelong acceptance of the challenge and reward.”
Jimmy Carter was the thirty-ninth President of the United States, serving from 1977 to 1981. In 1982, he and his wife founded The Carter Center, a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of people around the world. Carter was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2002. He is the author of thirty books, including A Full Life: Reflections at Ninety; A Call to Action: Women, Religion, Violence, and Power; An Hour Before Daylight: Memoirs of a Rural Boyhood; and Our Endangered Values: America’s Moral Crisis.
