About The Book

GRAMMY AWARD-WINNER FOR BEST SPOKEN WORD ALBUM!

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.

Raves and Reviews

"Our Endangered Values cannot be safely ignored."

-- The Wall Street Journal

"This is a book of reason and tolerance but also of indignation. The former President draws on his religious faith to comment wisely on a wide range of 'hot button' issues. Although Carter's tone is patient and explanatory, his views are bound to be newsworthy and should rekindle some old fires...an eloquent personal testament that deserves a wide readership, regardless of political affiliation. Highly recommended."

-- Library Journal

"Carter offers an unusual combination: a man of faith and a man of power...By adding his own voice to the discussion, Carter reminds us of a time when religion was tied to such virtues as humility and such practices as soul-searching...he is undoubtedly one of our finest human beings."

-- Alan Wolfe, The Washington Post Book World

"Carter speaks eloquently of how his own faith has shaped his moral vision...makes resonant connections between religion and political activism..."

-- Publishers Weekly

"...Carter's overarching decency, his care for the human condition and the health of planet Earth shines through."

-- Kirkus
