Publisher's Summary

Jimmy Carter has been teaching Sunday school ever since he was a young midshipman in Annapolis; in later years he conducted religious services on submarines on which he served, and he even led the occasional class in Washington while he was president. For the last 25 years, President Carter has taught the adult Bible study at his church in Plains, where several hundred visitors join him each Sunday to understand the wisdom of the Bible and apply it to their lives. Leading a Worthy Life presents the four classes President Carter taught in January 1998 on the Book of Ephesians. Describing basic tenets of Christian living that still resonate today, Paul urges us "to lead a life worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, making every effort to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace." (Ephesians 4:1-3)
As he speaks to the theme of reconciliation with God and with each other that runs through all four lessons, President Carter connects Paul's message to the concerns of our time, including such relevant issues as fundamentalism and disunity in the church, and shares insights into practical applications of faith in daily life that will challenge and inspire.
The man from Plains: don't miss Volume 2 in this series, Measuring Our Success, and Volume 3, Bringing Peace to a Changing World.

Critic Reviews

"Carter's unscripted and intimate discourse marks an auspicious beginning to a project that holds tremendous potential for bringing practical issues of faith into the public arena." (Publishers Weekly)
"In his familiar voice, President Jimmy Carter speaks in clear, even tones on the New Testament Book of Ephesians....The lessons are augmented by examples from Carter's personal life....Carter uses subtle, light humor throughout and each class begins and ends with prayer and music. (AudioFile)
