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. Sunday Mornings in Plains: Bible Study with Jimmy Carter gives listeners everywhere the opportunity to share in this remarkable experience. Drawing on an extensive archive of class recordings, each volume in this original series presents a complete month-long sequence of classes on a general theme or topic of enduring mainstream interest. Listeners will hear all the unscripted interaction and unexpected insights that keep these classes so lively, as well as the warmth, humor, and authority that make President Carter such a beloved and effective teacher.
President Carter has written that his classes share "a feeling of being part of a community of people trying together to make sense of our lives and our world", and each week he infuses his lessons with anecdotes from his own life and observations about world events, inviting listeners to join him in exploring the role of faith in the modern world for the individual and for society at large.
In Volume 2, Measuring Our Success, President Carter addresses the true measure of success in the eyes of God.
Featuring new material recorded exclusively by President Carter for Measuring Our Success, this second volume of Sunday Mornings in Plains demonstrates once more that this series is a unique and personal audio legacy from one of the most important voices of our time.
