Living Faith by Jimmy CarterFor almost three decades, President Carter has regularly spent part of each Sunday reading from scripture and sharing his personal faith with neighbors, friends, and visitors at his Baptist church in Plains, Georgia. In Living Faith, he draws on this experience, exploring the values closest to his heart and the personal beliefs that have nurtured and sustained him.
For President Carter, faith finds its deepest expression in a life of compassion, reconciliation, and service to others. Living Faith is filled with stories of people whose lives have touched his--some from the world stage, more from modest walks of life. We see how President Carter learned about other faiths from Prime Minister Menachim Begin and President Anwar Sadat; learned a lesson in forgiveness from a clash with commentator George Will; how he was inspired by the simple theology of preacher Ely Cruz, Love God and the person in front of you; and how the cheerful strength of family friend Annie Mae Rhodes taught him the meaning of patient faith.
Rooted in scripture and infused with a vision of how a dynamic faith can enrich our public and private lives, this is the most personal book yet by one of our most admired Americans--a warmly inspirational volume to give and to share.

But President of the United States is likely the leading contender. It takes a lot of ego to assume you are the best man or someday woman to lead a continental nation now totaling more than million people, not to mention the largest economy and most potent military the world has ever known. The feeling of most who occupy the Oval Office is to save the reflection for the memoir - even then it rarely comes. And that's what makes an afternoon I spent at the White House in the late s so indelibly etched in my mind. This scene hit anew like a record shifting to play in an old jukebox when I heard the news of President Jimmy Carter's grave cancer diagnosis.
In Chicago, by contrast, the Democrats have gone out of their way to avoid even acknowledging the existence of their party's only living former President. It may look odd, but the absence of Jimmy Carter from the Democratic National Convention vividly illustrates just how little love is lost between him and President Clinton. That has been clear since , when candidate Clinton was consumed by fear of being labeled ''another Jimmy Carter,'' a rap the Republicans had pinned on Walter Mondale and Michael Dukakis with devastating results. Clinton insisted in an interview in It is a posture he has diligently maintained ever since.

When the FCC loosened the rules to allow media companies to own even more television stations, the public was outraged. The US Senate took the remarkable step of passing legislation to roll back the new rules, but months later the Republican leadership of the House refuses to bring it to a vote. While critics wonder why Congress is dragging its feet, NOW takes a look to see if backroom deals are giving Big Media more control than ever over what Americans see, hear, and read. Reverend Joseph Darby and Harris Raynor offer their views of the upcoming contest in South Carolina, how Democrats have lost their grip on key constituencies like African Americans, and what they can do to win back their edge in key southern states. Then, Bill Moyers talks to Dan T. Carter shares with Moyers his thoughts about the upcoming South Carolina primary and the impact that it has on the national presidential election. Once upon a time it was a plantation economy.
