Jimmy Carter has been teaching Sunday school since he was a young midshipman at the U.S. Naval Academy, leading bible study for officers... children. For the last 25 years, President Carter has taught at his home church in Plains, where his adult bible class is attended by several hundred visitors each week. Representing a wide range of faiths and denominations, they come from around the world to join President Carter in a common goal... 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.
Bringing Peace to a Changing World, the third volume in the series, presents four classes that President Carter taught on the book of Isaiah in December 2001. Speaking during a holiday season of global unrest and uncertainty, President Carter explores the historical and contemporary resonances of Isaiah's prophecies, leading up to Isaiah's vision of the Prince of Peace whose birth is celebrated at Christmas. Sharing personal insights into the global peace process, President Carter not only conveys the urgency of pursuing the peace prophesized by Isaiah, but also offers inspiring examples of how individuals can put these ideals into practice in their daily lives.
An inspiring and timeless addition to the Sunday Mornings series, Bringing Peace to a Changing World makes dramatically clear once more why Jimmy Carter can speak to a broad audience on issues of society and spirit like nobody else.
