It is increasingly difficult to keep issues of religion and government separate, as even the purely religious issues are routinely addressed by politicians-and vice versa. I have confronted the separation of government and religion from both directions. I have read every one of Jimmy Carter's books and completed this latest one in one day. In this book, he writes about the general use of the word "faith" and gives examples of faith in his personal life.

Memoirs Of A President.

Jimmy Carter is a great President. He has inspired me to look for peace. I enjoy his honesty about his background and historical references to his viewpoint on the Presidency.

Jimmy Carter's "Keeping Faith" was actually fairly good. I was not holding the book up to a high standard since President Carter was never the most articulate person, but the book was concise and easy to follow. Unlike many presidential memoirs (for example Ford and Reagan), Carter's book follows only his presidency. He does not start out in childhood or cover his governorship of Georgia. The book goes into exquisite detail about the Camp David Accords of which Carter certainly deserves recognition as one of the great peacemakers (or at least attempts) in history.

Perhaps one of the most surprising aspects of this book is that Carter was certainly not as liberal as many of his opponents or followers claim he was. He was driven by aspects of human rights and was certainly liberal in many views, but what is surprising is that many of the things Reagan gets credit/blame for were initially started by Carter. Carter pushed heavily for a balanced budget, purposed to cut taxes, wanted to strengthen military spending and deregulated the airlines, railroads, trucking and banks. He was certainly not afraid to go to war when the situation demanded it. He issued registration for the draft in 1980 when the Soviets invaded Afghanistan for instance.

The book interestingly portrays his faults just as well as his gains albeit indirectly. He spends virtually no time in the book dealing with inflation and high interest rates. His presidency was marked by the worst "misery" index in US history and serious financial difficulties. In addition the book is written in 1982 at the low of the Reagan presidency during one of the worst recessions in post World War history (an example of how bad the recession was the difference between potential GDP and actual GDP was over 1% greater than the low during the 2007-2009 recession). Therefore Carter is able to defend himself in the view of the American public with greater firepower.

The Carter of this book seems to be somewhat of a mixed bag between old and new. He tried the same old tactics with the Soviet Union and failed versus Reagan who largely succeeded. He looked at economic health as dependent on unemployment passing laws that created millions of jobs but fueled inflation (at one point in the book he said that economy was not too bad: unemployment was "only" 7% and inflation was "only" 7%), the root cause of the problems, to record heights unlike Reagan who viewed inflation a scourge of which Reagan's economic policies were a direct response and largely succeeded (to Carter's credit however he did appoint Paul Volcker, an anti-inflation hawk to the Federal Reserve. However it was too little too late for his presidency, one can make the comparison between George W Bush and TARP). He viewed OPEC oil as a problem yet tried to impose price controls leading to an artificial energy crisis with long gas lines and uneven distribution versus Reagan who eliminated gas lines with the stroke of a pen by lifting the price controls. Perhaps the greatest criticism I have of this book is his lack of acknowledgement of the seriousness of the problems. His view on the 1980 election was that Americans were mislead by the media (the media was very hard on him and Reagan) and Kennedy. However a defeat of that magnitude, not only rejecting him but the whole Democratic party, showed that people were looking for new ideas that Carter and his Democrats failed to show. Carter was certainly not at fault for many of the crises that occurred, but his inability to inspire faith in his leadership and inspire much needed reforms was often his doom.

Important memoirs for these times. There is much to learn from Carter's sense of humanity and he may be the
most underestimated of our modern presidents. Lessons from his politically courageous meeting at Camp
David would be enough to mentor heads of state and diplomats in the art of the "Chamber Music Principle"
for a new round of peace-making efforts. We are in great danger abroad and at home. Discussions have
broken down where and when needed for a host of critical topics.

Great book! President Carter will shine and be better noted by the generations to come. He was a man ahead of his time and a true Christian who put our nation's interest before his own political career. I strongly recommend this read for anyone interested in American/World political history.

I gave it to my mother and she loves it!! She just loves Jimmy and thinks he a godly man.

This book provides insight into the man. It is open and it feels human and honest. It is an interesting read particularly for those of us who lived through those years and, unfortunately, felt that he was inadaquate in the job. Now, upon reflection generated by his book, I have to question my world view of the time.
Great man, great book
