Description


President Jimmy Carter offers a passionate defense of separation of church and state. He warns that fundamentalists are deliberately blurring the lines between politics and religion.

As a believing Christian, Carter takes on issues that are under fierce debate -- women's rights, terrorism, homosexuality, civil liberties, abortion, the death penalty, science and religion, environmental degradation, nuclear arsenals, preemptive war, and America's global image.

Praise For…


"Our Endangered Values cannot be safely ignored."

-- The Wall Street Journal

"Carter offers an unusual combination: a man of faith and a man of power....By adding his own voice to the discussion, Carter reminds us of a time when religion was tied to such virtues as humility and such practices as soul-searching...he is undoubtedly one of our finest human beings."

-- Alan Wolfe, The Washington Post Book World

"The prolific former president writes eloquently about how his faith has shaped his moral vision."

-- The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

"Carter has come to the defense of our national values. We need a voice from the not-so-distant past, and this quiet voice strikes just the right notes."

-- Garry Wills, The New York Review of Books
