A bit too Jesus-y for me, but that's sort of the point. This is about morals from a religious standpoint since Carter is a "man of faith," but he is not a conservative man & he believes in a true separation of church & state. He believes that fundamentalism in government has been detrimental to the health of our nation. My dad wanted me to read this book, which I admit made me a little panicky (is he finding Jesus all of a sudden?? I was raised with a complete lack of religion or spirituality, by people who regard organized religion as a problem not a solution & would refer to themselves as agnostic if not atheist), but I gave it a shot. I can't get on the Jesus train, but I can definitely get on board with many of the points Carter makes.
This is a quick, simple read for the masses.
