PositiveThe New York Times Book ReviewThough Carter has only one life to live, he has umpteen memoirs to write. This new one, Faith, like the many former ones, is full of fond regurgitations of deeds accomplished, speeches given, poems written and op-eds published ... Carter has continued to monitor closely our militarism ... as we spend millions on these outposts, our own \'nfrastructure investment gap\' is the largest of the 50 richest nations. The United States has the highest level of incarceration...and \'our nation is the only one that has refused to ratify the international Convention on the Rights of the Child, primarily because it prohibits execution for crimes committed by children\' ... These incontrovertible but little-discussed facts will strike some as more of Carter’s prissy nagging. He rightly sees it, rather, as preaching — not mixing church and state but conscience and state ... I am heartened that he keeps on teaching his Bible classes in his 93rd year. He is still looking in the Bible for the mercy and love of God, and he helps me find them there.
