Overview

Throughout his career as a statesman, Jimmy Carter has been guided by his Christian beliefs. The Carpenter's Apprentice explores his spiritual development, offering an intimate insight into the role his faith has played in both public service and private life. Through interviews with friends and family, The Carpenter's Apprentice explores the roots of Carter's faith and the way he lives out a genuine and down-to-earth Christianity today, including his childhood and family background, the presidential years, the historic 1979 Camp David Accords, his Sunday school teaching experiences, his marital partnership with Rosalynn, his work with Habitat for Humanity, the founding and philosophy of the Carter Center, his work as an international peacemaker, and the behind-the-scenes successes of his trip to North Korea. The Carpenter's Apprentice includes exclusive quotes, personal interviews, and never-before-published anecdotes, as well as a special section on what to see and do if you plan to visit Plains, Georgia. It also describes the unique ministry of Jimmy Carter's local church: how visitors from around the world are welcome and what it's like to hear the former President teach in Sunday school.
