Over three decades after serving as the President of the United States, 87-year-old Jimmy Carter remains busy. He is now writing two books for a Christian publisher, reflecting on his life and ministry.
Apart from leading America, Carter has also taught Sunday school classes for more than three decades. Coming from that experience, one of his books is titled Through the Year with Jimmy Carter: 366 Daily Meditations From the 39th President.
Zondervan, which has established a publishing partnership with the former president, will release the book in January 2012. With a daily devotional format, Carter’s book will share the personal stories and life lessons God has taught him when he taught Sunday school in Plains, Ga., and Washington, D.C.
Carter’s second book, New International Version Lessons From Life Bible: Personal Reflections with Jimmy Carter, is scheduled for release in March. It will feature the entire text of the NIV translation along with Carter’s personalized experiences, reflections, observations, and insights, including life lessons he’s learned throughout his walk with God and how he has applied the Word to his daily life.
Also part of the Zondervan’s agreement with the former Democratic president is a recently released biography of Carter’s life, Gift of Peace: The Jimmy Carter Story, authored by Elizabeth Raum. The biography is meant for children
