My mother in law, a self described liberal, for Christmas gave me this book. I just completed reading this book within the past 24 hours.
This book is a 2005 attack on the Southern Baptist Church; Carter has publicly and in the book has disavowed the church of his youth and adult life.
In the book on pg. 67 he states “One of my Christian heroes is Dr. Jimmy Allen, the last moderate president of the Southern Baptist Convention.”
This explains his assault on fundamentalism, conservatives, Christian Conservatives and the like.
His book details, in his mind, all his successes from 1980-1984 as President and how the present occupants in Congress and the White House have ruined all he established as President. Carter is proud to point that not one individual’s blood was shed during war while he was President. He conveniently forgets to mention that we had hostages held in Iran while he cowered in the White House. His only attempt to rescue the hostages was a botched helicopter crash in a sand storm.
Carter is concerned about the energy crisis and what he perceives as a deficit with Republicans on energy. He forgets about the long gas lines and his failed attempt to led through the energy crisis during his term as President.
In the book he says that the Iraq war was not necessary, that Saddam Hussein was not a threat and Carter is attempting to become the voice for the anti war.
If you’re a liberal and need a source to confirm your thoughts, then this is the book for you. If you’re not a liberal don’t waste your time or money, unless you want to know how bad the liberals twist truth or reality.
I am glad that I read it, I am also thankful that I didn’t purchase it. Thanks to Brian’sBlog Mother in Law.
