The second in a series of inspiring, original programs from one of the most important voices of our time

Jimmy Carter’s beloved bestsellers Living Faith, Sources of Strength, and Our Endangered Values have established him as one of our nation’s most trusted authorities on issues of faith and society. Today, the weekly Bible class he teaches at his home church in Plains, Georgia is attended by visitors from around the world, representing a wide range of faiths and denominations.

Sunday Mornings in Plains gives you the opportunity to share in this remarkable experience wherever you are. Each volume of this extraordinary audio series draws on an extensive archive of recordings to present a month-long sequence of President Carter’s Bible classes. Listening to these live recordings, you’ll hear the unscripted interaction and unexpected insights that make his classes so popular, as well as the anecdotes from President Carter’s life and observations about world events that he infuses into his lessons.

Measuring Our Success presents the five classes President Carter taught in March 2003 on the Book of Mark. Exploring the miracles and aspirations of Jesus’ early ministry, President Carter highlights elements of Jesus’ message that speak to us today, including his challenge to religious leaders who “abandon the commandment of God and hold to human tradition” (Mark 7:8), and his revolutionary and inspiring vision of a loving God who doesn’t measure our success by mortal or material standards.

Recorded at the time of the US invasion of Iraq, these classes open with President Carter’s comments on the eve and outset of the Iraq war, imbuing them with significant and lasting historical interest, and offering a dramatic and moving demonstration of the struggle to reconcile spiritual ideals with the challenges and conflicts of contemporary life.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Carter sheds light on the radical essence of Christ as one who overturned centuries of religious and political assumptions of what constituted success in the eyes of God…Carter’s personal anecdotes, especially when he recounts the monumental spiritual journey that followed a devastating defeat in his first bid for the Georgia governorship, provide highly valuable perspective…The many kernels of learned biblical scholarship, sage wisdom and inspiring insight still provide worthwhile listening.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Carter’s style is casual as he talks with parishioners and visitors from around the country before the lectures. His delivery of his discussions may be low-key, but he shows passion for the scriptures and for biblical knowledge. Listeners will be reminded that Carter is a former president when he touches on politics, using the principles of St. Thomas Aquinas to question the moral grounds for fighting in Iraq.”
