Carter, Jimmy. Faith and Freedom: The Christian Challenge for the World. London, U.K.: Gerald Duckworth and Company, Ltd. August 2006

Jimmy Carter's moral views and beliefs are evident in this book where he targets seculars and orthodox evangelicals for their wrong moral policies and ethical approaches. Carter maintains that true Christian values have much to offer and they can provide the correct path to various political problems of the country including terrorism. The book opens with a long debate on terrorism and how wrong policies have resulted in increased terrorist attacks. He feels that it is due to blatant disregard for true Christian values that we witness growing social and political unrest including economic disparities between rich and poor, appalling treatment of prisoners in Iraq and inexcusable disregard for basic human rights.

He blames fundamentalist Christians for influencing foreign policy and international relations. He feels that America can renew its commitment to the ideals of freedom for all and basic respect of human life provided it is done soon and effectively.
