Jimmy Carter

Jimmy Carter, as President of the United States from 1977 to 1981, made significant foreign policy agreements like the Camp David accord. President Carter continues to be a leading international voice for civil, human and religious rights. In 2011, he pioneered the New Baptist Covenant, a gathering of over 30 Baptist denominations to reaffirm traditional Baptist values, and to stress that as Christians we have the obligation to love and to serve (Luke 4:18-19), to promote peace with justice, to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, shelter the homeless, care for the sick and the marginalized. His latest book is A Call to Action: Women, Religion, Violence, and Power. Find out more here.
