"What do Isaiah's words mean for me today?" In December 2001, Jimmy Carter led a month-long Bible study in Plains, Georgia, on the Book of Isaiah, mixing the personal and political into the discussion. A lesson on dealing with setbacks, for example, finds Carter talking about his own political setbacks and the meaning of a Chinese folktale as he reviews Isaiah's life. The sound quality is mostly good, with occasional dips as Carter talks with parishioners. The comments on world events that start Carter's lessons illuminate his thoughts and positions as expressed in a candid yet low-key style. Carter's gentle nature makes his principled voice stand out.
