Joe Donahue's interview with Jimmy Carter
Albany, NY – In the book, Carter offers a personal consideration of "moral values" as they relate to the important issues of the day.

He describes his own involvement and reactions to some - what he sees as -disturbing societal trends that have taken place during the last few years. These changes involve both the religious and the political worlds as they have increasingly become intertwined, and include some of the most crucial and controversial issues of the day -- frequently encapsulated under "moral values."

The name of the book is "Our Endangered Values." It is published by Simon and Schuster.
