Former president Jimmy Carter is now a three-time Grammy winner.
The 39th president won the best spoken word album honor at Sunday’s Grammy Awards for his work, “Faith — A Journey for All.”
The introduction of this book said: “All his life, President Jimmy Carter has been a courageous exemplar of faith. Now he shares the lessons he learned. He writes, “The issue of faith arises in almost every area of human existence, so it is important to understand its multiple meanings. In this book, my primary goal is to explore the broader meaning of faith, its far-reaching effect on our lives, and its relationship to past, present, and future events in America and around the world. The religious aspects of faith are also covered, since this is how the word is most often used, and I have included a description of the ways my faith has guided and sustained me, as well as how it has challenged and driven me to seek a closer and better relationship with people and with God.””
It is Carter’s third win, all in the spoken word category. He won in 2016 for “A Full Life: Reflections at Ninety” and his first Grammy in 2007 for “Our Endangered Values: America’s Moral Crisis.”
Carter did not attend the Grammys’ pre-telecast ceremony, where dozens of awards are handed out before the main show starts at 8 p.m. Eastern.
