Former President Jimmy Carter has gotten some love from CNN recently, and he received another warm interview Sunday morning from correspondent Martin Savidge. CNN touted Carter's "lessons of faith" he offered in his new book.

Savidge hailed the book as "inspirational" and told Carter "It's very deep in your faith."Anchor Deborah Feyerick hyped that the former President is "no stranger to writing books" and noted that he's written over two dozen. [Video below the break. Click here for audio.]
