Twenty years ago, against the backdrop of the explosive Watergate scandal, Charles Colson revealed the story of his own search for meaning during the tumultuous investigations that led to the collapse of the Nixon administration. A convicted former special counsel to the president, Colson paradoxically found new life not with success and power, but while in national disgrace and serving a prison sentence.
In the new foreword for this anniversary edition of Born Again, Colson describes the day he sat in his prison cell and began jotting down notes of the events that brought about the fall of a president and the rebirth of his former "hatchet man." Those notes developed into this book, which has sold more than two million copies.
"All I knew was that I had a story I must tell, a story that might bring hope and encouragement to others," Colson recalls. In a new epilogue, he describes some of the ways the story has indeed brought hope, encouragement, and more.About the Author :
Charles Wendell Chuck Colson (1931) was the chief counsel for President Richard Nixon from 1969 to 1973 and was one of the Watergate Seven, jailed for Watergate-related charges. His later life has been spent working with his non-profit organization devoted to prison ministry called Prison Fellowship. Colson is also a public speaker and author. He is the founder and chairman of the Wilberforce Forum, which is the Christian worldview thinking, teaching, and advocacy arm of Prison Fellowship, and includes Colsons daily radio broadcast, BreakPoint, now heard on a thousand outlets. The ministry conducts justice reform efforts through Justice Fellowship. Colson has received fifteen honorary doctorates and in 1993 was awarded the Templeton Prize, the worlds largest cash gift (over $1 million) which is given each year to the one person in the world who has done the most to advance the cause of religion. He donated the prize, as he does all speaking fees and royalties, to further the work of Prison Fellowship.
