Meet the Author

Charles Colson

The well-known story of Charles Colson's transformation from President Richard Nixon's "hatchet man" who was "incapable of humanitarian thoughts" to founder of the Prison Fellowship Ministries and internationally recognized Christian author and speaker is a triumph of God finding a man and a man finding God. His 1973 conversion to Christianity was followed by a guilty plea to obstruction of justice and a seven-month prison sentence in 1974. He founded Prison Fellowship Ministries in 1976, fulfilling a promise made to fellow inmates that he would "never forget those behind bars."

Charles Colson's first book, Born Again, was released in 1976 and instantly became an international bestseller. He has authored many books that have collectively sold more than five million copies worldwide, including Justice That Restores; How Now Shall We Live?; Burden of Truth, Answers to Your Kids; Gideon's Torch; Why America Doesn't Work; Kingdoms in Conflict; and Loving God.

He is also a columnist, international speaker, and commentator on a national radio broadcast. He received the prestigious Templeton Prize for Progress in Religion in 1993 and donated the $1 million prize to the Prison Fellowship's Endowment Fund.

An Inspiring Autobiography
5 stars By Benjamin, Dec 14 2015
I absolutely love Charles Colson books. Born Again traces the developments in Colson's life that eventuated in his conversion to Christianity. Prior to being a Christian, Colson was special council to Richard Nixon. He was jailed for involvement in Watergate. Prior to his sentence he converted, though no body believed Nixon's former hatchet man as it seemed a scheme to gain favor with the judge. The second half of the book traces the growth of his prison fellowship ministry and its many achievements. This is a hugely inspiring read and I'd recommend it to anyone.
