The Faith (Unabridged, 7 Cds)

$27.99

Cd

Rightly understood and rightly communicated, the Christian faith is one of great joy. It is an invitation to God's kingdom, where tears are replaced by laughter and longing hearts find their purpose and their home. This is the heart of the gospel: God's search to reclaim us and love us as his own. But have we truly grasped this?

Those of us who have disdained Christianity as a religion of bigotry--have we repudiated the genuine article or merely demonstrated our own prejudice and ignorance? Those of us who are Christians--have we deeply apprehended the mission of Jesus, and do our ways and character faithfully reflect his beauty? From the nature of God, to the human condition, to the work of Jesus, to God's coming kingdom, and all that lies between, how well do we understand the foundational truths of Christianity and their implications?

The Faith is an audiobook for our troubled times and for decades to come, for Christians and non-Christians alike. It is the most important audiobook Chuck Colson ever wrote: a thought-provoking, soul-searching, and powerful manifesto of the great, historical central truths of Christianity that have sustained believers through the centuries. Brought to immediacy with vivid, true stories, here is what Christianity is really about and why it is a religion of hope, redemption, and beauty.

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.

Well written but beware...
3 stars By Abe, Jun 27 2016
I had recently read about the life of Charles Colson. From his time as a hatchet man for Nixon to his transformation following his time in prison.
I found the first part of this book powerful in defending Christianity and providing  some detail into the tenants of this faith. 
However, by midway into this book I began to feel uncomfortable as it became somewhat of a apologetic for Roman Catholicism. He attempts to unite Protestantism with Roman Catholicism with statements such as both sides being guilty of tradition (p. 150) and brushes over the fundamental differences that led to the reformation in the first place.
Uniting opposing faiths just does not work as Christianity is exclusive. The "solas" still remain and oppose ritualism. 
Apart from this, the stories presented by Colson are fascinating and very well written, providing a great insight into the prison ministry.
