Born Again by Charles Colson
'Tough, wily, nasty and tenaciously loyal to Richard Nixon', 'incapable of humanitarian thought': all descriptions of Charles Colson, Nixon's political fixer, made before his fall from grace during the 1970's Watergate Scandal. In "Born Again", his acclaimed autobiography, Colson describes the day he sat in his prison cell and began jotting down notes on a yellow pad about the events that brought about the fall of a President and the rebirth of his former 'hatchet man'. These notes developed into "Born Again", a classic story of a changed life. In the decades since its initial telling, Charles Colson's inspiring story of a life renewed has brought hope, encouragement and new life to millions. After his release Colson, founded Prison Fellowship, which has since become the world's largest outreach to prisoners, ex-prisoners and their families. His work and dedication over the past twenty-five years reflects the promise he made on his release from prison that he would 'never forget those behind bars'.
