In 1974 Charles W. Colson pleaded guilty to Watergate-related offenses and, after a tumultuous investigation, served seven months in prison. In his search for meaning and purpose in the face of the Watergate scandal, Colson penned Born Again. This unforgettable memoir shows a man who, seeking fulfillment in success and power, found it, paradoxically, in national disgrace and prison. In more than three decades since its initial publication, Born Again has brought hope and encouragement to millions. This remarkable story of new life continues to influence lives around the world. This expanded edition includes a brand-new introduction and a new epilogue by Colson, recounting the writing of his bestselling book and detailing some of the ways his background and ministry have brought hope and encouragement to so many.
Charles Colson was a popular and widely known author, speaker and radio commentator whose critiques of American culture made him one of the nation’s most prominent proponents of a biblical world view. He founded the international ministry Prison Fellowship and the Colson Center for Christian Worldview. Many of his books, such as Born Again, The Body, Loving God, The Good Life, How Now Shall We Live? and The Faith, shaped modern Christian thinking on cultural issues and public policy. In 1993, Colson was awarded the prestigious Templeton Prize for Progress in Religion, donating the entire $1 million prize to Prison Fellowship. And in 2008, Colson was honored by President Bush with the Presidential Citizen’s Medal. His radio broadcast, BreakPoint, airs daily to 2 million listeners.
