Born Again is the autobiography of one of the most influential men of our time. It is not only a remarkable story of one man's redemption in Christ, but a fascinating look inside the events of one of America's most riveting sagas.

In the 1970s, 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.

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deonna | 2/7/2014

    " Biography of his life. He was part of the Nixon administration that went to jail for Watergate. It was in prison that he found God and became the founder of Prison Fellowship. A great read! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Larry | 1/24/2014

    " i admire colson's work with prisoners in founding prison fellowship and i'm glad Jesus turned him around, but he's a stick in the mud 5 point calvinist old curmudgeon who complains about contemporary music, men wearing shorts, etc "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vikki | 1/24/2014

    " This is a great book, especially if you've lived through Watergate and the turbulant '70s. If you're looking for something that would give you insight into that era, I suggest you read this book. What's amazing is that the turbulance of the '70s and the revival that took place in the Jesus Movement, mirrors today's turbulance and impending revival. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeff | 1/21/2014

    " Great story of redemption. Colson goes from being a political hachet man to one of the most influential voices of Christianity. I highly recommend this book. For people who have struggled with their faith, they will likely recognize themselves. For those who have never had serious struggles, it may help you empathize more with those of us who have. "

    " I recently remembered that I read this book in 2001 after the Billy Graham Crusade in Fresno. I'm sad that I don't remember more of it, I might re-read it at some point. I do remember enjoying the conversion story of Mr. Colson and I found his journey through prison life intriguing. "

    " You gotta love Chuck Colson. Guy commits rampant felonies against his country, goes to prison, comes out even MORE holier than the rest of us, and is so completely certain ... and so completely wrong about everything.
