About the Author

Chuck Colson

Chuck 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 16 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.

The phenomenal growth of Prison Fellowship Ministries over the last twenty-five years leads Charles Colson and some 50,000 volunteers to serve the need of prisoners in over 88 countries. In addition to Prison Fellowship, he founded Justice Fellowship, Neighbors Who Care, and Angel Tree. Angel Tree is a program that provides Christmas presents to more than 500,000 children of inmates annually. He is also a syndicated columnist, international speaker, and commentator on the nationally syndicated radio broadcast BreakPoint. 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.

Charles Colson remains committed to the unity of the church, the relationships between church and state, the struggle between the spiritual and the secular worlds, and constantly encourages Christians to understand biblical faith as an entire worldview and to adopt biblical faith as a perspective on all life.
