Item Description

The Good Life is the most personal book Charles Colson has written since his international best seller Born Again. The true stories from Colson's life and others' lives read like adventures — and that's what Charles Colson says life can be for seekers of the truth. Through these life stories, Colson draws out meaning and understanding that will help seekers make sense of this messy, fast-moving world. This book will show you not only how to find purpose in your life but also how the world really works and how you can fit into its grand design. You will come to know Charles Colson as never before, and you'll also meet:
  • The king of corporate scandals
  • The woman the Chinese Cultural Revolution couldn't break
  • The most tragic figure from Watergate
  • A man recovering from same-sex attraction
  • The film characters who say the most about what's happening in culture now
Colson believes that we can "know the truth and live it. It is through this principle that we can discover what the good life truly is. Find it in the search for meaning, in the search for answers to the questions we all ask: Who am I? Why am I here? How can I find significance in my life? How can I make my life count?

Your life can be a great adventure.

You can find purpose, meaning, and truth.

About the Author
Colson, Chuck

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.
