Meet a remarkable young man.
Max doesn't communicate like we do. But he communicates better than we do about the most important things. Max doesn't think like we do. But his actions reflect deep spiritual truths.
With candor and wit, Emily Colson shares about her personal battles and heartbreak when, as a suddenly single mother, she discovers her only child has autism. Emily illuminates the page with imagery--making you laugh, making you cry, inspiring you to face your own challenges.
Chuck Colson, in his most personal writing since Born Again, speaks as a father and grandfather.
It is a tender side Max brings out of his grandfather, a side some haven't seen. As Emily recalls her experiences, we discover that Max's disability does not so much define who he is, but reveals who we are.
Dancing with Max is not a fairy tale with a magical ending. It's a real life story of grace and second chances and fresh starts in spite of life's hardest problems.
And Max? Max will make you fall in love with life all over again, leaving you dancing with joy.

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
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.
