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.

This is a remarkable book by a remarkable man who went from a prominent political position as Special Counsel to President Nixon to prison. Before going to prison, he had a life-changing experience that transformed his priorities, values and thinking. He became sensitive to the struggles and hopelessness of prisoners with whom he can in contact, which led him to establish Prison Fellowship Ministries. It is the story of an arrogant man, humbled by incarceration that touched the lives of numerous prisoners, ex-prisoners and their families. The book is well-written and inspiring.

I am not one who reads books. This was given to me by a dear friend who wanted to pass along a message to me. It took me 2 months to start the book but i finished it in less then a week after starting it. Honestly, it was one of few books i read from beginning to end. You will find the book to enlighten you in several different aspects. You will also look foward to the next page and enjoy it as much as i did.

What an awesome book! Not only was the story life-altering to my own Christianity, but it changed my political views about prisons and prisoners' rights. I always thought the term "born again" meant you had to be an ultra-freaky Jesus freak, but Colson's story changed my mind.

This is a powerful book that takes you deep in the inner workings of the white house like few books do. The candor with which Colson writes is great and gives the book an honest feel.
