Living with faith in a hostile world–learning from Chuck Colson

colsonI am old enough to remember Chuck Colson’s participation in Watergate, but I was not old enough to really understand exactly what he had done wrong.  Today’s generation only know him as the man who brought the Gospel into the prisons and demonstrating how to live a life of conviction and character.

Owen Strachan uses Colson’s example and teaches us how to love our neighbor and share the Gospel.  Written more like a biography, “The Colson Way” takes Colson’s life experiences and applies the principles Colson used to to the way we should model the way we live our life.

Colson’s strengths in the political realm were well-known and eventually got him into serious trouble.  He went to prison for the things he did, but he left with a newfound lease on life and used the very strengths that put him in prions to lead a life of conviction and witness to others about the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Whether or not you are familiar with Chuck Colson, you will find “The Colson Way” interesting and informative. Colson lived a colorful life.  How he lived his life after his salvation is an example we should all live by.
