Born Again is the autobiography of one of the most influential men of our time. It is not only a remarkable story of one man's redemption in Christ, but a fascinating look inside the events of one of America's most riveting sagas.
In the 1970s, against the backdrop of the explosive Watergate scandal, Charles Colson revealed the story of his own search for meaning during the tumultuous investigations that led to the collapse of the Nixon administration. A convicted former special counsel to the president, Colson paradoxically found new life - not with success and power, but while in national disgrace and serving a prison sentence.

This book is a great listen even if you're too young to remember much or anything about Watergate. Colson tells his story in a way to make you want to continue on to each next chapter. He is a man of true integrity who is not afraid to tell the truth about himself and how telling the truth set him free, even in prison. I want to be a better person after listening to "Born Again." Jon Gauger is my favorite narrator to date in my Audible journey. He does a great Nixon. Highly recommend. Wish the sequel, "Life Sentence" was available on Audible.
The inside baseball of DC politics with the conviction of Jesus Christ thrown into the mix.
His Richard Nixon voice was pretty good.
Yes. Very addicting. Captivating.
Yes, I would. Not only is it great to learn about the history of our country, but it's the story of how one person's life has affected so many countless others for good.
I liked the way Colson was a man of integrity and honesty and made the hard choices in life.
This book is wonderful--and Colson was a man after God's own heart. I appreciate his honesty and the way he described how his life was when he was Nixon's advisor.
Colson gives us truth-filled picture of what the Watergate scandal looked like from his point of view. The story is that Colson worked for Nixon and could pretty much be relied upon to get anything done (aka Hatchet Man). Colson explains his subsequent conversion and time in prison. It was a fascinating and informative book that I would recommend to anyone.
worth the listen
I'm actually looking for others that would compare.
I would've preferred to hear it straight from Chuck Colson, but he did a great job.
Yes, yes it is spiritually moatavative and informative.
I found stand he took as a new Christian challengeing to all Chrisrtian regardless of Spritual age.
could not wait for time to listen again.
Have not read the book, but the audio version adds a lot of color & expression that words cannot replicate.
Never Surrender by Lt Gen Jerry Boykin - both faced tremendous scrutiny & persecution in their powerful positions in the US Govt/Military. But through their faith & peace in Jesus, they were able to come thru the turmoil and go on to impact many many persons to the Kingdom.
I loved Pres Nixon's persona presented
I captured my full attention. I listened to the first 10 chapters in the first sitting!
Outstanding testimony of how power, prestige & position are not enough to fulfill the inner void that only a personal relationship with Jesus can fill.
I haven't read the print version of this book, but I'm auditory so I like how the story came alive.
Yes, he was very good.
Yes, the story was compelling.
