Born Again: What Really Happened to the White House Hatchet Man | [Charles Colson]

Born Again: What Really Happened to the White House Hatchet Man

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.

    "Great Read"

    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.

    "Wow."

    My husband and I both enjoyed Chuck's story. Definitely worth the time and money. Chuck's witness reminds us that we are all tempted and must surrender daily to God's purpose, not mans'.

    "A wonderful story well told. Thank you Chuck Colso"


    It was better than I thought it might be.i really believe I have written what I thought about the book.
    Now I would like to get back to my I-pad and the other activities I thought I would be doing rather than messing here. Maybe it is my I-pad and not your program as I am unable to put an n at the end of Chuck's last name. I hope I can get out of. This program NOW,

    Story
    "Inspiring story of redemption and honesty"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the way Colson was a man of integrity and honesty and made the hard choices in life.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Story
    "Hatchet Man"

    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.
