    "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.

    "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.

    "Listening to this was well worth my time!"

    worth the listen

    I'm actually looking for others that would compare.


    What does Jon Gauger bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I would've preferred to hear it straight from Chuck Colson, but he did a great job.

    Yes.

    Story
    "Outstanding"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Born Again to be better than the print version?

    Have not read the book, but the audio version adds a lot of color & expression that words cannot replicate.


    What other book might you compare Born Again to and why?

    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.


    Which character – as performed by Jon Gauger – was your favorite?

    I loved Pres Nixon's persona presented


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I captured my full attention. I listened to the first 10 chapters in the first sitting!


    Any additional comments?

    Outstanding testimony of how power, prestige & position are not enough to fulfill the inner void that only a personal relationship with Jesus can fill.
