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

    "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.

    Story
    "Narrator made me believe he was the author"
    Where does Born Again rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I love listening to audio books. The story is important, but the narrator is equally important to make the listening enjoyable. This narrator was excellent and made me believe he was the author as I was listening. Just like listening to a personal story.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Born Again?

    I was deeply moved by Colson's account of his conversion - not the moment it started, but the continuation of it and how his faith grew as he was willing to do things God's way and not his own way. So often, God's way does not seem to make any sense according to the world's wisdom, however Colson demonstrates again and again the contradiction in this thinking.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is a faith-growing experience. One's eyes are opened to the realities of political life, but also to the possibilities of doing things "against the grain" and having eternal influence over people in your sphere.

    Story
    "Greatest BIO I've 'read' in last decade!"

    I loved this book! I couldn't stop listening to it! The narrator is actually interesting, he does Nixon's voice impeccably & adds inflections that make it like real storytelling instead of simply reading words on a page.

    And the story - it's powerful, humbling, and riveting with so much detail that it paints a picture as though you're there in the White House, in the court room, in the prison. Must read!

    "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,
