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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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,
I thoroughly enjoyed this story about the saving grace of Jesus Christ. Thank you for sharing it with the world.
