Publisher's Summary

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.

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.

Amazing story of God's grace toward mankind

His entire story is necessary for a true understanding of the change brought to his life through the love of Christ.

Wonderful book

Well written and beautifully narrated. Charles Colson writes about his transgressions in Watergate and his conversion towards Christianity.

Life altering book

I have been a Christian since I was very little. But this book opened my eyes to what it means to be a Child of God, and how to live my life as a child of God. Listening to the friends attitudes towards Chuck and Christianity in general changed my perspective. Not only was it amazing for me, but it is an amazing book if you are looking for an answer to life's happiness or what Christianity and God are really about. This is a must read for anyone and everyone.

Strong historical autobiography

I was young enough when Watergate was going on that I don't remember. This was a powerful book and I had trouble putting it down.

Well done

The narrator did a good job, especially with all the characters. Also, the book reads like the work of a true human being, not a public official.
