Though I share neither Colson's faith nor his politics, this is a really great example of a personal redemptive memoir. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in the genre. ( )

Excellent book about Colson’s faith journey.

I learned so much about the inner workings of the White House, Colson’s activities and responsibilities, and progress of the Watergate investigations. I lived through Watergate and the mass number of stories about it. But Colson’s book gives all those stories a different perspective.

Most importantly, though, it teaches that there is no unredeemed and unforgiven soul that believes in Jesus Christ, no matter you’ve done. The book was uplifting.

The biggest surprise for me was the interaction and care for each other that the Christian brothers showed Colson, despite their political differences and dislike for President Nixon. ( )

The personal testimony of conversion that spanned both a Reformed approach to politics in the seventies, and much of the modern missions to convicts. ( )

I was surprised by several things concerning this book. 1) The well-written story flowed smoothly, never bogging down through its almost 400 pages. 2) I was fascinated by a time in history I knew little about. 3) For some reason I expected a self-righteous presentation of Colson's life, a what-is-wrong-with-the-system story. I found it to be nothing of the sort. A humble telling of a tragic time in his own life and the life of the nation as well as many other men, Colson tells a moving story of the ability of God to redeem the most callous and hardened men, intervene in the most bizarre ways, and change a system that is broken. I would recommend this book to anyone. ( )
