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.
"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.
"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.
Great read! I really enjoyed this true, inspirational story of tragedy, redemption and God's manifest direction!!
"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.
"the best audio book I have listened to"
I Laughed, smiled, grimaced and cried over the two weeks it took me to finish this book. A wonderful story that all should read or listen to, I highly recommend!
History, and yet, still so relative today! Took a little bit to get into it, but worth every minute of my time!
Starts off slow and Mondain and sometimes it had like oh I don't know about this and then by the end you're completely enthralled. Great life lessons.
Enjoyed hearing the history of Watergate as retold by Colson. The performance by Jon Gauger was one of the best I've listened to on Audible. Colson's story of redemption and faith is encouraging and a reminder that our stories are simply a part of God's greater story that he is writing.
This is the story of a journey from apparent power to real power. Having lived through the Nixon crisis I yet did not understand it. This really helps clear up gaps as well as experiencing a man's conversion.
