Chuck Colson

Charles "Chuck" Wendell Colson is a Christian leader, cultural commentator, convicted felon, and author of at least 20 books, including several that have been recognized with ECPA Christian Book Awards.

As former Special Counsel for President Richard Nixon from 1969 to 1973, he is noted for being the first member of the Nixon administration to be incarcerated for Watergate-related charges. He was commonly named as one of the Watergate Seven, but was never charged with, or prosecuted for, any crime related to the Watergate break-in or its cover-up, although he did plead guilty to obstruction of justice in another case. He converted to Christianity in 1973, and the following year served seven months of a one-to-three year sentence in Alabama's Maxwell Prison.

After leaving prison, Colson founded Prison Fellowship Ministries in 1976, which has since become the world's largest outreach to prisoners, ex-prisoners, and their families.

Colson's personal prison experience and his visits to more than 800 prisons throughout the world prompted concerns about the efficacy of the American criminal justice system and made him one of the nation's most influential voices for criminal justice reform. Colson's recommendations have brought together legislators from both political parties and divergent philosophical viewpoints.

Colson is a popular speaker and author. He has written 23 books, which collectively have sold more than five million copies. His autobiographical book, Born Again, was one of the nation's best-selling books of all genres in 1976 and was made into a feature-length film.

In 1991 Colson launched a daily radio feature called "BreakPoint," a unique and well-received attempt to provide a distinct Christian worldview on current issues and conflicts. The program is aired daily on some 1,000 outlets nationwide.
