User Review  - Celeste - Goodreads

Enjoyed it but I thought it ended poorly. Was confusing at the very end. Didn't seem to tie to any of the prior book. Disappointing ending. Read full review

About the author (1995)

Charles Colson, internationally known commentator, columnist, and author, is the founder of Prison Fellowship. His radio broadcast, BreakPoint, airs daily to five million listeners. Former Counsel to President Richard Nixon, Colson converted to Christianity before spending time in prison on a Watergate-related charge. In the last thirty-three years, Colson has visited more than 600 prisons in forty countries and, with the help of nearly 50,000 volunteers, has built Prison Fellowship into the world's largest prison outreach. In recognition of his work, Colson received the prestigious Templeton Prize for Progress in Religion in 1993. He spearheads the Wilberforce Forum, a division of Prison Fellowship, which equips Christians to bring a biblical worldview to all of life. Colson has written more than twenty books, including Born Again, the contemporary spiritual classic Loving God, and with coauthor Ellen Vaughn, the groundbreaking God and Government (originally released as Kingdoms in Conflict). He and his wife, Patty, have three children and five grandchildren.
