On Saturday, April 21, Charles Colson died at the age of 80. Evangelicals have lost an influential voice.

Ever heard or used the term “born again”? You owe it to Charles Colson. But in the 1970’s, he seemed an unlikely person to popularize the phrase. He gained fame as President Nixon’s advisor and through his involvement in Watergate. After his conversion, though, he became one of the best known American evangelical voices of all time.

Chuck Colson is a person worth knowing about—especially the story of his spiritual journey. Read his obituary from Christianity Today magazine and a tribute from the author of his biography.
