Using access to Colson's private archives and papers, Aitken presents a biography rich in detail and analysis of his role in current affairs and matters of faith.

Publisher's Description

He was Nixon’s hatchet man. A jailed felon. And now, one of the most significant Christian leaders of our time. Here is his life story.

Charles Colson has become one of the most revered leaders of our time. His ministry outreach, Prison Fellowship, has swelled to 40,000 volunteers working in 100 countries. His Angel Tree Christmas program provides presents to more than half a million children of prison inmates every year. His daily radio broadcast, BreakPoint, airs daily on more than 1,000 radio outlets across the country. And his twenty books have sold more than five million copies in the U.S.

But God had to work some mighty miracles to bring this unusual servant to this prominent place of service. After all, Colson was known as President Nixon’s "hatchet man." His involvement in the Watergate conspiracy led him to prison–and then to a life-changing encounter with God.

Now, noted author Jonathan Aitken has written the first biography that compellingly presents a first-rate understanding of the political, historical, and spiritual journeys of Charles W. Colson… a life redeemed.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Jonathan Aitken’s Nixon: A Life

"Aitken’s well-wrought biography achieves the difficult task of adding hundreds of brush strokes to the existing portraits of Richard Nixon."
Washington Post

"Readers all across the political spectrum will reach for Aitken’s effective, interest-sustaining narrative."
Booklist

"Aitken has unearthed a treasure trove of insights via letters and other communications. A human, if flawed, Nixon emerges from this fascinating account, which could not be more highly recommended."
Library Journal
