finally read his book. i'm glad i didn't read it until now. to look back at everything
that was going on in the whitehouse with nixon and the war, and how this one man
humbled himself before God and the miracles that followed is awesome. Highly
recommend the book.
Mr. Colson’s describes in detail his transition from his own state of hubris to humility, after the Watergate scandal hit. He was never convicted of anything related to the Watergate scandal but he pleaded guilty to his part in trying to discredit Daniel Ellsberg by using untruths after Ellsberg had leaked the “Pentagon Papers”. His guilty plea surprised the prosecutors because it was not expected and nor had anyone ever been convicted in a similar circumstance. Also, he clearly followed the Nixon’s orders; however this was Mr. Colson’s way of receiving closure on the entire Watergate issue -- his way of accepting responsibility for the decay that had set into the White House. Mr. Colson had been known a Nixon “bull dog” that looked after tough and sticky task that Nixon required, thus the breaking of such a strong personality was not something people saw coming.
Though Mr. Colson’s was a believer before Watergate, this life crisis resulted in a new dedication of his life to Christianity. His conversion resulted in his preemptive guilty plea, shocked his own lawyer, resulted in prison time, and led to the loss of his ability to practice law.
The last third of the book is Colson’s vivid description of his time in prison and how he at first survived and ultimately thrived. His writing is so clear you feel like you are locked up with him as he enters the frightening world of a U.S. Federal prison.Read more ›
