Overview

Live with a bold and loving faith in the public square

Chuck Colson s life reveals that there is no division between truth and love, between embracing biblical guidance and loving one s neighbor. The Colson Way uses Colson s legacy and wisdom to show Christians a way of living a public faith with conviction and generosity toward all.

A praiseworthy intellectual achievement and a gift to the Christian community.

Robert P. George, McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence, Princeton University

Required reading for any Christian seeking to engage in the public square.

Frank Wolf, Senior Distinguished Fellow, 21st Century Wilberforce initiative

I was privileged to know and work with Chuck Colson in several respects. He was a man of character and conviction who understood that believers find themselves in two cities, as Augustine wrote. As a member of the city of God, I have dedicated my life to strengthening the city of man. I am so thankful to see Owen Strachan s The Colson Way celebrate this kind of vision. I commend it highly and urge pastors and churches to buy this book and to share this vision with their people."

Mike Huckabee

An honest, enjoyable, and eye-opening look at one of the most significant Christian leaders of the twentieth century.

Sean McDowell, Ph.D., author of The Fate of the Apostle

Strachan (Risky Gospel), director of the Carl F.H. Henry Institute for Evangelical Engagement, advocates for a renewed focus on spreading "the gospel of Jesus Christ in every sphere of life" by examining the life lessons of Chuck Colson, a politician turned preacher. Structured as a treatise for social change, and primarily directed at millennials, the book is also part homily and part hagiography on the life of Colson. Some of the causes championed by Colson (and Strachan) include justice for prisoners, expanded religious freedoms, respect for traditional marriage, and demand for pro-life approach to abortion. The opening chapters follow Colson's career from political meltdown to prison reformer; he eventually finds his voice as a tireless gospel preacher and establishes Prison Fellowship, a faith-based reentry program. Strachan mainly addresses younger generations and suggests society has reached a "kairos" moment—the hour of Christians choosing to, according to Colson, "stand for the Lord regardless of what my state tells me." The author rarely critiques or questions Colson: "He had his flaws. He worked too hard, made his schedule too full, and sometimes spoke too strongly." Strachan's philosophy for this unwieldy book can be summed up with a note Colson wrote to Southern Baptist official Andrew Walker: "Love your country, but love your God more." (July)
