For many people, Chuch Colson is a well known household name. Personally, I didn't know a whole lot about the man himself or what he had done, just that he was an evangelical who was pretty popular. That has totally changed after reading this book and I am pretty impressed with the man as a person. His character and what he has accomplished in life make him someone to look up to and follow.
The Colson Way is written by Owen Strachan and starts from when Mr Colson is a young man, basically going through different parts of his life as a Marine and then in DC. He is bold and unashamed of his witness for the Lord and I loved reading this. But more than anything, his work for the Lord inspired me to be loving and kind to those around me, showing them the Lord and leaving an impression on them.
His ministry in the prisons is amazing and reading the testimony of how he got involved made my chuckle but also have me goosebumps. The Lord was definitely working in him and through him to get done what he did. I believe the main group this is aimed for would be millennial evangelicals, I found the book intriguing and would urge any believer to pick it up and at least try it. You won't be disappointed.
