Chuck Colson, now deceased, was former Council to President Nixon. He was converted to Christ before going to prison for his involvement in the famous Watergate scandal. In the last thirty-three years of his life, Chuck Colson visited and spoke in more than 600 prisons in forty countries. Helping to develop a team of nearly 50,000 volunteers across the country, the ministry of Prison Fellowship still is one of the most effective Christian ministries to prisoners and their families.
Joni Eareckson Tada, President of Joni & Friends, recommends Colson’s book, Loving God, with the following endorsement, “Looking for the complete volume on Christian living? This is it. And the title sums it up. If you desire life deep, rich, and meaningful, then it is simply Loving God.
Some of the topics Colson tackles in this classic are the following: obedience, the Word of God, sin and repentance, hunger for holiness, the Holy Nation, and loving God. The end of the book contains a study guide for personal or group use. In my opinion, this is one of the books that should be read and discussed in small groups and by every serious Christ follower.
Billy Graham, a man who has faithfully served Christ and proclaimed the gospel for decades said this concerning Chuck Colson’s Loving God, “one of the most spiritually satisfying books I have read”.
Why not consider this classic for your 2018 winter reading and then pass it on to another fellow seeker of truth? As someone once said, “readers are your next leaders.”
