Amid the many ongoing and worthwhile remembrances of Chuck Colson’s life and legacy, I thought I’d pass along this moving feature on Chuck’s transformative experience in prison, in his own words.

This is the last full interview that Chuck gave (September 2011) before his death, and in his own words we can see how he came to see prisoners as human beings, people who were just “like I am.” In prison Chuck met not mere criminals, but “human beings who had committed crimes.”

I found this video to be extremely moving, and to have provided some depth of insight into Chuck’s story that I hadn’t experienced before. Take the time to watch it and share it with your friends and family.
