Chuck Colson

Unlike the mainstream media, Christian leaders have focused on the transformational life and work of Evangelical leader Chuck Colson who died on Saturday.  According to the Christian Post, author and Christian apologist Lee Strobel says, quote, "I'm saddened by Chuck Colson's passing yet rejoicing that he is now in the presence of the Lord he loves so much."  Evangelist Billy Graham pointed to Colson's "tremendous ministry reaching into prisons and jails with the saving Gospel of Jesus Christ" for three and a half decades.  Graham say in a statement, quote, "When I get to Heaven and see Chuck again, I believe I will also see many, many people there whose lives have been transformed because of the message he shared with them."
