    I appreciate a good conversion story and Chuck Colson lived it for us to see.

    I can’t think of anyone else who so completely turned around what mattered in life to him. He will be missed.

    I hope others will carry on his important prison ministry work. May he rest in peace.

    Mr. Colson’s book was one of the key books for me when I became an Evangelical. I still enjoyed his articles in Christianity Today and thought how great it would have been if he had taken that last step to cross the Tibor. Oh well – he was still a blessing and God’s true servant.

    As an aside – Mark – couldn’t you find a better obit to link to than the NEW YORK TIMES?!?!?
