Chuck Colson
In 1976, after serving  seven months of a one-to-three year sentence on Watergate-related charges, former Special Counsel to President Richard Nixon Chuck Colson founded Prison Fellowship, which, together with churches of all confessions and denominations, has become the world's largest outreach to prisoners, ex-prisoners, and their families, with ministry taking place in 113 countries around the globe.

After observing the role moral failure and broken families played in contributing to the problem of crime, Colson sensed God's calling to comment on the culture through the written and spoken word. He has written more than 30 books, including his most recent book, The Faith, and the groundbreaking 1999 bestseller How Now Shall We Live, co-written with Nancy Pearcey. His autobiographical book Born Again was one of the nation's best-selling books of all genres in 1976 and was made into a feature-length film.

 In recognition of his work, Colson received the prestigious Templeton Prize for Progress in Religion in 1993, donating the $1 million prize to Prison Fellowship. And in 2008, Colson was honored by President Bush with the Presidential Citizens Medal for his years of work with prisoners and their families, which Colson accepted on behalf of the volunteers and staff of Prison Fellowship.
