How now shall we live? by Charles W Colson( Book )
23 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 1,230 libraries worldwide
Christianity is more than a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. It is also a worldview that not only answers life's basic questions--Where did we come from, and who are we? What has gone wrong with the world? What can we do to fix it?--but also shows us how we should live as a result of those answers. How Now Shall We Live? gives Christians the understanding, the confidence, and the tools to confront the world's bankrupt worldviews and to restore and redeem every aspect of contemporary culture: family, education, ethics, work, law, politics, science, art, music. This book will change every Christian who reads it. It will change the church in the new millennium

Against the night : living in the new dark ages by Charles W Colson( Book )
10 editions published between 1989 and 1999 in English and held by 677 libraries worldwide
"Material obsession paralyses the West and political repression grips the East. All around us crime rises, moral values decline, and families fragment. Indeed, the forecast is foreboding.... The crisis is not political; it is moral and spiritual. And so is the solution. That's why Christians are the only ones who can offer viable answers. So I have written this book not just as a warning, but as a challenge to God's people". (Preface)

Emily illuminates each page with imagery--making you laugh, making you cry, inspiring you to preserve and break free of your own barriers"--Dust jacket flap
Justice that restores by Charles W Colson( Book )
6 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and Korean and held by 413 libraries worldwide
Colson contends that a system of true justice can be built only if it is based on the foundation of a sound worldview. What we believe as individuals about the value of life, the essence of human nature, and the possibility of redemption is the critical issue that determines an effective approach to justice and reform. In this readable and challenging work, Colson combines his personal experience, his extensive study of the justice system and efforts at prison reform, and his encounters with prisoners themselves. Justice That Restores is insightful and prophetic; offering compelling answers to the failures of America's system of justice

Being the body by Charles W Colson( Book )
6 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 310 libraries worldwide
Many believe Charles Colson and Ellen Vaughn's The Body to be the watershed book of the past decade. It impacted the Church worldwide, encouraging Christians of diverse backgrounds to see themselves as part of the universal body of Christ. Now, a decade later, these acclaimed authors have come together to revisit this crucial subject. While retaining the original message's core theme, nearly half of this new, revised, and expanded edition contains fresh stories and riveting insights from today's headlines. With provocative stories - from Christians weeping for their friends in the rubble of the World Trade Center, to new converts kneeling behind the razor wire of a Delaware prison, to unforgettable pictures of God's people around the world - Colson and Vaughn punctuate prophetic analysis of the problems dogging the Church with striking models of what the Body must be in order to shine Christ's light in the darkness
