Statement from Franklin Graham about Chuck Colson
CHARLOTTE, N.C., April 21, 2012—"Chuck Colson was one of the great Christian statesmen of our generation. His life and testimony impacted my life. I was in my early 20s when his book Born Again was released. It was one of the first Christian books I ever read and was a powerful and life-changing influence.
Over the years we had the opportunity to work together from time to time. Not only was he a statesman, but a role model and example to thousands. He will be missed and cannot be replaced. His courageous voice that spoke the truth of Jesus Christ to the hearts of so many, will impact lives for years to come."
Franklin Graham is the president and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and Samaritan's Purse.Go Back
