Item Description...
Sharing from his own life, as well as the stories of others, Chuck Colson exposes the counterfeits of the good life and leads readers to the only true source of meaning and purpose, Jesus Christ. But he does that in an unusual way, allowing powerful stories to illustrate how people have lived out their beliefs in ways that either satisfy or leave them empty. Colson addresses seekers--people looking for the truth. He shows through stories that the truth is knowable and that the truly good life is one that lives within the truth. Through the book, readers get to understand their own stories and find answers to their own search for meaning, purpose, and truth.

The Good Life  Mar 27, 2007
A terrific book and one to use as a manual to integrate God into your daily life
Chuck Colson  Feb 13, 2007
This was for my church library since I am the librarian. I trusted it would be good for others I've read by him have been. He's a solid Christian whose life reflects his belief.

An Excellent Read or Listen!  Aug 15, 2006
Thirty five years ago a White House cover-up shook the nation. In the midst of the national controversy were the individual lives that would never be the same. One of those lives is that of Charles Colson. After serving time in prison for releasing confidential FBI information, Colson underwent a transformation, a conversion. He told about his conversion in his popular book Born Again. More than three decades later he's telling his story again, but from a more developed perspective, in his recent book, The Good Life.

The Good Life isn't completely about Charles Colson. In fact, his is just one of many stories the authors share to explore the issues of purpose, meaning, and truth in this life. Reflections are offered on men who "had it all," such as L. Dennis Kozlowski (former CEO of Tyco International), as well as people who endured devastating pain and suffering, such as Nien Cheng (a women who suffered under Communist rule in China).

Each of the stories told sheds some light on what "the good life" truly is. Along the way, pieces are placed together in the puzzle. Colson and Hackett make the case that self-sacrifice in serving others is an essential element. So to, they claim, is a well-founded worldview that holds truth as valuable and morality as objective. Ultimately, "the good life" comes from complete surrender to Jesus Christ- embracing who He is and what He wants to do with our lives.

I thoroughly enjoyed The Good Life. The stories were artfully told in a manner that drew suspense at times and thoughtfulness at others. Powerful points are made by the use of these narratives in conjunction with the clear thinking of a seasoned apologist. The Good Life by Charles Colson and Harold Fickett is exceptional book that will draw readers from almost every background.

This is the first book I've ever heard. I was skeptical about how good listening to a book is compared to reading it, but I was pleasantly surprised at how great it was. Todd McLaren, the narrator has the perfect voice for the materials. Whenever there was a quote from someone else, he spoke in a different voice, one that was distinct yet fitting for the piece. I don't believe anyone could have done a better job.
The Good Life is a Great Book to Read!  Aug 3, 2006
Well, once again, Colson has written another gem of a book! The premise of The Good Life is that a good life can be found only in a two-fold purpose: serving others and serving them in truth. In other words, do not waste your life satisfying just your own selfish desires and do not serve others just to promote your own self-interest. Instead, we are challenged to serve others because of who Jesus Christ is and what He did for us on the cross at Calvary.

The important points covered in the book include:

1. We acknowledge the evil to embrace the good.
2. When people are too idle, they lack purpose. We were wired to have a purpose in life.
3. Our own personal happiness must never be the ultimate goal in our lives.
4. Living independent of others is unhealthy - we are meant for community.
5. Instead of doing your own thing, the good life depends on giving yourself to others and losing yourself.
6. Integrity is more important than loyalty. Get that wrong and your world collapses.
7. When we feel a desire for something that this world cannot satisfy, then we can realize that we are made for another world.
8. The reality of our death spurs us on to accomplish as much in life as we can.
9. God wants our child-lie faith and wants us to come to Him on His terms.

Read, enjoy, and be challenged to get outside of yourself and make the most of the rest of your life for God's glory!

Highly recommended.
