Religious and political leaders are remembering the life and ministry of Prison Fellowship Ministries founder Charles Colson, who passed away Saturday at the age of 80.
Colson was a towering figure in the evangelical movement. He not only reached the world through his intellect, but he touched thousands through practical outreach to prisoners and their families.
"I think his legacy is 'You know what? Anyone can make that change and anyone can become an individual who has positive influence on our world - a transformation and a new life was possible," Prison Fellowship CEO Jim Liske told NPR in an interview Sunday.
Liske talked to CBN News more about Colson's life and influence, on CBN News Channel Morning News, April 23.
