Imagine that a loved one dies, and years later you receive a letter they wrote before they passed. That's how writer Anne Morse describes My Final Word, the new book she co-authored posthumously with the late evangelical figure, radio commentator and former Nixon aide Charles Colson, which shares Colson's uncanny foresight and words of wisdom regarding many of today's critical issues — most notably religion.
The book is comprised of memos, or mini-essays, written by Colson that hadn't before been published or used in any formal capacity. "He used his memos as a sort of diary at times," Morse, a journalist and longtime writer for Colson, told The Christian Post. Colson would routinely dictate his thoughts using a voice recorder and later have them transcribed, she explained.
"He did a lot of dictating daily. We had thousands [of memos] to choose from." Morse told CP that those memos had never been turned into a script for BreakPoint, Colson's Christian worldview daily radio commentary, or used in his column for Christianity Today. Hence the impetus for the book. more >>
