Hot, hot, hot! We're on the second day of 99 degrees-plus-the-heat-index weather. I'm on my wide front porch on the shady side of the house with a woven Palmetto frond fan in my hand. Back and forth, waving steadily. It helps a little -- fanning my sweat glistened cheeks and neck. The ladies a century ago would have said they were "glowing."

When Charles Colson, White House legal counsel under President Richard Nixon, went to prison in 1974 for obstruction of justice related to the Watergate scandal, few people could have predicted the path his life would take. Colson, in the vernacular of the day, got "jailhouse religion" and said he would dedicate his life to helping those behind bars. His conversion was met with a great deal of suspicion. Colson ended up surprising his critics by founding Prison Fellowship, an international evangelical Christian ministry, and spending the next 36 years working to spread his message in an attempt to help inmates ...
