This past weekend, the evangelical community lost one of its most influential voices – Charles W. Colson. Here’s the statement released by Billy Graham in reaction to losing his friend:
“For more than 35 years, Chuck Colson, a former prisoner himself, has had a tremendous ministry reaching into prisons and jails with the saving Gospel of Jesus Christ. When I get to Heaven and see Chuck again, I believe I will also see many, many people there whose lives have been transformed because of the message he shared with them.
He will be greatly missed by many, including me. I count it a privilege to have called him friend.”
