I'm not endorsing every single word spoken or written by any of these authors including Joan Tollifson.
Old Tappan, New Jersey: Against the Night Against the Night, an indictment of the West and a plea that we revive Western Civilization, grew out of lectures that Colson delivered at Wheaton College in There is little new in the book; if one has read C.
Thousands of monastic orders spread across Europe One expects a new religious order - the Colsonites - to appear any day now. Servant, his publisher, is Roman Catholic.

In his Foreword J. He diagnoses our spiritual malaise in clear and stark terms. Thank God for his clarity and vision! And that is a charitable judgment. This book is a collection of essays that Colson wrote for Jubilee, a publication of Prison Fellowship.
In these essays, as in all his books, Colson does exactly what he accuses the media of doing: But, startling as it may sound, these attacks are not really what alarm me. Of course, they are grave - but also obvious No, what concerns me more than the frontal assault is a more subtle attack - the insidious way Christian ideas are subtly altered by an interpretation here, a nuance there.
Does he seriously believe that? Colson describes the writing of the book: Soon I discovered that my own thought and values were changing so fast that what I wrote one month was outdated the next.

Distrust grew between the succeeding generations of disciples and the gulf widened Why could not those who have different theologies but follow the same Christ lock arms, one with another, for the glory of God? The Gospel is absent from this book. Indeed, one looks in vain throughout his books for a clear and accurate statement of the Gospel.
In disregard of logic, he writes: Apparently he has never heard of sodium chloride, water, or geometry. His reading of Christians is lacking.
Colson does take the correct view of prayer in public schools: But organized prayer, even if voluntary, is another matter. The issue is who does the organizing. If it is the school board, Caesar is being given a spiritual function; admittedly a small crack in the door, but a crack nonetheless.
