Scope and content

Audio 25a consists of the following recording:
Title: Ron Nikkel and Chuck Colson – “Prison Fellowship”
This lecture takes place the day after Aud. 24 / Aud. 26. An unidentified speaker - possibly Ian Stanley - introduces Ron Nikkel, president of Prison Fellowship International. Nikkel speaks on the importance of bringing Christ to those who are suffering. He argues that crime represents the failure of the individual while prison represents the failure of society. It is through the transforming power of Christ that moral change can be made. He encourages those listening to reach out to those who are suffering and in need of change. The same unidentified speaker introduces Chuck Colson (Christian leader, cultural commentator, and author who served as Special Counsel for President Richard Nixon from 1969 to 1973). Colson describes the personal struggle and events that drew him into prison ministry following his release from prison. Colson discusses the formation of his prison ministry with Harold Hughes. He tells several personal stories about the influence of Jesus Christ in the prison. He argues that out of the prisons comes hope. The recording cuts off suddenly.
Audio 25b consists of the following recording:
Title: Chuck Colson – “Prison Fellowship”
This continues from recording 25a with a personal story of making change in the prison system. Colson then tells the story of the Christian revolution in the Philippines and his friendship with Benigno Aquino, Jr. Colson relates several more personal stories about the effects of Prison Fellowship on inmates around the world. He argues for ordinary people to stand up and make change in the name of Christ. He then leads the group in prayer. Finally, Colson takes a question from the unidentified speaker before the recording cuts out.
