Charles Colson (1931-2012) turned his heart and mind to developing a Christian worldview, and to training a new generation of leaders to renew the church and revitalize the culture. "The whole object of the movement is to penetrate culture. The frontal assault over the last several years has proven inadequate. What we must do now is be salt and light, rubbed into the culture so to speak, in such a way that the people and institutions around us slowly begin to understand that they have embraced the Lie. Our job is to expose the Lie and replace it with the Truth of a biblical understanding of all of reality." The Chuck Colson Center for Christian Worldview is the cornerstone of that movement.
