Description

The powerful, dramatic story of how a successful Hollywood set designer whose identity was deeply rooted in his homosexuality came to be suddenly and utterly transformed by the power of the gospel.

When Becket Cook moved from Dallas to Los Angeles after college, he discovered a socially progressive, liberal town that embraced not only his creative side but also his homosexuality. He devoted his time to growing his career as a successful set designer and to finding "the one" man who would fill his heart. As a gay man in the entertainment industry, Cook centered his life around celebrity-filled Hollywood parties and traveled to society hot-spots around the world--until a chance encounter with a pastor at an LA coffee shop one morning changed everything.        

In A Change of Affection, Becket Cook shares his testimony as someone who was transformed by the power of the gospel. Cook's dramatic conversion to Christianity and subsequent seminary training inform his views on homosexuality--personally, biblically, theologically, and culturally--and in his new book he educates Christians on how to better understand this complex and controversial issue while revealing how to lovingly engage with those who disagree. A Change of Affection is a timely and indispensable resource for anyone who desires to understand more fully one of the most common and difficult stumbling blocks to faithfully following Christ today.

    Brilliant and authentic - so fun to hear a story of ones path to Christ, and how he laid everything down in exchange for knowing and pursuing a full relationship with Christ.

    Scripture oozes out of him. I have been inspired to get out my pen and index cards and begin scripture memorization again. Thank you for speaking truth.

    Becket Cook beautifully shares his testimony as well as lessons for both Christians and non-believers regarding same-sex relations. This was a great and fast read with valuable insight.

    I heard you speaking on my way as a volunteer at our local Pregnancy Center. Was inspired to hear more so immediately bought the book on my pad. As a grandmother and nurse for 50 years, I wanted to understand more of questions on homosexuality as is so much in our culture today. I was blessed by your story and could not stop reading til I finished it. May God bless you in all your ministries!
  • Loved the witness!
