And So I Began to Read

Faith Cook is among the most loved of modern British Christian authors. Her mainly biographical works have inspired and delighted thousands. But how did she become interested in her subjects and what has Faith herself read and most appreciated over the years? Here she weaves those books into a brief autobiographical account of her life after she returned to the UK from China.

About the Author

Faith Cook, the daughter of OMF missionaries, was born in China and now lives in Derbyshire, England. She is the author of a number of books, including Fearless pilgrim - the life and times of John Bunyan; Lady Jane Grey, the nine-day Queen of England; Anne Bradstreet - pilgrim and poet; Seeing the invisible; Lives turned upside Down and three other historical novels, Under the scaffold, Caught in the web and Stronger than the sword, all published by Evangelical Press.


'Troubles will be no troubles; distresses will be no distresses, dangers will be no dangers, if you can but secure the presence of God with you' (Thomas Brooks). In this book, Faith Cook honestly and humbly describes her own quest to secure the felt presence of God through a life which has had its own share of trouble and distress. Her personal experience of the love of Christ has been nurtured and enhanced by extensive reading, and she shares highlights from many of the books which nudged her back into a closer walk with God. Reading this made me want to read some of the great works she commends. But more than anything it reminded me that the pearl of great price - for which we should be willing to give up all else - is enjoyment of the love of our wonderful Triune God. -- Sharon James
