Faith Cook’s subject is familiar to Christian literature but these pages have several factors which make them arresting and captivating. Instead of meeting with well-known names, here is a portrait gallery which includes a number who lived far from public notice. Perhaps John Bradford, Richard Cameron and Edward Payson are still remembered, but who knows of such things as John Oxtoby’s fellowship with God, Wang Ming-Dao’s resolution, Susannah Spurgeon’s ministry of love and Catherine Boston’s lonely sufferings? These pages are full of moving records from the old and the modern.

Author 

Faith Cook, daughter of Stanley and Norah Rowe, missionaries of the China Inland Mission (now OMF), was born in north-west China. After missionaries were evicted from the country in 1951, she returned to the UK and attended Clarendon School in North Wales before proceeding to teacher training college in Bromley, Kent. She married Paul Cook in 1961, and they served several evangelical churches in the Midlands and Yorkshire before his retirement. They have a daughter, four sons and ten grandchildren, and now live in Breaston, Derbyshire.
