host Adam McManus chats with Becket Cook, a former homosexual, about his life story encapsulated in
his book entitled “A Change of Affection: A Gay Man’s Incredible Story of Redemption.”
Brett McCracken, of the Gospel Coalition, wrote, “Ten years ago, Becket Cook was a [homosexual] man in Hollywood who had achieved great success as a set designer in the fashion industry. He worked with stars and supermodels, from Natalie Portman to Claudia Schiffer, traveling the world to design photo shoots for the likes of Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar. He attended award shows and parties at the homes of Paris Hilton and Prince. He spent summers swimming in Drew Barrymore’s pool. A decade later, Cook has moved on from that life—and he doesn’t miss it.
“What changed for Cook? He met Jesus. On a momentous day in September 2009, while drinking coffee with a friend at Intelligentsia in L.A.’s Silver Lake neighborhood. Cook started chatting with a group of young people sitting at a nearby table—physical Bibles opened in front of them. They were from a church called Reality L.A.”
Listen to the incredible testimony of how God saved Becket’s soul and empowered him to walk away from homosexuality. Plus, learn about whether there is such a thing as a “homosexual Christian”, why homosexuals really march in “pride” parades, and how you can reach out to the homosexuals in your life with the love and truth of Jesus Christ.
A graduate of Talbot School of Theology, Becket speaks around the country on the importance of churches and Christians addressing this inescapable cultural issue from a Biblical perspective. You can book him at email@example.com.
