Los Angeles, California fostered Becket Cook’s ideal life. He worked as a film set designer, had connections with Hollywood elite, and went to lavish parties. Best of all, he’d found an environment that welcomed his homosexuality. Yet he craved a sense of meaning for his existence. After several failed relationships with men, he held out hope for finding “the one” to fill his internal void. A conversation with a Christian man at a coffee shop led Cook to attend a church service. There he heard the gospel. He encountered a presence of love that washed away his emptiness, and he gave his life to God.  

This memoir plunges readers into one man’s poignant journey out of identifying as a homosexual to receiving identity as a child of God. Cook’s transparency and convictions deepen readers’ understanding of the nature of homosexuality and the implications of the gospel for this issue. Cook dives into the crux of this cultural controversy by addressing the heart issues from a biblical standpoint.
