There is no change more radical in the life of any person than that which comes about when they come to faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Every part of their being is touched, and at the deepest level. In these thrilling accounts, Faith Cook takes individuals from the sixteenth to the twentieth century and tells the story of how they were each in their turn ‘surprised by God.’
These wonderful and well-told stories will warm your heart and give you cause for praising the God who seeks out sinners. This is biography with it’s main focus in just the right place, told as it should be by a writer of whom Dale Ralph Davis said ‘I am tempted to say that no one can dig up saints like Faith Cook!’
