Nine short, inspiring biographies of lesser known Christians who made a difference. Perhaps best known is Patricia St John (the final chapter) to whom Mrs Cook pays a personal and moving tribute to someone who showed such kindness. As William Philip (St George’s Tron, Glasgow) observes, these stories are ‘full of interest and inspiration’.
‘Faith Cook’s many devoted readers will certainly welcome ‘Out of the Shadows’, a collection of nine short stories and very diverse biographies. Many of the names will be unfamiliar, but their stories are full of interest and inspiration, each in its own way bearing witness to the faithfulness and goodness of the God whose love and mercy knows no bounds. Not just education but real encouragement, will be found in these pages.
