Becket Cook was born and raised in Dallas, Texas. After college, Becket moved to Los Angeles to pursue his dream of writing and acting, finding some success in both. He eventually wound up in a career as a set designer working with the top photographers in the world on fashion shoots for magazines such as Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar, and for ad campaigns such as Gap, Louis Vuitton and Nike. Finding a new sense of freedom in L.A., Becket also fully engaged in his new life as a gay man. He had a series of many relationships with other men throughout the next fifteen years. In September of 2009, Becket met a stranger at a coffee shop in Silverlake who invited him to his church in Hollywood called Reality L.A. Becket agreed to attend the service, against his better judgment. After hearing the sermon that Sunday, Becket was utterly transformed by the Gospel and gave his life to Christ. He also knew on that day when God revealed Himself to him that homosexuality was a sin and that he could no longer live that life. Becket was more than happy to count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus his Lord! Becket spends much of his time in ministry speaking at churches, universities, and conferences helping believers (and non-believers) understand this issue biblically, theologically, culturally, and personally. His goal is to challenge the current cultural narrative about sexuality in general and homosexuality in particular by demonstrating through his personal testimony and other thoughts of his that, yes, homosexuality is still a sin (even though everything in culture tells us otherwise) and that following Christ is infinitely more satisfying and joyous. He has lived all over the world in major cities such as Rome, Vienna, and Tokyo. Becket recently graduated from Talbot School of Theology at Biola University with a Master of Arts in Theology. Becket’s book, A Change of Affection: A Gay Man’s Incredible Story of Redemption, was published by Thomas Nelson (Harper Collins) and released July 30, 2019. Francis Chan wrote the foreword.
