I knew Dr. Cook (he was a friend of the family for years, and I once wrote a profile of him for the now-defunct Christian Herald). He was just the warmest and most endearing bear of a man you could ever meet. You just had to grin around the guy, he was ebullient and genial and genuine. In the old days, when I used to doubt the reality of the Christian experience, first-hand knowledge of the lives of men like Dr. Cook and my own father nuked those doubts.

I had almost forgotten the Christian Herald magazine. My mother subcribed to it when I was a kid back in the 1940's, but I haven't seen one in many years.
I used to listen to Dr. Cook almost every morning on my way to work. After I retired and moved I couldn't get him on the only Christian radio I can hear in this area.(a Moody Bible Institute FM station) I really miss hearing him and J. Vernon McGee.
OTOH, the Moody station occasionally runs old tapes of Vance Havener's(sp?) sermons, and even, rarely, some old wire recordings of Dr. Harry Ironside's sermons. So that makes up for a lot of the other things I can't get.

I was delighted this week to receive a personal reply to a fan letter I sent to Dr. Cook's ministries. From his daughter Lois. There is a website.
(Fan mail isn't like it used to be! I love the internet :-)
