LETTER OF THE WEEK
I've begun to listen to Your
Story online. A few years ago
I read some about your
background on the web,
some degrading things.
So, the details to come are
not going to surprise me.
There are a lot of us facing
the truth and following Jesus
now. That's unlike many who
are oblivious to their human
I haven't found a radio show
quite like yours. Seems like it
should encourage many
Colin D. Cook presents his daily
look at the grace of God for men
and women troubled and weighed
down by life's worries and
struggles ... including his own!
"How It Happens" airs locally on
KLT Denver in Colorado USA, but
now you can listen anytime from
anywhere in the world... just at the
click of a button!

unusual and challenging radio
Hello Friend and Welcome! You have stepped into a
website that's likely to shed an entirely new light on
your faith in God through Jesus Christ, or help you
more than you expect to know what being a believer in
Jesus is all about, especially where it relates to life's
To be frank, there is Christian radio, and then there is
FaithQuest radio. Most Christian radio puts an
emphasis on information, inspiration, Christian living,
political activism or prophecy. But FaithQuest radio,
through verse-by-verse teaching of the Gospel from the
book of Romans, draws you into an understanding of
who Jesus Christ is for you, what He has done for you
that you could not do, and how your faith in Him is
Your radio host, Colin Cook, will not preach at you or
shout through the radio. He is a teacher-preacher. He
explains things. Through his friendly voice you will be
drawn into his message, not forced into it. Each
broadcast comes fresh from his own heart, without the
use of notes, yet not without years of study and personal
struggles. So you will sense him exploring the Gospel
along with you rather than talking down to you. This is
where the miracle of grace happens as it is shared
between you and him.
But there's more. Colin assumes from the outset of his
broadcast that every Christian or would-be Christian has
problems - some public, some private. These problems
can range from worry and anxiety to work and family-
related issues. Or they can be very “lonely” problems,
like intimate sex struggles, or drugs, alcohol and food
Yet Colin's radio broadcasts, you will notice, will not start
with your problems. They will concentrate on the
meaning of Jesus, His cross and His resurrection for
your life. At first this might frustrate you because you'll
want to deal with “you”. But as you keep listening, your
attention will move from you to Jesus, and that,
strangely, is when faith-training for life's difficulties kicks
in in a remarkable way.
Here is also where FaithQuest radio is unlike other
Christian radio you might have listened to. At no time
will a broadcast leave you hanging, with the question,
“but what do I do about this?” floating like a bubble over
your head. Each broadcast will train your faith to
intercept your problems with the Good News about
Christ. This is where problems turn into opportunities!
Believe it! You are in for an adventure!
So what's the best way to work with this website? First,
browse around to see what's here. Then click on to one
of Colin's broadcasts. If you find yourself being drawn in,
bookmark this site so that you can quickly click on and
make a daily habit of listening maybe before you go to
work, or before you go to sleep. Colin suggests that a
year's daily radio listening will train your faith towards a
new way of living as a Christian in this world.
We recommend also that you click on to Colin's articles
and read them carefully. They will support your listening
experience and fill in the blanks for you. You can contact
FaithQuest, too. Though Colin cannot respond
personally in most instances, you'll be on our mailing
list for updates and further encouragement. By the way,
your e-mails are read by Colin only. And email
addresses are not shared with third parties.
So welcome again! We hope you'll begin to feel that this
website is a little home from home; a place to visit daily;
somewhere to go when you feel alone; a place to meet
with God for love and help.

I have spent some time
recently listening to some of
your Romans 5 teachings,
and want to thank you for a
couple of things.
First, you never or seldom
skip over an uncomfortable
word or enigmatic statement,
but instead wrestle with the
meaning of the text, in prayer
most likely, until some real
I also appreciate (and am
frustrated by) your honesty,
which prevents a false
optimism about our lives
becoming instantly well.
Actually, I really want instant
well - or, better said, after
decades of praying and
seeking, I do not think it would
be instant if my life took on a
much better tenor finally.
But until that happens... and I
know it may happen in small
pieces or, as it has for some,
in larger chunks... your
honesty authenticates the
relation between the teacher
and the teaching.
Praise God! It's so cool how
He works through you to
help me understand and deal
with my addictions.
A few minutes every day I
find serenity. Thank you,
Colin and Jesus.
