Born in Manchester, England, writer Graham Cooke has published 20 books about modern spirituality and religion. He is a popular conference speaker and is well-known for his training programs in “prophetic, spiritual warfare and intimacy with God.” Cooke lives in California with his wife Theresa.
Writer Graham Cooke examines what it means to “do church” in the 21st century, advocating a model where pastors become spiritual trainers who train other trainers to start new churches based on joyful, intimate, two-way communication with God. Cooke teaches that transition and transformation can occur rapidly by working through breakthrough and momentum. Concerned with empowering the people of God to live their true identities, followers of Cooke's ideas regard him as an expert in transitional development, corporate reinvention and personal redefinition. He is a consultant to businesses, churches and other organizations.
Cooke established Brilliant Book House, a clearinghouse for his publications, and the website BrilliantPerspectives.com that serves as a portal for his “In Focus” blog, his newsletter and The Warrior Class. The latter is his prayer network, which functions as both an intercessory prayer team and training community. Operating from the conviction that the people of God fight from victory and not for it, members of the Warrior Class work toward a knowledge of God that is so intimate, it infuses every aspect of their lives.
