This non-fiction book entitled "The Golden light " was written by Walter Cronk in 1964 in Los Angeles, California and contains 197 pages. I first met Lt.Col. Walter H. Cronk in a hospital in southern California. We spoke for about 30 minutes before he was taken into surgery. In that time that we conversed, he revealed to me that he was actually Walter Cronkite's cousin, but he had changed his name to avoid confusion of identity with his famous relative. He went on to tell me that he wrote a book called " The Golden Light " which was partially based on personal spiritual experiences. Quite frankly, I wasn't really convinced that he was telling me the truth because what he was saying seemed to be rather questionable. I also thought that the pre-op drugs were taking effect and possibly he was a little delirious. When I got off work, I went right to a bookstore to check and see if indeed there was such a book called, "The Golden Light "written by Walter Cronk. To my amazement, I found this book and purchased it. I read it through that night at home. I was quite surprised that everything this man told me was written in his book. I was especially amazed to read about his spiritual journey and experiences. Needless to say, I was thoroughly delighted to have read this book and to have personally met the author. Walter Cronk was a veteran of the Normandy Invasion with Patton's 3rd Army. He even told me that in the movie called " Patton " the facts concerning Patton's death were not true. The facts were different. This book was good for my soul. It stresses that we should not cry out to God in times of enormous troubles, but rather we should make it a daily habit of talking and praying to our Heavenly Father.
