The Cross and the Switchblade by David Wilkerson

True account of a country preacher who hears and heeds God’s instruction to help the teen gangs of NYC. The Spirit leads & miracles follow.

Recently I reread this book in conjunction with another biography of another man who also pioneered what is now a huge ministry. Many people find it strange that I work through several books simultaneously, but sometimes interesting comparisons come up. For instance, even though these two people differed on theological issues, they both believed in unequivocal dependence on God and made some radical sacrifices for the sake of knowing God more. They shocked some people of their times, reached desperate people, and inspired other people who today are continuing in their works. I’d say they found something important.

The Cross & The Switchblade, by David Wilkerson, is available at Amazon.co.uk for £4.35
