This review is from: CROSS AND THE SWITCHBLADE: The Greatest Inspirational True Story of All Time (Paperback)
I read this book when I first got saved. It was really encouraging, as I had had a drug background and a broken family. I would still recommend this book to anyone who is searching for God or who is looking for some encouragement in their own lives.
The book goes through David Wilkerson's early ministry, how God called into a lifestyle of prayer and away from old sinful habits. How then God used those times of prayer to awaken in him a desire to reach the unreached youth of NY city. How he got there, met Nicky Cruz, the crazy miraculous things that happened, and how NIcky finally got converted.
Reading this you would think Nicky would be the last person to be converted. Kind of like Saul on the road to Damascus to persecute the Church, but our God is a powerful God of miracles, and can take a life of destruction and turn it around for His glory.
