This review is from: CROSS AND THE SWITCHBLADE: The Greatest Inspirational True Story of All Time (Paperback)
I first read David Wilkerson's powerful recounting of his life as a young preacher, relocating from Philadelphia to the violent streets of 1950s and 60s New York. From being threatened with a knife by the murderous Nicky Cruz and being literally inches from death, to seeing dozens of young gang members converted to follow Jesus, Wilkerson's calling was an unenviable one, but boy did he fulfil it throughout his long life, until his recent death and undoubted journey into glory.
'Inspirational' is a word that is bandied about, often thoughtlessly and cheaply, however Wilkerson's story, and the man himself, are the genuine article.
