Product Description

David Wilkerson had his life all planned out: a quiet pastorate in a small country church. But God had others plans, calling him to share the good news of Christ with violent gang members in New York City. Forty-five years later that young pastor still oversees Teen Challenge, the ministry that grew out of that calling. His story is a testimony to what can happen when ordinary people open themselves up to the work of an extraordinary God. Foreword by Chuck Colson.

Publisher's Description

Fifty years ago, when a lanky country preacher stepped onto the gang-ridden streets of New York City, most people thought he had gone over the edge. But David Wilkerson had faith that God was leading him and never looked back. Today his inner-city ministry, Teen Challenge, boasts residential and crisis counseling centers in more than seventy countries. Its Christian discipleship program has restored hope to tens of thousands of men and women with drug or alcohol addiction.
In this 45th anniversary edition of The Cross and the Switchblade, readers will experience anew the dramatic story that started it all. Since its original 1963 publication, The Cross and the Switchblade has sold more than 15 million copies. Wilkerson's story continues to inspire renewed faith in God's ability to overcome problems that even the most determined human efforts cannot resolve.

Foreword by Charles W. Colson.

    Encouraged Me Toward Bolder Prayers

    Although this book has been around for ages, I am a younger person and it was completely new to me. The story line is fast-paced, exciting and is loaded with jaw-dropping examples of God's grace, but I think the best surprise for me was an undercurrent theme of the power of prayer. I feel challenged to pray harder and bolder, encouraged that God can and does indeed move mountains in response to prayer when we pray according to His will. This is a great read.

    This book was given to me by my high school girlfriend many years ago. It was one of the main factors in leading me to Christ. I was headed down the wrong path and thankfully for her prayers and this book I was led to allow Gods saving grace enter my life. It is real so do not look for any legalistic fluff and cutesy sayings. Blessings

    This book is a source of encouragement for the body of believers. It shows how God can use a willing vessel to do his work. It tells of amazing miracles that only God could initiate..and that when you feel you are not getting anywhere to continue & persevere because God will take the mess & make a miracle out of it. David Wilkinson was definately a prophet of God for our times & this book will inspire you in your walk with God.

    I cried all the way through this book, I had to keep putting it down, so I could speak with God, and collect myself. I could not believe that someone else shared my same dream to save the lost, in this manner. This book help re-kindle my HOPE for my dreams, and reasurred me that with God, Jesus , Holy Ghost- power we will win souls to Christ, and God cares very much for these lost kids and there is something we can do about it ! It also help to affirm in me that nothing will suceed without them, and with the Holy Ghost guiding. As well as many other teaching I recieved from reading these stories. I am purchasing multiple copies to give to other.
