We are fans of Nicky Cruz! Years ago we gave away our copy of Run Baby Run, so bought a new one for our 9 yr. old daughter to read. She enjoyed reading The Cross and the Switchblade, and is enjoying this book about Nicky Cruz's testimony even more. The true story draws you in and your hooked by the end of the first page.
This book is so incredible, its shows the true beauty of Christ. This book excited me because it proves that Jesus isn't just sitting in a church telling others what to do, he's out in the hardest places in earth loving people, healing people, and redeeming people. One of my absolute favourites!
This book is excellent! I recommend it especially to any person who is in a gang or thinking of joining one. Nicky Cruz thought that drugs, gangs, and sex would fill his life but he was wrong...the emptiness was still there. One day he met Someone who would change his life forever and give him hope and meaning to life. That person is Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today and forever.
