Full Product Description
David Wilkerson, the man whose account of Christ and New York gangland culture reached out to a broken world shares with you the story behind and beyond the landmark bestseller 'The Cross and the Switchblade'.
Narrated by his son, Gary Wilkerson, you’ll find your faith inspired and strengthened as you read about a man who trusted God’s providence even the most dangerous of circumstances.
David Wilkerson began his world renowned ministry to New York in 1958 by confronting the gangs who dominated and terrorised the city street. Armed with only a cross and his faith, Wilkerson applied the message of the gospel - and bit of God inspired tough love - to helping some of the most dangerous men and women escape the destructive spiral of drugs and violence.
With persistence and compassion, David carried forward his message that God had not given up on the gang members and drug addicts; because he saw in their eyes what others had failed or refused to see: Jesus Christ.
Going on to found Teen Challenge, an organisation committed supporting addicts as they escape their dependency, Wilkerson also leaves Times Square Church - a nondenominational church of 8,000 - as his legacy to the city and to the wider world.
There is no doubt that Wilkerson, a skinny preacher from rural Pennsylvania, was a hugely influential for good in the city of New York. But that’s only part of the story.
This book gives you the full view of David Wilkerson’s vision, motivation, means and achievements set in the context of his whole life. Only here will you find the understanding you need to fully appreciate the lasting impact of one of the most effective evangelists of our troubled times.
