Item description for The Cross and the Switchblade by David Wilkerson, Elizabeth Sherrill & John Sherrill...

One fateful night in 1958, a skinny country preacher named David Wilkerson opened a copy of Life Magazine to a picture of seven teenage boys on trial for murder. As he looked at their desperate faces, a sudden conviction possessed him that he must go to New York City--where he had never set foot to help these youngsters. The trip opened David's eyes to problems he hadn't known existed, problems that were defeating the best human wisdom, the most determined human efforts.

A quarter of a century later The Cross and the Switchblade continues to inspire as the story of the triumph of faith over the forces of evil. There is nothing vague about the power of the Holy Spirit as it is experienced in this battle. The Cross and the Switchblade has been a text book to millions in the practical application of Christian belief to problems of daily living that face us all.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Cross and the Switchblade?

A Great Testimony to the Power of God  May 23, 2008
This book is based on a true story. A true testimony to the power of God. The kind of transforming power still available today. The impact of this true story has continued to touch and change lives forever. The movie is also very powerful if you get the chance to view it. Thank God for men and women who continue to listen to God's voice in a time that many naysayers say the sitution is hopeless.
One of the best books I've ever read.  Apr 7, 2008
Just saw that there is an old movie, with Pat Boone, made from this book.
Don't know how the movie will be yet. However, I like to give good reviews for books that deserve them and many years after having read this one - which I had virtually forgotten til today - I still see it as one of the most profound witnesses to what a life in Messiah should reflect. Amazing story. It will bless you and humble you.
Cross & the Switchblade  Feb 19, 2008
This Book changed my life when I read it in jail in summer of 1970,after the hippie years of many many drugs and all that went along with it.I would surely be dead now if not for this book and the Lord Jesus who caused David Wilkerson to write it.Jail was the only place I would have stopped to read it at the time.So I am sure the Lord wanted me there then.I have been reformed since that day.I am presently giving it to my son who also has the bad addiction gene which seems to run in my family .He is currently serving 6 Months in mandatory County Rehab.So he too will have time to read it . I just pray that anyone who has a friend or family member who has an addiction of any kind will send this book to them to read it. They won't read the Bible but they will read this book- The Story of Rev. David Wilkerson,His life saving Teen Challenge Outreach and Nicky Cruz,whose life was also forever changed in this book.Praise God for this Book!!!
Christian Classic  Jan 1, 2008
The story of what God can do with a chosen vessel, and a heart of obedience.
Awesome story  Nov 20, 2007
This book was very interesting reading. I was familiar with Teen Challenge, but not familiar with how it started, only with the way I've seen it change people's lives. Also, I was born in 77' so to read about gangs and drugs in society during a previous generation and Wilerson's attempt to reach out was a world I hadn't been exposed too. My picuture of the 60s is of Mayberry, not the streets of New York, so it shattered some of my misconceptions.

Motivating story and an easy read worth your time.
