Amazing Book! Jan 29, 2009
Our son was in Teen Challenge and graduated from the year long Teen Challenge program, attended the year long Teen Challenge International Ministy Institute, as well as served a year as an intern with our local church in youth ministry and outreach. This book was required reading for him in the program. We also read it and couldn't put it down. Wow, God answers prayers with His perfect timing. Wonderful, inspiring book!!
THe Cross and the Switchblade Mar 21, 2007
THe moment I started reading it, it took me back to the time of 1959. This is a true story, it captured my total concentration.
Creepy Title, Awesome Book Jan 4, 2007
A mind blowing account of David Wilkerson's (founder of Teen Challenge) calling to minister to the youth on the streets in New York City. Thrilling book, a huge encouragement to those wondering if God can provide for their calling.
Old Favorite Jan 3, 2007
Was assigned to read back in HS. Enjoyed it even more as an adult!
Not as satisfied as before Aug 18, 2006
The book is not a good copy...it may be because it is old, but the pages are tearing out as I read them
Timeless Mar 28, 2006
I first read this book as a teenager 30 years ago. Its impact has never left me. I am now purchasing this book for my own teenage son. You will not regret reading it.
