The Cross and the Switchblade

One of the first books I read after being born again was 'The Cross and the Switchblade'. I can remember so vividly the moment Wilkerson stood on the bridge at night and felt his call to New York. If you've never read it do and it's a great book to give to a new Christian.

'When David Wilkerson heard those words in his heart late one night as he glanced at a picture in Life magazine, he was dumbfounded. The boys in question were members of a violent gang and on trial for murder. He, on the other hand, was a country preacher settled comfortably in a little mountain church in Pennsylvania. What could God possibly expect him to accomplish—in New York City, of all places?'
