The tortured face of a young killer, one of seven boys on trial for a brutal murder, startled country preacher David Wilkerson on his lonely crusade to the most dangerous streets in the world. Violent gangs ruled by warlords, drug pushers and pimps held the streets of New York's ghettos in an iron grip. It was into this world that David stepped, armed only with a simple message of God's love and the promise of the Holy Spirit's power. Then the Miracles Began To Happen... Nicky Cruz is a heady mix or tribal warfare, loyalty and betrayal, sex drugs and murder, revealing the lonely, confused heart of a man inwardly running scared. An encounter with the unlikely character of the preacher David Wilkerson led Nicky to open his life to Christ - an incredible conversion that amazed all who knew him. The Cross and The Switchblade has sold millions of copies and has been made into a feature film.
